Getting Started with PolicyServer MMC

The PolicyServer Microsoft Management Console plug-in (PolicyServer MMC) is the native management console for Endpoint Encryption policy, user, and device administration.

  • Remote device actions, including killing a device, erasing data, or delaying authentication

  • Event logs about authentication events, management events, device encryption status, and security violations

  • Remote Help password reset process

  • Auditing and reporting options

Before configuring PolicyServer MMC to manage PolicyServer, make sure to install and configure PolicyServer services and databases.
