Database authentication

To access the SafeGuard Enterprise Database, the SafeGuard Management Center's first security officer must be authenticated at the SQL Server. This can be done in the following ways:

Find out from your SQL administrator which authentication method is appropriate for you, as a security officer. You need this information before generating the database and before first-time configuration in the SafeGuard Management Center Configuration Wizard.

Use SQL authentication for computers that are not part of a domain, but otherwise use Windows authentication. If you use SQL authentication, we highly recommend that you secure the connection to and from the database server with SSL. For further information, see Set up SSL.
