Register as a new user

For information on users logging on to SafeGuard Enterprise for the first time, see SafeGuard Power-on Authentication (POA).

When a new user logs on to SafeGuard Enterprise once their endpoint has contacted the SafeGuard Enterprise Server, they are registered and automatically displayed in the Users and Computers area of the SafeGuard Management Center under their respective domain or workgroup.

The directory for these users/computers (.Auto registered) is automatically created under the root directory and under each domain/workgroup. It cannot be renamed nor moved. Objects in this directory cannot be moved manually either. When the organizational unit (OU) is synchronized with the next contact to the SafeGuard Enterprise Database, the object is moved to the respective OU. Otherwise it remains under the .Auto registered directory of their domain/workgroup.

As a security officer you can then manage the auto-registered objects as usual.

Note: Local users cannot log on to SafeGuard Enterprise with an empty password. Local users who log on to SafeGuard Enterprise with an empty password remain guest users and are not saved to the database. If Windows Autologon is activated for these users, logon is denied. For a successful logon at SafeGuard Enterprise, a new password must be created in this case and Windows Autologon must be deactivated in the registry of the endpoint.
Note: Microsoft accounts are always handled as SafeGuard Enterprise guest users.
