The EmpowerID Cloud Gateway enables your EmpowerID Cloud tenant to inventory and manage your on-premise systems without requiring ports to be opened on your firewall. The Cloud Gateway is a lightweight client that can be installed on a Windows desktop or server machine in your on-premise network. The Cloud Gateway client then makes a secure and encrypted outbound HTTPS connection to an EmpowerID queue in Azure as a bridge for communication between the EmpowerID Cloud servers and your on-premise network. You can install multiple Cloud Gateways on-premise for fault tolerance and increased performance.
