Question

Within SafeGuard RemovableMedia the tool SGPortable is available in order to decrypt encrypted files on machines that have no Utimaco Products installed.

As per default SGPortable is only copied to a device in case that a file is encrypted. Is it possible to configure SafeGuard Removable Media to copy the SGPortable to every device that is attached to the system?

Answer

Yes it is possible to configure SafeGuard Removable Media to copy the portable tool despite of any encryption action.

In order to do so please change the below mentioned registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Utimaco\SafeGuard RemovableMedia

Set the value 'CopyPortable' to '3'

After that the SGPortable will be copied to every USB device that is attached to that machine. There is no possibility to differentiate between certain devices then.
