SDS Encryption Portal

End users can now perform the following operations by accessing SDS Encryption Portal in their browsers without the prior installation of the SDS for C&M client on their workstations.

  • Create an SDS for C&M account,
  • Log in with their SDS for C&M accounts,
  • Protect confidential files,
  • Open protected files.

SDS for C&M becomes much easier to deploy and use, since the server can be accessed on all operating systems.

Collaboration with external users

SDS for C&M makes it possible to share protected files with external users who do not have the SDS for C&M client on their computers or mobile devices. In the Grant access menu in the SDS for C&M client, the user enters the recipients’ e-mail addresses, then grants them access to the files.

On the recipients’ side, they either authenticate on SDS Encryption Portal through their SDS for C&M accounts, or use a code that they received via email if they do not have accounts. They can then upload the protected file to the web page suggested by SDS Encryption Portal, which decrypts and saves it directly on the workstation.

Shared Helpdesk and Recovery roles

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.
