EEFF/FRP v4.1 Patch 1 introduced the ability to securely share information via ISO container files with third parties (partners, customers etc.) who may not necessary have McAfee Encryption technology deployed. The sharing vector could be USB devices, CD/DVDs, ftp or even cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive etc.


The process is extremely simple and consists of just a few steps:

  1. Configuring FRP to allow creation of secure ISO containers (one time step)
  2. Selecting the files/folders that you want to package in the secure ISO container (this selection can be saved as a .emo project for re-use)
  3. Specifying the password (authentication credentials) for access, and creating the container

It is also possible to load a previously saved .emo project and create a new ISO from a specific data set, for instance if that dataset has been amended.

 

The ISO container so created contains the offsite application MfeEERM.exe through which you can access the encrypted content even on a machine without any McAfee software installed. So you all have to do is to just the mount the ISO (which is extremely simple) and supply the right authentication credentials to access the encrypted content.
