Agent platform support table

Deep Security Manager supports the Deep Security Agents on the operating systems shown in the table below. If platform support was added in an update release, the minimum update version is noted next to the check mark in the table.

Deep Security Manager supports the use of older agent versions, but we do encourage customers to upgrade agents regularly. New agent releases provide additional security features and protection, higher quality, performance improvements, and updates to stay in sync with releases from each platform vendor.

Not all Deep Security features are available on all platforms. See Supported features by platform.
The Deep Security Agent can be installed and is fully supported on any of the below platforms running in Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Microsoft Azure.

Support for these releases is ending soon. Please upgrade to Deep Security Agent 12 as soon as possible.

If platform support was added in an update release, the minimum update version is noted next to the check mark in the table, for example, ✔ U1.

Note 1: Microsoft releases regular, semi-annual releases for Microsoft Windows 10. For details about which specific releases are supported, see Deep Security Support for Windows 10.

Note 2: All Trend Micro testing on Windows Embedded platforms is performed in a virtualized environment. Because these operating systems are typically run on custom hardware (for example, on point-of-sale terminals), customers must plan to thoroughly test on their target hardware platform prior to deployment in a production environment. In addition, before raising support cases, customers should attempt to reproduce problems in a virtualized environment because this is the environment the Trend Micro support team has available. If the issue is specific to deployments on custom hardware, Trend Micro may require the customer to provide us with remote access to a suitable environment before we can fully respond to support cases.

Note 3: Deep Security Agent is supported with both Full/Desktop Experience and Server Core installations of Windows Server 2012 and later. For Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, only Full installations are supported.

Docker support

You can use Deep Security 10.0 or later to protect Docker hosts and containers running on Linux distributions. Windows is not supported.

With each Deep Security release, Deep Security supports the last two 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 support for Docker releases includes any sub-versions of those releases. For example, Deep Security 11.0 supports Docker 17.09-ce including its sub-versions: 17.09.0-ce and 17.09.1-ce.

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