The company certificate is used to differentiate between SafeGuard Management installations. In combination with the MSO certificate, it allows you to restore a broken SafeGuard Enterprise Database configuration.
For endpoints with SafeGuard Enterprise older than 6.1, you must select SHA-1 under Hash algorithm for generated certificates. For further information, see Change algorithm for self-signed certificates.
The newly created company certificate is stored in the database.
