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 endpoint 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.
