System requirements

These requirements are for Deep Security as a Service with Deep Security 10.1 Agents . Requirements vary by version. For previous versions of agents, or relays, see the documentation for Deep Security 9.6 SP1 or earlier or for Deep Security 10.0.

Deep Security Manager

System component Requirements
Database
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
  • Oracle Database 12c
  • Oracle Database 11g
  • PostgreSQL 9.6. Distributions that have been tested for use with Deep Security are:
  • Microsoft SQL RDS or Oracle RDS
  • Azure SQL Database (SaaS) (only with Deep Security Manager VM for Azure Marketplace)

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.

  • Co-locate the database and all Deep Security Manager nodes in the same physical data center, with a 1 Gb link or better to ensure 2 ms latency or less between them.
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 are deprecated and will not be supported by future releases. Plan to migrate to a newer version of Microsoft SQL Server if you're using them.

  • Microsoft SQL Server Express is supported in very limited deployments. See Microsoft SQL Server Express considerations for important details.
  • Oracle Database Express (XE) is not supported.
  • Oracle container database (CDB) configuration is not supported with Deep Security Manager multi-tenancy.
  • Apache Derby, which provided an embedded database for proof-of-concept and testing in previous versions of Deep Security, is not supported anymore.
Web browser

Cookies must be enabled.

  • Firefox 52.0.1+
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11+ or Edge
  • Google Chrome 57+
  • Apple Safari 9+ (for Mac)
Monitor 1024 x 768 resolution at 256 colors or higher
Supported Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance versions
  • Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance 10.1
  • Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance 10.0
  • Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance 9.6
  • Deep Security Agent, Relay, or Virtual Appliance 9.5
Relays must be 64-bit. 32-bit relays are not supported.

Deep Security Agent

System component Requirements

Minimum memory (RAM)

Total system memory

Windows

  • all protection enabled: 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)
  • Deep Security Relay feature only: 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)

Linux

  • all protection enabled: 1 GB RAM (5 GB recommended)
  • Deep Security Relay feature only: 1 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)
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
  • all protection enabled: 1 GB
  • without anti-malware: 500 MB
  • Deep Security Relay feature only: 30 GB
Deep Security Relay must store packages for each of your agents' platforms. If you have many different platforms, more disk space is required.
Operating system

This section lists the supported operating systems for Deep Security Agent 10.1. For a list of other agent and platform combinations that are supported with Deep Security Manager , see Deep Security Manager - Agent compatibility by platform.

Supported Deep Security features vary by platform.

Windows

  • Windows Server 2016 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 (64-bit) — Full Server or Server Core
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 10, 10 TH2, or 10 RS2 (32-bit and 64-bit)

    If you have an existing Deep Security Agent 9.6 or earlier installation, and want to upgrade to Windows 10, see Manually install the Deep Security Agent.
  • Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows XP Embedded (32-bit)
  • Hyper-V on Windows 2012 R2, 2012, 2008 R2, 7, and 8.1.

    Agents on Hyper-V only protect the hypervisor itself, not its guest OSes. Each guest OS must have its own agent, too.

    Combination mode with some agentless protection is not supported. (VMware ESXi hypervisor is required.)

  • Deep Security Relay feature enabled: Only 64-bit versions

Linux

Supported Linux kernels vary by distribution. See Deep Security 9.6 Supported Linux Kernels.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (64-bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • CentOS 7 (64-bit)
  • CentOS 6 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Oracle Linux 7 (64-bit)
  • Oracle Linux 6 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Docker support

With each Deep Security release, Deep Security supports the last 2 stable releases of Docker Community Edition (CE) and Docker Enterprise Edition (EE). (See Announcing Docker Enterprise Edition.) We do not officially support Docker Edge releases, but strive to test against Docker Edge releases to the best of our ability.

Support for new stable Docker releases is introduced with each release of Deep Security. We recommend that you refrain from upgrading to the latest stable release of Docker until Trend Micro documents the support statements for the latest Deep Security release.

Deep Security release Supported Docker Releases
Deep Security 10.0 Docker v1.12, v1.13
Deep Security 10.1 Docker 17.03-ce, v1.13

Deep Security is committed to supporting the environments, configurations, and platforms supported by Docker: https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/.

Before deploying Deep Security into your target environment, you should ensure that Docker supports your target environment and platform configuration.
