Security Officer Role

The Security Officer role is the highest ranking role. Users with this role have access to a wider range of features in Endpoint Cloud than other users, and so you need to take care when assigning this role.

Security Officers are the only users who can:

  • Download and register the AD connector. This is needed to allow your Endpoint Cloud to protect your devices and data.
  • Allow access to encrypted data, which is needed for restoring a user's data.

Your Endpoint Cloud has to have at least one user with the Security Officer role.

To check if your user account has the Security Officer role:

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Click Administrators.


  3. Look for your user account in the list and see if you have the Security Officer role.

Only users with the Security Officer role can change the role of a user account.
