Source text - English Overview of the BES System
The BES system has the following main components:
•BES Clients, also called agents, are installed on every computer you wish to manage under BES. They access a collection of Fixlet messages that detects security holes, improper configurations and other vulnerabilities.
The BES Client is then capable of implementing corrective actions received from the BES Console through the BES Server. The BES Client is designed to run undetected by end users using a minimum of system resources. However, BES also allows the administrator to provide screen prompts for those actions that require user input.
•BES Servers offer a collection of interacting services, including application services, a web server and a database server, forming the heart of the BES system. It coordinates the flow of information to and from individual computers and stores the results in the BES database. The BES Server components operate quietly in the background, without any direct intervention from the administrator.
BES Servers also include a built-in Web Reporting module to allow authorized users to connect via a web browser to view all the information about computers, vulnerabilities, actions, and more. BES 7.0 is the first version to support multiple servers, adding a robust redundancy to the system.
•BES Relays increase the efficiency of the system. Instead of forcing each networked computer to directly access the BES Server, relays spread the load. Hundreds to thousands of BES Clients can point to a single BES Relay for downloads, which in turn makes only a single request of the server.
BES Relays can connect to other relays as well, further increasing efficiency. A BES Relay does not need to be a dedicated computer – the software can be installed on any Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003 computer with the BES Client installed. As soon as you install a BES Relay, the BES Clients on your network have the ability to automatically discover and connect to them.
•The BES Console ties all these components together to provide a system-wide view of all the computers on your network, along with their vulnerabilities and suggested remedies.
The BES Console allows an authorized user to quickly and simply distribute fixes to each computer that needs them without impacting any other networked computers.
I'm a native Chinese translator with 18 years technical translation experience, specializing in electronics and IT fields. I translated many documents and manuals for some technology companies over the past years, including IBM, Microsoft, Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Epson, Olympus, Sysmex, Panasonic, Murata, Nihon Kohden, Horiba, etc. To me, translation is a perfect way of combining my language skills with my broad electronic and IT knowledge.
