Key Escrow Management

Key Escrow Management is used to set up one or more key escrow users.

The StoredSafe appliance can be configured with several key escrow users. The key escrow user/s can be used in an emergency situation to recover otherwise lost data. The use of key escrow is entirely optional and completely up to each customers discretion and policy.

Key escrow might be needed in several situations, such as:

  • A user forgets his login passphrase
  • A user with sole access to some information leaves the company
