Migrate from SafeGuard Enterprise Full Disk Encryption

Follow these steps to migrate.

To migrate from SafeGuard Enterprise Full Disk Encryption:

  1. Uninstall the Sophos SafeGuard Client software.
    Encrypted volumes are decrypted automatically. Encrypted files remain encrypted.
  2. Install the Sophos Central Device Encryption software.
  3. Make sure that a Sophos Central Device Encryption policy is assigned to the endpoint and enabled.
  4. Re-install the required SafeGuard Enterprise File Encryption module (Synchronized Encryption or Location Based File Encryption).

You can now manage BitLocker using Sophos Central. Once you have applied a Sophos Central Device Encryption policy to the endpoint, encryption starts in the background and the recovery key is renewed and sent to Sophos Central
