Question

How many users does Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption support?

Answer

Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption allows a maximum of 16 users (including *AUTOUSER and SYSTEM).

In a default configuration the users USER and SYSTEM are created. The user SYSTEM cannot be deleted or even changed.

Typically end users are prompted to provide a 'User ID' and a 'Password' in the PBA screen. To look like older versions, where only a password box was displayed, one Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption user can be defined as 'default user'. Then the user only has to enter his password.

If a different user from the default user wants to login to the workstation, he can switch from 'password only' login to the 'extended login' in the PBA screen by pressing the key [F2].
