View a list of available agent software

To view a list of all available software:

  1. In Deep Security as a Service, go to Administration > Updates > Software > Local. All available software appears.
  2. (Optional) Organize the list of software by version or platform (OS) by selecting Version or Platform from the drop-down list at the top.

Export the agent installer

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.

    If you're looking for a Solaris agent, see Solaris-version-to-agent-package mapping table for information on which agent to choose.

  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, .rpm, .pkg, .p5p, or .bff file depending on the platform) 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, .rpm, .pkg, .p5p, or .bff 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.

Solaris-version-to-agent-package mapping table

If you're not sure which agent package to pick when exporting the agent, review the mapping table below.

Solaris-version-to-agent-package mapping table 

If you're installing the agent on... Choose this agent package...
Solaris 10 Updates 4-6 (64-bit, SPARC or x86)

Agent-Solaris_5.10_U5-xx.x.x-xxx.<sparc|.x86_64>.zip

Solaris 10 Updates 7-11 (64-bit, SPARC or x86)

Agent-Solaris_5.10_U7-xx.x.x-xxx.<sparc|.x86_64>.zip

Solaris 11.0 (1111)-11.3 (64-bit, SPARC or x86)

Agent-Solaris_5.11-xx.x.x-xxx.<sparc|.x86_64>.zip

Solaris 11.4 (64-bit, SPARC or x86) Agent-Solaris_5.11_U4-xx.x.x-xxx.<sparc|.x86_64>.zip
  • xx.x.x.xxx is the build number of the agent. For example: 12.0.0-682
  • <sparc|.x86_64> is one of sparc or .x86_64, depending on the Solaris processor.

AIX agent package naming format

The naming format is different depending on the agent version:

  • Deep Security Agent 12 for AIX: Agent-AIX-<agent_release>-<agent_build>.powerpc.zip. Example: Agent-AIX-12.0.0-1234.powerpc.zip.
  • Deep Security Agent 9.0 for AIX: Agent-AIX_<AIX_version>-<agent_release>-<build>.powerpc.bff.gz.zip. Example: Agent-AIX_5.3-9.0.0-5625.powerpc.bff.gz.zip.

For details on which agent you'll need for the version of AIX you're using, see Deep Security Agent platforms.
