SafeGuard Enterprise uses two types of accounts to enable users to log on to endpoints and carry out administrative tasks after SafeGuard Enterprise has been installed.
Service accounts for Windows logon
With service accounts, administrators can log on (Windows logon) to endpoints after the installation of SafeGuard Enterprise without activating the SafeGuard Power-on Authentication and without being added as users to the endpoints. Service accounts lists are defined in the Policies area of the SafeGuard Management Center and assigned in policies to the endpoint. Users included on a service account list are treated as guest users when logging on at the endpoint.
For further information, see Service Account Lists for Windows logon.
POA users for SafeGuard POA logon
POA users are predefined local accounts that enable users to log on (SafeGuard POA logon) to endpoints after the SafeGuard Power-on Authentication has been activated to perform administrative tasks. The accounts are defined in the Users and Computers area of the SafeGuard Management Center (user ID and password) and assigned to the endpoints by means of POA groups included in configuration packages.
