13.4 Assigning the Policy to Devices

After you create a Disk Encryption policy, you need to assign it to devices.

The Disk Encryption policy is a device-only policy. It can be assigned to devices and device folders. It cannot be assigned to device groups, users, user groups, or user folders.

In addition, only the policy closest to the device is applied. For example, if different policies are assigned to a device and to the device’s folder, the policy that is assigned directly to the device is applied.

IMPORTANT:The Disk Encryption policy is not supported on Windows 8 devices. If you assign a Disk Encryption policy to a Windows 8 device, the policy is not applied to the device.

  1. In the Policies panel, select the check box next to the Disk Encryption policy you want to assign.

  2. Click Action > Assign to Device.

  3. Follow the prompts to assign the policy.

    Click the Help button on each wizard page for detailed information about the page.

    When you complete the wizard, the assigned devices are added to the policy’s Relationships page. You can click the policy to view the assignments.
