Before you begin

  • Learn what's new in the release.
  • Verify that the version of Security Center currently running in your system is compatible with the SDS Guardian plugin 3.1 . If the version of Security Center is not compatible, upgrade to a supported version.

What you should know

  • The plugin needs to be upgraded on all Security Center client and server computers.
  • It is not required to uninstall the plugin before upgrading to the new version.
  • When you install the latest plugin, the plugin database is automatically updated, and all entities and historical data is preserved.


  1. On the computer you are upgrading, close all instances of Config Tool and Security Desk
  2. Download and install the SDS Guardian plugin as described in Downloading and installing the SDS Guardian plugin.
  3. After the plugin is upgraded, confirm that the upgrade was successful by doing the following:
