Policy Manager Proxy on Windows 7

Mhouston100 W/ Alumni Posts: 7 Security Scout

Hi everyone,


We are lookign for a replacement for SEP and F-Secure with Policy Manager Console looks like it would fit the bill.  One thing I'm concerned about though is that we have a lot of branch sites, which we would be installing the Manager Console Proxy on to distribute updates.


We do have a lot of even smaller sites that don't have a server, they have some local file shares usually on a Windows 7 PC.  The requirements for Manager Console Proxy only list Windows Server OS's, is this a hard requirement or a recommendation?  Is it possible to install the Proxy on a Windows 7 machine.


Follow up question, is there other ways to distribute the updates to these satellite sites while conserving bandwidth?


Thanks in advance!
