This article describes how to download the Encryption Desktop client installers form Encryption Management 3.x.
The Encryption Management Server acts as a deployment manager for your Encryption Desktop deployments. You create Encryption Desktop client installers with the features and settings that support your organization's security requirements, then distribute those client installers to your end users.
Encryption Management Server allows you to create custom client installers for each user policy you create on the server. If you do not create a custom user policy, then the Internal Users: Default policy is the only policy you can apply to your Encryption Desktop users. Prior to downloading the client installers, you must configure the settings on the Encryption Desktop screen for the custom user policy.
Creating an Installer with Auto-Detect Policy
Note: In the Mail Server Binding, you can type the name of a specific mail server you want bound to that Encryption Management Server.
Creating an Installer with Preset Policy
|Caution: Use this option carefully; most product features do not work in this mode.|
|Note: You can also select to Embed Policy into the installer. In this case, there is no connection between the client and the Encryption Management Server. The client never receives any updated policy information from the Encryption Management management server, even if the policy is updated on the server side. This is available in Encryption Desktop for Windows only.|
|Note: In the Mail Server Binding, you can type the name of a specific mail server you want bound to that Encryption Management Server.
You must have a mail server defined unless your users read mail directly from the Encryption Management Server via POP or IMAP.
