Get Deep Security Agent software

Deep Security is modular. Initially, Deep Security Agent only has core functionality. When you enable a protection module, then the agent downloads that plug-in and installs it.

Updated software packages are automatically imported into Deep Security as a Service and appear on Administration > Updates > Software > Local.

You can download the agent installer from Deep Security Manager.

  1. In Deep Security Manager, go to Administration > Updates > Software > Local.
  2. Select your agent from the list.
  3. Click Export > Export Installer.

    If you have older versions, the latest version of the software will have a green check mark in the Is Latest column.

  4. Save the agent installer. If you will install the agent manually, save it on the computer where you want to install Deep Security Agent.
To install Deep Security Agent, only use the exported agent installer (the .msi or the .rpm file) - not the full agent ZIP package. If you run the agent installer from the same folder that holds the other zipped agent components, all protection modules will be installed, even if you haven't enabled them on the computer. This consumes extra disk space. (For comparison, if you use the .msi or .rpm file, the agent will download and install protection modules only if your configuration requires them.)
Installing an agent, activating it, and applying protection with a security policy can be done using a command line script. For more information, see Use deployment scripts to add and protect computers.
You can generate deployment scripts to automate the agent installation using the Deep Security API. For more information, see Generate an agent deployment script.
