Deploying RocketCyber Agent Using Barracuda Managed Workplace

This guide will walk through creating an automation script to deploy the RocketCyber Agent.


First, a few notes about the agent deployment script:

  1. The console generates an agent deployment script (.mws) file that can be imported directly into Managed Workplace. You can use the same .mws file across customers. It requires that the appropriate license key parameter is filled in when scheduling the script to run. 
  2. The agent deployment script first checks to see if the agent is already installed before performing an install.
  3. If the agent deployment script does not detect an installed agent, it will download the agent installer package to the local machine and execute it.

Creating The Deployment Script

 1.    Log on to the RocketCyber console.  From the left hand navigation menu click on All Customers.

 2.    Click Deploy for the appropriate customer.

 3.    Click the Download button
