Deep Security 10.3 has reached end of support. Use the version selector (above) to see more recent versions of the Help Center.
Each part of a Deep Security deployment has its own system requirements.
- Deep Security Manager
- Deep Security Agent 10.3
- Deep Security Virtual Appliance
- Deep Security Notifier
Requirements vary by version. For older versions of
For a list of agents versions that are compatible with this version of Deep Security Manager, see Deep Security Manager - Agent compatibility by platform.
|Minimum memory (RAM)||8 GB RAM, which includes:
Minimum RAM requirements depend on the number of agents that are being managed. (See Sizing.)
On Linux, reserved system memory is separate from process memory. Therefore, although the installer's estimate might be similar, it will detect less RAM than the computer actually has. To verify the computer's actual total RAM, log in with a superuser account and enter:
|Minimum disk space||1.5 GB (5 GB+ recommended)|
Deep Security Manager for AWS Marketplace requires AWS Linux (64-bit).
Disk space required varies by the size of the deployment, data retention, and frequency of logging.
Minimum free disk space = (2 x database size) + transaction log
For example, if your database plus transaction log is 40 GB, you must have 80 GB (40 x 2) of free disk space for database schema upgrades. To free disk space, delete any unnecessary event log data and transaction logs.
Cookies must be enabled.
|Monitor||1024 x 768 resolution at 256 colors or higher|
|Supported Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance versions||
Relays must be 64-bit. 32-bit relays are not supported.
For some platforms, the supported versions of Deep Security Agent listed above do not exist. Deep Security Manager
When using an older agent, you must go to Administration > System Settings > Update and select Allow supported 8.0 and 9.0 Agents to be updated. Otherwise Deep Security will conserve disk space by not downloading older update formats.
Total system memory
Requirements vary by OS version. Some versions may require less RAM. Less RAM is required also if you don't enable all Deep Security features.
|Minimum disk space||
Deep Security Relay must store packages for each of your agents' platforms. If you have many different platforms, more disk space is required.
For compatible Docker and OS platforms, see Deep Security Manager - Agent compatibility by platform.
On supported versions of Microsoft Windows, you must have at least PowerShell version 4.0 to run the agent deployment script.
Because Deep Security Virtual Appliance uses the same protection modules as Deep Security Agents, if you import an update to the 64-bit Deep Security Agent for Red Hat, it may notify you that new software is available for the Virtual Appliance, like it does for Red Hat agents.
64-bit, Intel-VT or AMD-V present and enabled in BIOS
|Minimum memory (RAM)||
4 GB RAM (varies by the number of VMs being protected)
|Minimum disk space||20 GB|
