Administrator accounts and AD Roles used to manage Encryption Anywhere

Solution



This article describes the Administrator Accounts required for Encryption Anywhere. These accounts are set up within the Encryption Anywhere Framework. When created, they initially show up within the Management Console as a "User Type" of User.

Accounts Created:
There are several new Administrator Accounts required for Encryption Anywhere. These can be added to existing AD Groups, or you can create new Groups for them. Here's a summary of the new Administrator Accounts.

ADAM Administrator - this is the database administrator for the Active Directory Application Mode used by Encryption Anywhere. This account is used to create the "Encryption Anywhere Framework" policy settings.

Client Administrator - you can create up to 50 Client Administrator accounts for Encryption Anywhere. These are the accounts that have permissions to access user machines that have Encryption Anywhere Hard Disk installed in the same manner that you use the EPHD Corporate and EPHD Local Administrator Accounts in today's product. Initially, each Client Administrator (CA) account is created as a User Type = User. You can add them to an existing AD Security Group or create a separate Security Group. The product provides the flexibility for you to choose.
