You can run an SMC server in two different ways:
- With an on-premise installation to keep your data in-house on your own server.
- Using the SMC as a service version where no hardware is necessary on your part.
Note – To use SMC you need a valid license. After downloading the software from the Sophos Mobile Control Website, you receive a trial license. You can get a full license from your Sophos partner.
