The architecture of MaxPatrol TM is flexible: scale up and deploy at companies of any size. Match MaxPatrol TM to your infrastructure by picking the number of servers, scanners, and scanning modes.
The core of the system is MP Server. This management module is the go-to place for configuring the system. It includes MP Scanner, which scans, collects, and processes data. If necessary, connect additional scanning modules to MP Server. Adding modules improves scanning speed and sensitivity to network topology.
On large distributed systems, MaxPatrol Consolidation Server is just the thing. This server aggregates information from multiple MP Server modules for a full portrait of the entire IT infrastructure.
MaxPatrol Local Update Server (LUS) is the repository for the knowledge base, which contains information on checks, vulnerabilities, and standards.
MaxPatrol Mobile Server is a special version designed for mobile computers.
For a small office, all that’s needed is a single MP Server with built-in scanner and management console. This is the minimum deployment option for MaxPatrol TM.
On mid-sized networks, MaxPatrolTM is designed to connect to multiple scanners.
Additional scanners help you to:
- Scale the system (when you need to scan a large number of hosts).
- Scan low-bandwidth network segments.
- Compensate for network topology, such as if security solutions or management interfaces are on a separate virtual network (VLAN).
At larger companies with multiple offices, MP Server is installed at each location. MP Consolidation Server and MP Local Update Server are deployed centrally at headquarters.
MP Consolidation Server is the hub for collecting and storing scan results from MP Server deployments, enabling centralized reporting.
