This article describes how to change the password for Sophos Update Manager (SUM) in Sophos Enterprise Console (SEC).
Applies from the following product: Enterprise Console 4.7.0

For Enterprise console the tool is downloaded and extracted with the installer and is located in the C:\sec_XX\tools\ folder (where XX is the version of console). For example: in Enterprise Console 5.0 the tool is located at: C:\sec_50\tools\ObfuscationUtil.exe

C:\Program Files\Sophos\Enterprise Console\
