  • You use Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise 8.0.
  • You have configured external user management for the Self Service Portal, using the same Active Directory user database that is configured in SafeGuard Enterprise.
  • Sophos Secure Workspace is managed by Sophos Mobile. This requires a Mobile Advanced license.

  5. Optional Select Recovery via mobile to enable the synchronization of BitLocker and FileVault recovery keys with the Sophos Secure Workspace app.
  6. On the Managed client packages tab, configure the following settings:
    • In the Configuration Package Name field, select Managed Client (Default).
    • In the Primary Server field, select your SGN server.
