Getting started

Stormshield Data Security for Cloud & Mobility is a solution enabling to protect and view corporate data placed in the cloud from the workstations or mobile devices of the company. Data is protected when it is shared on secured shared spaces such as Microsoft Office 365 (SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business) and Dropbox.

The Stormshield server (Stormshield Data Management Center) allows centrally managing Data Security clients installed on users' workstations and mobile devices. It is hosted by Stormshield‘s Cloud services.

When you created your corporate account, you had to choose between two user key management modes:

  • Built-in Key Management: SDMC contains an internal directory that allows users to collaborate seamlessly without the need to deploy either the LDAP server or the PKI.

  • External key management (external PKI): User keys are managed by your organization's own PKI.

Select your mode carefully as the SDS for C&M built-in key management solution cannot be migrated to solutions using external PKIs. The external PKI would not be able to reuse keys.

In the documentation, Stormshield Data Security for Cloud & Mobility is referred to in its short form: SDS for C&M, and the Stormshield Data Management Center in the form: SDMC.
