SafeGuard Enterprise supports encrypting the transport connections between its
components with SSL. You can use SSL to encrypt transport between the following
- Database Server <-> SafeGuard Enterprise Server with IIS
- Database Server <-> SafeGuard Management Center
- SafeGuard Enterprise Server with IIS <-> managed endpoints
Note: Alternatively, the connection between the SafeGuard Enterprise Server and the
SafeGuard Enterprise managed endpoints can be secured by SafeGuard specific
encryption. However, this is recommended for demo or test setups only. For ideal
security and performance, we strongly recommend that you use SSL encrypted
communication. If, for some reason, this is not possible and SafeGuard-specific
encryption is used, there is an upper limit of 1000 clients that connect to a
single server instance.
Note: Mac OS X clients can only use
Before activating SSL in SafeGuard Enterprise, a working SSL environment
needs to be set up.
