Each part of a Deep Security deployment has its own system requirements.
- Deep Security Manager
- Deep Security Agent 11.0
- Deep Security Virtual Appliance
- Deep Security Notifier
Requirements vary by version. For older versions of
- Deep Security 9.6 SP1 or earlier
- Deep Security 10.0
- Deep Security 10.1
- Deep Security 10.2
- Deep Security 10.3
If you plan to operate Deep Security in FIPS mode, see FIPS 140-2 support for additional requirements.
For a list of agents versions that are compatible with this version of Deep Security Manager, see Deep Security Agent platforms .
|Minimum memory (RAM)||
Minimum RAM requirements depend on the number of agents that are being managed. See Deep Security Manager 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 (200 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 and the features that you enable. See Deep Security Agent and Relay sizing.|
|Minimum disk space||See Deep Security Agent and Relay sizing.|
For compatible Docker and OS platforms, see Deep Security Agent platforms .
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

Use vSS with NSX for vShield Endpoint, NSX Standard, and NSX Data Center Standard licenses. (These license types only support vSS.) Use vDS with all other NSX license types.
Supported Deep Security features vary by platform. See Supported features by platform.
The VMs (guests) that will be protected by the virtual appliance have these requirements:
