White Lists for Device Protection policies for file-based encryption

In the SafeGuard Management Center, you can select White Lists as targets for policies of the type Device Protection for file-based encryption. This allows you to create encryption policies for specific device models or even for distinct devices.

Before you select a White List as a target for a Device Protection policy, you have to create and register it in the SafeGuard Management Center. You can define White Lists for specific storage device models (for example iPod, USB devices from a specific vendor etc.) or for distinct storage devices according to serial number. You can add the devices to White Lists manually or use the results of a SafeGuard PortAuditor scan. For further information, refer to the SafeGuard PortAuditor user guide.

Afterwards, you can select the White List as a target when you create a Device Protection policy.

Note: If you select a White List as a target for a policy of the type Device Protection, you can only select File-Based or No Encryption as the Media encryption mode. If you select No Encryption for a Device Protection policy with a White List, this policy does not exclude a device from encryption, if another policy applies that specifies volume-based encryption.
Note: For SafeStick devices from BlockMaster special requirements apply. These devices have different IDs for administrators and users without administrator privileges. For consistent handling within SafeGuard Enterprise, you must add both IDs to White Lists. SafeGuard PortAuditor detects both IDs, if a SafeStick device has been opened at least once on the computer scanned by SafeGuard PortAuditor.
