Large Multi-Site Deployment with One Endpoint Security Manager

system-arch-large-multi-site-one-esm.png
This multi-site deployment scenario supports up to 150,000 Traps agents and consists of the following components:
  • One dedicated database server
  • One ESM Console in the same location as the database for managing the security policy and Traps agents
  • One ESM Server for every 30,000 Traps agents in each site (for a maximum of 150,000 agents)
  • One forensic folder for each ESM Server that is accessible by all endpoints for storing real-time forensic details about security events
  • (Recommended) WildFire integration
  • (Optional) Load balancer for distributing traffic across ESM Servers
  • (Optional) External logging platform such as an SIEM or syslog
In this example, Sites A, B, C, D, and E each need to support up to 30,000 Traps agents. To support this scenario, you must deploy an ESM Server in each site that retrieves the security policy from the database located in Site A. The agents connect to the Endpoint Security Manager using their local ESM Servers as the primary server and use the ESM Servers at other sites as secondary servers.
