Can I inherit an encryption from one user to another?

In my company we have many commercials that rotate continuously and it is annoying to have to decrypt a computer every time they leave and re-encrypt it with the new user. Is it possible to inherit this encryption?

We have the last version of EEE in our network.

Best regards

Hi @Mauricio Osorio,

When you FDE a Workstation it will be Encrypted for all of its users even if you add a new Windows user, however, based upon your message I feel you want to understand how to have a new user essentially take over the FDE'd device with the old user no longer being present or able to access the device.

We actually have an article which should be able to help you move a FDE'd Workstation from an old user to a new user without having to decrypt it at all, please see here: http://support.deslock.com/KB287 -

Thank you,
