Deploy Behind Firewalls
Use the DeployHQ Agent to deploy your servers securely behind a firewall.
How can you deploy behind a firewall?
Using our own in-house application, the DeployHQ Agent, you can deploy to one or more servers that are set behind a firewall.
This might be useful in corporate or educational institutions where your app is only accessible internally, and not available to the outside world.
Quite simply, the DeployHQ Agent sits on a server at the edge of a network, and keeps a persistent, secure connection to our network. Then, if you want to deploy to that same server, or anything behind it, you just have to allow the agent access by adding the server’s local IP address to its whitelist.
Then, when you add your server, you just need to select the option to connect via the appropriate agent and DeployHQ will take care of the rest!
Any server type that you can deploy to through the DeployHQ platform will work with the agent, whether that’s an FTP server, or an S3 bucket.
