Shared Helpdesk and Recovery roles

In built-in key management mode, the Helpdesk and Recovery roles can now be shared among several users.

New security administrator role

In built-in key management mode, the SDMC security administrator is the first user registered on the server. In addition to holding the Helpdesk and Recovery roles, this user can now assign these roles individually to other users. This operation is performed through the new Portal SDS for C&M. This feature makes it possible to share administration duties among several users.

Collaboration between several partner companies

You can now invite users using other corporate accounts to work together with your users, allowing you to access the directories of these companies. Your users will then be able to exchange protected data easily with all users from partner companies.

User whitelist

By default in SDS for C&M, any user from the allowed domains can create an account and use the service. It is now possible to allow access to only a user whitelist that has been declared beforehand via the API. In this case, users that are not on the whitelist will not be able to create SDS for C&M accounts.

Re-sending emails

Activation e-mails for user accounts and administrators' invitation e-mails can now be manually re-sent.

Administrator notifications

Administrators now receive notification e-mails every time there is a connection to their account and during each step of an external collaboration (i.e., new requests, accepted or rejected collaboration requests, end of a collaboration).

These notifications can be disabled in your administrator profile.


When logs are being exported via the SDMC API, a new remote_ip field represents the IPv4 or IPv6 address of the device that generated the log.
