ArcGIS for Server is a key component of the ArcGIS Platform. It provides you with a complete Web GIS that runs behind your firewall, on your infrastructure, and dovetails with your enterprise systems and policies.
ArcGIS for Server includes Portal for ArcGIS, helping you create and share maps and apps in just a few minutes. Portal for ArcGIS also gives you Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, so you can build intuitive and focused web apps that run anywhere, on any device—without writing a single line of code. Your portal provides tools for keeping your geographic assets secure as well as a set of authoritative (and beautiful) world basemaps.
ArcGIS for Server includes a suite of enterprise apps for lighting up your organization with geointelligence. These apps help your staff access and use 2D web maps and 3D scenes. Now anyone can tap into the power of spatial analytics. Use apps to collect and analyze business data, and then securely share the results between groups, departments, and offices. You can even configure your own apps from scratch and deploy them on any device—no coding required.
ArcGIS for Server includes everything you need to maintain a Web GIS implementation in your infrastructure. You have tools for managing access to content and apps, monitoring server statistics, securing your site, authorizing software, and automating administrative tasks. You can also manage ArcGIS Pro licenses, configure disconnected editing, and much more.
ArcGIS for Server is designed with your security in mind. You can define how user roles are managed and how users are authenticated. ArcGIS for Server provides a built-in identity store, but you can also configure it with your own Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server, Active Directory, or any third-party identity system that supports the standard SAML 2.0 protocol. All communication can be secured using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.
ArcGIS for Server includes ArcGIS Server, which you can use to manage and distribute GIS services. These services can be used with a wide variety of applications, including ArcGIS Desktop and story maps, integrated with custom applications, and much more. You can add capabilities to ArcGIS for Server that provide you with even more GIS functionality, such as real-time asset monitoring and analytics, complex network analysis, imagery processing and management, and production mapping.
With ArcGIS for Server, you can scale and integrate ArcGIS to support everyone in your organization's private network, no matter what device they use or where they are. It also allows you to manage and share massive volumes of geographic data with any number of users while staying in complete control over security and access. ArcGIS for Server, deployed on your infrastructure, is a key component of your complete location strategy.
