Install the ESET PROTECT server

ESET PROTECT component structure

To manage small to medium-sized networks (1,000 clients or fewer), a single machine with the ESET PROTECT server and all its components (supplied web server, database, and so on) installed on it is usually sufficient. You can think of it as a single server or stand-alone installation. All managed clients are connected directly to the ESET PROTECT server via the ESET Management Agent. The administrator can connect to the ESET PROTECT Web Console via a web browser from any computer on the network or run the Web Console directly from the ESET PROTECT server.

Installation

ESET PROTECT installers are available in different formats to support various installation methods:

ESET recommends the All-in-one installer for small deployments on Windows.

ESET recommends deploying a pre-configured ESET PROTECT Virtual Appliance (running on CentOS Linux) if you use a hypervisor. Its deployment is quick and more straightforward than installation on Windows.
