In part 1 we installed the VMware vShield part which is needed to get Trend Micro Deep Security up and running. In part 2 we created a database instance that will be used by the Deep Security Manager (DSM). In this part we’ll focus on the installation of the DSM itself. The DSM is the management interface used to manage and monitor the Deep Security environment. You will use this to deploy Deep Security Virtual Appliance (DSVA) instances as well as creating scan profiles, monitor the Deep Security infrastructure and more.

Let’s install the DSM now, first we’ll need to make sure we’ll have the right software (can be downloaded here):
