13.3 Creating a Disk Encryption Policy

Both the encryption of a device’s disks and the use of ZENworks Pre-boot Authentication (optional) are controlled through the Disk Encryption policy.

Watch a video that demonstrates how to create a Disk Encryption policy.

To create a Disk Encryption policy:

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click Policies to display the Policies page.

  2. In the Policies panel, click New > Policy to launch the Create New Policy Wizard.

  3. On the Select Platform page, select Windows, then click Next.

  4. On the Select Policy Category page, select Windows Full Disk Encryption Policies, then click Next.

  5. On the Select Policy Type page, select Disk Encryption Policy, then click Next.

  6. On the Define Details page, enter a name for the policy and select the folder in which to place the policy.

    The name must be unique among all other policies located in the selected folder.

  7. Configure the policy specific settings, then click Next until you reach the Summary page.

    For information about a policy’s settings, click Help > Current Page in ZENworks Control Center.

  8. On the Summary page, review the information to make sure it is correct. If it is incorrect, click the Back button to revisit the appropriate wizard page and make changes. If it is correct, select either of the following options (if desired), then click Finish.

    • Create as Sandbox: Select this option to create the policy as a sandbox version. The sandbox version is isolated from users and devices until you publish it. For example, you can assign it to users and devices, but it is applied only after you publish it.

    • Define Additional Properties: Select this option to display the policy’s property pages. These pages let you modify policy settings and assign the policy to users and devices.
