The TestTrack Server, Surround SCM Server, and Seapine License Server are all typically installed behind one or more corporate firewalls, which protect your data from the outside world. If that's not the case for you, or you simply need another layer of security, you should enable encryption on server-to-server and client-to-server communications to better protect your data. Following is a brief overview of how to enable encryption for each of the servers. Read the Seapine product documentation for a more thorough explanation.
