Jetico Central Manager gathers information about using BestCrypt Container Encryption software on client computers. Administrator of Jetico Central Manager becomes informed when some problems arise on the computers with the software. Besides, using BestCrypt Container Encryption becomes safer with Jetico Central Manager support because administrator can provide the user with access to the data inside encrypted containers in emergency cases.

When a user creates or mounts a container, BestCrypt Container Encryption saves encryption key for the container in Jetico Central Manager Database. The database stores the key in encrypted form so that only administrator can manage the key.

The password administrator enters in the dialog window is called Network password, because when later the user (or administrator) enters this password to mount container file on client computer, BestCrypt Container Encryption software on the computer will send request to Jetico Central Manager Database over network. If correct network password is entered, BestCrypt Container Encryption on client computer will be able to decrypt response from Jetico Central Manager Database and use decrypted key to mount the container file.
If administrator does not need the Network Password for the container anymore, he/she should select the container in BestCrypt Container Encryption tab and click Remove Network Password for selected container option and click .. Then in the Network password dialog window he/she should choose
Jetico Central Manager removes information about container file when the user deletes the file from BestCrypt Control Panel on his/her computer. There are also other ways to delete the files without running BestCrypt Container Encryption, for example, by formatting drive with the files.

Program will warn Administrator about removing all information about the container file from the database and if he/she confirms the operation, the information about the container file will be erased from the database.
