Central management for HP ProtectTools
Central Management for HP ProtectTools is developed in partnership with DigitalPersona, and is
available in two configurations: DigitalPersona Pro Enterprise and DigitalPersona Pro W orkgroup.
Central Management allows administrators to create and deploy role based policies, revoke access
and recover users with lost credentials. DigitalPersona Pro Enterprise is designed for small to medium
businesses and enterprises that use Active Directory. It allows administrators to leverage Active
Directory for maximum scalability. Figure 5 shows the key features of HP ProtectTools with
DigitalPersona Pro. DigitalPersona Pro W orkgroup makes central management accessible to smaller
organizations without Active Directory through simplicity of design and deployment, and attractive
per seat cost. DigitalPersona Pro W orkgroup is a self-contained solution with no special server
hardware requirements. It makes security easy to deploy by allowing administrators to create role
based policies and implement them within the workgroup. Security keys are managed centrally and
allow the administrator to recover users with lost credentials. DigitalPersona Pro W orkgroup can be
accessed directly from HP ProtectTools and can be deployed for up to five users with no per seat cost.
