App Connector Management

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The App Connector is a Docker container that runs on any Linux/Windows/Mac computer with Docker installed, making it infrastructure agnostic. This also allows it to be hosted on any cloud provider or on-premises. It establishes a single, reliable reverse tunnel connection to the HawkkProtect site, which is hosted on a cloud platform.

Only outbound Internet access is needed for App Connector. From a security viewpoint, inbound Internet connectivity to an app connector host is not necessary or recommended. You can restrict outbound ports to port 443 as required.

Ensure that the app connector has permission and routing rules to access private applications/services as well as the on-premise AD server (if any). The App Connector host computer will resolve and redirect applications configured on the Application Catalog page.

A user can access private organizational applications using the app connector deployed in the organizational network. App connectors allow the user to safely access private organizational applications without the use of VPN.
