Product Update : What's New in McAfee File & Removable Media Protection v4.3

Version 3

    Note: File & Removable Media Protection (FRP) was previously known as Endpoint Encryption for Files & Folders (EEFF).

    File & Removable Media Protection v4.3 is currently scheduled to release in Q2 2014.

     

    • Large file support for Removable Media

    Files of size > 4 GB are now supported on USB devices encrypted with “Allow/Enforce Encryption with offsite access (formerly EERM) ” options. So you can now copy large VM images or backup large .pst files to a USB device in a secure manner.

    If you are an existing customer, here is a bonus : the container format is automatically upgraded when the device is inserted on to a v4.3 client, so you don’t need to format/reinitialize your existing encrypted devices !

     

    • Mac OS X offsite application for Removable Media

    You can now view/edit/copy files to and from encrypted USB devices on Mac OS X clients using the offsite application. This support is for USB devices encrypted with “Allow/Enforce Encryption with offsite access (formerly EERM)” options.

    If you are an existing customer, here is an additional bonus : the Mac offsite application is automatically added when the device is inserted on to a v4.3 client, so you don’t need to format/reinitialize your existing encrypted devices !

     

    • Support for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update

    Extend ePO managed McAfee File & Removable Media Protection capabilities to endpoints running Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update

     

    • Support for Citrix XenDesktop environment

    Extend your data protection capabilities to VDI environments as well. McAfee now offers support for selected modes of Citrix XenDesktop versions 5.6 and 7.1. More information on the supported modes/versions will be available soon. If you require support for additional platforms in a VDI environment, please raise a Product Enhancement Request here at : https://mcafee.acceptondemand.com/

     

    • Block Write Operations functionality

    An additional “Protection Level” option is now available as part of the “Removable Media” policy for USB devices. This option will restrict the USB devices to a “read-only” mode. This protection level option is already available for CD/DVDs

     

    • Support for 3 TB devices

    Do you have large USB devices in your organization, and you want to ensure that data is copied to those devices securely ? You can do so using McAfee’s Removable Media Protection functionality.
