Product Overview

The Device Control software application is based on a multi-tier software architecture that processes and stores data for Application Control and Device Control. Users can interact with the application through the client interface. A separate Management Console provides a user interface for network administrators.

The primary components of the Device Control solution are:

  • The Device Control database which serves as the central repository of authorization information for devices and applications.
  • One or more Application Servers that communicate between the database, the protected clients, and the Management Console.
  • The Device Control client, which is installed on each computer, either end-point or server, that you want to protect.
  • The Management Console, which provides the administrative user interface for the Application Server.

The following figure illustrates the relationships between the Device Control components.
