Please note that WinMagic is deprecating SecureDoc V4 Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) support for SEDs in favor of the fuller function, more capable, V5 Pre-Boot Linux (PBL). The existing V4 support for SEDs will remain in the product for the time being but will not be maintained or enhanced. We recommend that customers migrate to V5 PBL over the course of the next year.
WinMagic has done extensive work to improve, streamline and augment the security surrounding the initial deployment of Key Files during the process of installing the SecureDoc Client software, bearing in mind that many customers have widely divergent requirements relating to how devices are used during and after initial installation. Some customers install SecureDoc while the primary device user is on or will be on the machine, while others may need to protect new devices before the end-users of those devices have been defined, as well as other scenarios.
Please refer to the When SecureDoc server is upgraded to version 7.1SR2a HF2 from previous versions (6.5 or earlier) and the Setting up Device Provisioning Rules sections under the Creating Installation Packages for Windows chapter in the SES User Manual to understand how these new settings work, in order to inform your own use of these new features, particularly as they operate in a way that cannot be easily migrated from the previous methodology to the new methodology. Upon upgrading from an earlier version, you will need to adjust each of your existing Installation Packages to reflect the deployment methodology that will meet your security design.
System requirements and supported devices, including tokens and SmartCards, for SecureDoc v7.1 SR2a HF2 are listed here.
Note: It is strongly recommended to initially install Full-Text Indexing feature (Full-Text Search) into the Database Engine, before performing an SES installation. More information can be found here: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143786(v=sql.100).ASPX
During the installation of SES, if Full-Text Indexing has not been installed, a message will appear indicating the absence of the Full-Text Indexing. This message will not allow the user to stop the installation of SES which will require retrofitting Full-Text Indexing into an existing SQL Server.
Note: Use of the SES Console will require the user to have at least local admin rights on the server or client device (e.g. Admin desktop) on which it runs, in order for the console to function properly.
