Connectors

A connector is a means of getting into or out of a constrained environment. The most common case is to get access to one or more internal resources (Web Application, Network Resource, Share, Desktop).

Agilicus supports two connector types:

  • Agent. A self-updating, self-managing component that creates an outbound-only connection, and then allows reverse tunnelling. This is the most capable method
  • IPSEC site-to-site. In this method an IPSEC tunnel is created between the Agilicus cloud and the protected site, and connections run over it.

When deciding how to proceed, consider these points:

CapabilityAgilicus AgentSite-to-Site IPSEC
File-system Share
Remote Desktop
Outbound-only connectivity, no public IP
End-To-End TLS, secure key enclave
TCP-based resource
On-site identity-aware proxy
Local Machine Authentication re-export
1+1 High Availability
M:N High Availability
Site-to-site TCP forwarder
HTTP Proxy

You need to have 1 connector per (internal) network segment that has resources to be exported. Typically this might mean only 1 per site, or per protected subnet or VLAN. Some customers prefer to install an Agent Connector co-located on the resource, but this is not strictly necessary.

See the guide for more information on installing the Agilicus Agent Connector.
