McAfee is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Management of Native Encryption (MNE) 2.0. MNE 2.0 allows management of the built-in encryption capability by ePO for Macs that use OS X FileVault for encryption and now adds support to Windows for systems using Microsoft BitLocker for encryption.
Products that MNE is available in now include:
• McAfee Complete Data Protection Suite (CDB)
• McAfee Complete Data Protection – Advanced Suite (CDA)
• McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection – Business Suite (CEB)
Also, since the above Suites are sold on a per node basis, each CDA / CDB / CEB license can provision a Windows PC with either Drive Encryption or MNE 2.0 for BitLocker or a Mac with MNE 2.0. The deployment per node mix is totally up to the customer.
For example; given 100 CDB licenses, a deployed mix could like this: Drive Encryption deployed to 70 Window PCs, MNE deployed to 20 Windows PCs to manage BitLocker, MNE deployed to 10 Apple Macs to manage FileVault, for a total of 100 nodes with CDB.
