Choose your data source type


When choosing any data source type that is not on-premises, you need to think of the safety of the data at rest and during transport. we strongly recommend that you further encrypt your data by applying a Master key for file-based solutions, or a Security Provider for Advanced Data Sources. This will ensure that the data will be unreadable by no one but you.


Upon first launch, Remote Desktop Manager for Mac uses an SQLite data source. The data sources are elaborated further in Data Sources Overview, but to help in choosing the data source that is right for your requirements please see Choosing your data source (Individuals).

Select your Security Provider

Select your security provider before importing or creating any data in your database; doing so ensure the protection of your entry configuration data, even when people have a direct access to your database.

Setup your Devolutions Online Backup

The Online Backup allows you to securely backup your information for the following data sources: Devolutions Online Drive, SQLite, XML or Microsoft Access. The backup is automatically executed 30 seconds after any modifications are made to the data source content. It is a best practice to always back up your data source. If using another type of data source, please consult our Backup Best Practices topic to use the best solution for your chosen data source.
