Migrate from SafeGuard Enterprise Full Disk Encryption

Follow these steps 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
