Many features and modules are optionally enabled and configured. The 1E Client can also be extended to support additional features and client modules.
1E Client does not include modules for 1E NightWatchman Agent and PXE Everywhere, which are available as separate agents. However, NightWatchman Management Center optionally integrates with Tachyon to provide online status of its clients.
On Windows devices, the 1E Client is installed as a Windows service, with a small footprint, with some client modules having their own service if enabled. On non-Windows devices, the 1E Client is installed as a background daemon, also referred to as a service on macOS.
1E Client versions
The picture below shows the evolution of the 1E Client from a combination of other 1E Agents.
The 1E Client Deployment Assistant (CDA) can be used with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager to deploy 1E Client, and also 1E NightWatchman Agent and PXE Everywhere.
1E Client may be deployed independently using alternative software distribution methods.

1E does not provide support for 1E products on the following OS unless the OS is explicitly listed as being supported for a specific 1E product or product feature. This is because Microsoft has ended mainstream support for these OS or they are not significantly used by business organizations.
