SafeGuard Enterprise decommission guide
This document describes how to decommission SafeGuard Enterprise. It also explains how to access encrypted files and devices you discover after decommission.
We strongly recommend you contact Sophos Professional Services to see how they can help you decommission or migrate SafeGuard Enterprise successfully.
We'll retire SafeGuard Enterprise on July 20, 2023.
After that date, the following happens:
- We won't release any updates or security hotfixes for SafeGuard Enterprise.
- We won't provide any support or maintenance for SafeGuard Enterprise.
- Subscription-based SafeGuard licenses stop functioning.
- Perpetual SafeGuard licenses continue to function.
We recommend the following migration paths:
For SafeGuard Enterprise Device Encryption, migrate to Sophos Central Device Encryption.
For SafeGuard Enterprise File Encryption, migrate to the third-party product conpal LAN Crypt.
See the conpal LAN Crypt website.
You can use Sophos Central Device Encryption and conpal LAN Crypt in combination.
If you don't want to migrate, follow the information in this document to remove SafeGuard Enterprise from your Windows computers and Macs and decrypt all media.
