  4. Under User Management, configure user access.
    Option Description

    All Endpoint Encryption users

    Allow all users, domain and local accounts, to authenticate Endpoint Encryption devices.

    Active Directory users

    Select Enable domain authentication to enable the Active Directory users option.

    To configure domain authentication, see Active Directory Synchronization.
