Valued Customers,

I am delighted to announce the release of McAfee Drive Encryption 7.1 Patch 1 (7.1.1).

This release contains several important new product enhancements and a number of defect fixes all of which are detailed in the Release Notes PD25230.

New Enhancement Highlights

  • Support for TPM 1.2 Autoboot on UEFI systems.
  • Preboot Hardware Compatibility Settings (BIOS non Opal systems only). For additional details about this feature please reference the “Hardware Compatibility Settings for Drive Encryption 7.1 Patch 1 KB81900”.
  • Changes to the way user certificates are imported from Active Directory.
  • Support for AMT 9.0 and 9.5 chipsets.
  • Support for the generic SafeSign implementation.
  • Support for Windows 8.1 Update (32- and 64-bit).


This patch is now available from McAfee Downloads Webpage with a valid grant number, via ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software manager and via the McAfee Service Portal.

Best Regards

great news.

About TPM 1.2, is it still restricted to support only Win 8?

Or can TPM be used on Win 7?




I don't understand what does "Changes to the way user certificates are imported from Active Directory." mean.

Could you let me know the details of difference between 7.1.1 and 7.1.0 about it?
