The PCoIP Connection Manager and the PCoIP Security Gateway are both part of the Teradici Cloud Access Platform and are deployed together.

The PCoIP Connection Manager enables the PCoIP client and the PCoIP agent to establish a remote desktop connection by creating a PCoIP session. It works with a Teradici Cloud Access Manager or a third-party connection broker to authenticate the user and query the desktop and applications.

The PCoIP Security Gateway enables WAN users to securely access their remote desktops via the Internet without setting up a VPN connection. The PCoIP Security Gateway is not required for LAN access.
