Devices

The PEM Administrator offers administrators a view all the devices that have been connected to their PK Protect environment. From this page admins can view the details for each specific device as well as disable it; if it has been lost, stolen or otherwise compromised. Once disabled, the device will not be able to access any of Smartkeys to decrypt, encrypt or redact the data on the device.

The default view will only show 10 devices, but the view can be altered to change the number of devices displayed on the screen.

You can use the search tool to identify the device you wish to view based on the applied filter. To view all devices, click Search button without specifying any data.
