About the Install

Skyhigh Security Client Proxy consists of server and client software, whose deployment details depend on the management platform you are using.

Client Proxy is managed with Skyhigh Security ePolicy Orchestrator® (Skyhigh Security ePO™) , Skyhigh Security ePolicy Orchestrator® Cloud (Skyhigh Security ePO™ Cloud) , or Skyhigh Security Trellix ePO. While Client Proxy is a managed product, the user or client computers in your organization can be managed or unmanaged.

Server software

The server software adds the Client Proxy server functionality to the Trellix ePO, Trellix ePO Cloud, or Trellix ePO. Because the server software extends the management platform functionality, it is called the extension software or extension. It is also called the manager.

Client software

Client computers can be managed with Trellix ePO, Trellix ePO Cloud, or Trellix ePO. Managed client computers are called endpoints. Unmanaged clients are called standalone computers.

The deployment of the client software to the client computers depends on whether they are managed or standalone. The deployment of the Client Proxy policy also depends on whether the client computers are managed or standalone.
