Disk Encryption tab

This tab is only displayed when SafeGuard Native Device Encryption is installed.

The Disk Encryption tab contains information about the current policies and the encryption status of your Mac.

The first window section tells you whether the system disk should be encrypted according to the policy set by the security officer.

The second window section displays the status of the Mac. This can be one of the following:

  • The system disk is encrypted and a centrally stored recovery key is available.
  • The system disk is encrypted but there is no centrally stored recovery key available.
  • The system disk is not encrypted.

At the bottom, the Decrypt System Disk button is displayed. It is available if the security officer has set a policy defining that no encryption is necessary for the endpoint.
