|Installation / About upgrading|
This section applies to both managed and unmanaged endpoints.
SafeGuard Enterprise encryption software version 6.10 or later must be installed. Older versions must first be upgraded to version 6.10.
SafeGuard Enterprise Database, SafeGuard Enterprise Server, and SafeGuard Management Center must have been upgraded to the latest version. For successful operation, version numbers of SafeGuard Enterprise Database, SafeGuard Enterprise Server and SafeGuard Management Center must match.
SafeGuard Management Center 8.0 and SafeGuard Enterprise Server 8.0 can manage SafeGuard Enterprise protected endpoints version 6.0 or later. However, we recommend that you use the same version of encryption software on every endpoint.
Make sure that you have Windows administrator rights.
To upgrade SafeGuard Enterprise-protected endpoints:
Windows Installer recognizes the features that are already installed and only upgrades these. If Power-on Authentication is installed, an updated POA kernel is also available after a successful update (policies, keys, etc.). SafeGuard Enterprise is automatically restarted on the computer.
The latest version of the SafeGuard Enterprise encryption software is installed on the endpoints. Next, upgrade the endpoint configuration.
