Hello,

 

I think what you really need is called "F-Secure Policy Manager Proxy 13.10" and its intended use is almost exactly the scenario you described.

 

Please check this doc to see if it fits your situation:

Hi,

Hello,

 

> client doesn't have a server to install proxy

 

Unofficially speaking, I think it would work fine on a workstation edition of Windows 7/8/10 64-bit, provided you run it on reasonable hardware (e.g. 4GB RAM, Core2 Quad or i3/i5 grade CPU and a fast, spacious disk storage). You would save a lot of bandwidth by using the PM Proxy.

 

(By the way, even the "Policy Manager Server 13.10" can be installed fully on Win 7/8/10, it just notifies about the officially unsupported environment during the setup wizard.)

 

Anyhow, the previous generation of "Policy Manager Proxy" product used to work on Windows workstation platforms officially. I don't know why F-Secure Corp. decided to declare only the "Server" editions of Windows as supported for the major version 13 of Policy Manager Proxy product? It's not a good vendor decision in my opinion.

I guess your VPN is as broad/slow as your Internet connection. So it does not matter if ONE client or a Proxy fetches the updates from F-Secure or from the PMS.

In this situation I would recommend to enable Neigborcast on all clients in the reomote office. They will start to update internally on a P2P basis before asking the PMS and even then only one Client will ask the PMS and then share with the others.

So your comunication load is similar without the need to implement a proxy.
