Groups

Overview

A TDE group represents a set of users. If a Smartpoint policy containing a specific TDE Group is selected for an agent, the Smartpoint policy only applies to the users within the team.

There are two types of TDE deployments: Single Group Mode and Multi Group Mode. If you do not see the Groups tab, you are using Single Group Mode. PKWARE controls the type of environment; contact PKWARE to use Multi Group Mode. In Multi Group Mode, you begin with a default TDE group; however, you may continue to add TDE groups.

Adding a TDE Group

To add a TDE group in Multi Group Mode:

  1. Select Add TDE Group within the Groups tab.
  2. Select a name for the group.
  3. (Optional) You may assign administrator(s) to the group. If you do not assign an administrator, every user will be able to view the group within their list of TDE groups. Additionally, if no administrator is assigned, every user will be able to view and utilize the TDE agent associated with that group. However, once you choose to assign an administrator to a TDE group, only the listed administrator(s) will be able to view the group or view and utilize the TDE agent associated with that group.

Editing a TDE Group

You may edit a TDE group at any point by selecting Edit next to the name of the group you wish to update. From here you may change the name as well as add or remove administrators. If you remove an administrator from a group, he or she will no longer be able to view the group or utilize its TDE Agent.

Deleting a TDE Group

Before you may delete a TDE group, you must first delete the TDE agent associated with the group. After you have deleted the agent on the Agents tab, you may delete the TDE group by selecting Delete next to the name of the group.
