Creating and managing SDS Enterprise accounts on user workstations

When agents are deployed on user workstations, users need SDS Enterprise accounts in order to use the product's features.

Depending on the account types defined in the policy, accounts are created either manually or automatically:

  • Password accounts: manual

  • Smart card and USB token accounts: manual or automatic

  • Single Sign-on (SSO) accounts: automatic with transparent authentication

Regardless of the account type, you must allow account creation beforehand in the security policy. For more information, see the section Configuring user accounts.

Creating your account may involve creating your main key(s), which will be used for securing your files, volumes and messages, and self-certifying the key so that you can use it immediately.

Once users have SDS Enterprise accounts, the product is ready for use. For find out how to use SDS Enterprise, refer to the Advanced user guide
