About distribution points

Device with Network Agent installed can be used as distribution point. In this mode, Network Agent can perform the following functions:

Deployment of distribution points in an organization's network pursues the following objectives:

A distribution point is assigned for an administration group. In this case, the distribution point's scope includes all devices within the administration group and all of its subgroups. However, the device acting as the distribution point does not have to be included in the administration group to which it has been assigned.

You can make a distribution point function as a connection gateway. In this case, devices in the scope of this distribution point will be connected to the Administration Server through the gateway, not directly. You can use this mode in scenarios that do not allow the establishment of a direct connection between devices with Network Agent and an Administration Server.

Devices functioning as distribution points must be protected, including physical protection, against any unauthorized access.
