|Advanced management / Keys and Certificates|
In a SafeGuard Enterprise installation, the following two items are critical and must be backed up in a safe location:
The company certificate stored in the SafeGuard Database.
The Master Security Officer (MSO) certificate residing in the certificate store of the computer on which the SafeGuard Management Center is installed.
You can export both certificates in form of .p12 files for backup purposes. To restore installations, you can import the relevant company and security officer certificate as .p12 files and use them when you set up a new database. This avoids restoring the whole database.
