Installing packages and features

The following table shows the installation packages and features of the SafeGuard Enterprise encryption software on endpoints. You find the installation packages in the Installers folder of your product delivery.

The default installation (Complete or Typical) consists of BitLocker and Synchronized Encryption. If you are not using any file encryption module, we recommend that you select a Custom installation and only install BitLocker full disk encryption.

Note that you can only install either Synchronized Encryption or location-based File Encryption, not both.

Note: When the operating system of the endpoint is Windows 64-bit, install the 64-bit variant of the installation packages (<package name>_x64.msi).
