Creating service account lists

Note: This section is only relevant for endpoints with Power-on Authentication.

If you would like to install SafeGuard Enterprise with a central rollout, we recommend that you configure a service account list. Once an IT administrator is added to the service account list, they can log on to endpoints after the installation of SafeGuard Enterprise without activating the Power-on Authentication (POA). This is advisable because normally the first user who logs on to an endpoint after installation is added to the POA as the primary account. Users included in a service account list, however, are treated as SafeGuard Enterprise guest users.

With service accounts the workflow is as follows:

Note: You need to create service account lists in a policy and assign them to the first policy group of the first configuration package you install on the endpoint after the encryption software is installed. For further information, see Service Account Lists for Windows logon .
