Summary

OfficeScan clients and the Smart Protection Server can communicate using HTTP or HTTPS during File Reputation Service. The communication between these two applications is not in clear text but rather uses a hashing algorithm.

If the Smart Protection Server and OfficeScan clients are located in the internal network (LAN), Trend Micro recommends using HTTP. HTTP requires less bandwidth and communication performance between the OfficeScan clients and then Smart Protection Server is better compared to using HTTPS.
