G DATA Endpoint Security solutions offer flexible software, even for distributed remote workstations working from home.
The first question that should be clarified: how can the contact to the G DATA ManagementServer be realized?
In principle, security clients get the latest signature updates even without a direct connection to the G DATA ManagementServer (as long as this function is set correctly - G DATA SecurityClients load their signatures directly from the G DATA update servers). In this case, however, the administrator does not receive any information about incidents or requests via G DATA ManagementServer. The clients are on the way thus "flying blind". There are also some functional limitations associated with this. For example, the G DATA Firewall would not be installable without the G DATA ManagementServer.
The public accessibility of the G DATA ManagementServer (both Main- and SecondaryServer) solves these issues.
The following scenarios are possible:
- No contact with the G DATA ManagementServer possible (not recommended).
- The G DATA ManagementServer is located on an internal network - it can be reached via a public IP or DynDNS and port forwading.
- The G DATA ManagementServer is located in a DMZ and can be reached directly via a public IP.
- There is no way to make your own G DATA ManagementServer reachable from the outside.
