I`ve got some questions about supporting firefox in DLP endpoint 9.2.
1. In DLP product guide says: "The web post protection rule is supported for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and later, and Firefox 3.6,4.0, and 5.0. For other browsers, use network communication protection rules." - What about FF 6.0 and 7.0? Do they officialy supported by Endpoint DLP 9.2?
2. Integration into FF realized by installation plugin. So everibody can disable this plugin (user dont have to be local admin) and send confidentional information thru webmail without any control. Am I right or I can prevent disabling dlp endpoint plugin in FF?

The release notes state the product supports firefox 3.6 > 7
Haven`t testet yet to see if it can be easily disabled.
Unfortunately, I'd have to think that this will forever be a losing battle to keep up with the web browsers, especially if people in your environment have local admin authority to install Firefox, chrome, or the browser of the year. Open source web browsers are always going to evolve much faster than a lumbering giant like McAfee can evolve their plugins, and even if you have tight administrative control over your environment, you'd be cutting off your nose to spite your face to keep a vulnerable version of Firefox active just because it remains compatible with HDLP.
NDLP Prevent + an SSL middling web gateway of some sort (McAfee's or any other vendor's ICAP supporting http gateway) + strong egress filtering that forces people through that gateway are going to remain the most reliable means of browser-agnostic control of POST's.Message was edited by: Regis clarified which NDLP product works with web gateways (Prevent) on 3/16/12 8:38:39 AM CDT
With FF releasing a new version every 6-8 weeks it's impossible to support the lastest version. I'm surprised that software companies are not dumping support for FF.
