As SharePoint becomes an industry standard for collaboration and communications platforms, playing roles for project management and business critical application hosting, securing the platform becomes increasingly important across the enterprise.
Through the remainder of this guide, I will be showing you to deploy Antigen in a siloed single server SharePoint environment providing an extra layer of hardening into the overall architecture.
Grapping the Antigen installation package is usually a downloadable process, you can get an evaluation if you would like to first test it out.
The minimum requirements to run Antigen are:
- Windows 2003 Server or Windows 2003 for Small Business Servers
- MS Windows SharePoint Services 2003 or SharePoint Portal Server 2003
- 64 MB of Available Memory
- 100 MB of Available Disk Space
- Intel Processor
Once you have the installation package, you have to unzip the files, I unzipped my package to:
Once finished, you should have a total of 361 files that are unzipped, we have to navigate to the drive to start the installation.
Once you launch the setup file, you will be brought to a splash screen while the installation process loads and unpackages the required files.
The next page is a standard Microsoft license, so just click through.
You can install Antigen remotely, or you can install it on the box you are running the setup on. I am installing it on my SharePoint development machine, so I am going to select local installation. If you choose remote installation, you will have to fill in the required information for connectivity to the remote machine.
The next screen will just allow you to define the location of where you want the package to go.
Next, your installation will begin!
