Policy Broker is responsible for managing access to both policy data (including clients, filters, filter components, and delegated administration settings) and to certain global settings that apply to the entire deployment. Settings specific to a single Policy Server instance (like its Filtering Service and Network Agent connections) are stored separately.
Even in multiple Policy Server environments, the same set of policy and general configuration data is shared throughout the deployment, thanks to Policy Broker.

It is possible to install one or more Policy broker replicas in addition to the primary Policy Broker. In a replicated environment, changes made in the Forcepoint Security Manager are saved to the primary Policy Broker. After the change, each replica synchronizes its copy of the data to receive the latest updates.

Whether you have a single (standalone) Policy Broker or a primary Policy Broker with replicas, be sure to back up your policy and configuration data on a regular basis. See the Backup and Restore FAQ for more information.
