What are Workstation and Group Policy?
When a workstation is being managed by an ESET Endpoint Encryption (EEE) Server policies are available which allow the administrator to control how EEE functions for their users.
There are two separate collections of policies:
Workstation Policy takes effect when the current Windows user is not activated against the EEE Server or they are not currently logged in to the EEE software.
Installing a client install package obtained from the EEE Server will enforce the Workstation Policy from the EEE Server chosen at the time it was downloaded.
Workstation Policy is the baseline of rights and includes settings for how the software will appear and behave.

Group Policy takes effect when an activated user logs in to their Key-file. Generally these settings are used to grant extra rights or features to the users overriding any restrictions set by the Workstation Policy.
By arranging users within teams in the EEE Server interface it is possible to apply different Group Policy settings to different teams of users. This allows you to give extra capabilities to specific teams of users.
