We have recently set up EEFF and are using the removable media section to encryption USB sticks. All is working fine on the machines with the EEFF agent installed. However we want to be able to share the data with other machines (that do not have the EEFF agent installed). When a memory stick with encrypted data on it is inserted into a 3rd party machine windows explorer does not show up any data but you can see that that space has been taken up on the drive.
I have picked this up again after a few months due to some incopatability issues we had with out internal systems. I seem to remember that previously when a USB drive was inserted into a non EEFF machine there would be an executable file you could run which allowed you to enter the password and access the data...
Have I missed a tickbox somewhere or something like that??
There are a few things you can do.
1. use the "auto create self extractor"
2. use the new feature EERM (endpoint encryption for removable media)
these are both explained in the lastest release documentation eeff v3.2.2
If you are using EERM then this is just a policy setting, change the setting for that user to use EERM instead of standard removable media encryption. this will then create the container on the stick, and the user can then read the data on any PC by entering a single password
The policy is applied to the user..... I can tell as when the device is initiallized it says that it is protected by EERM.
It's just not creating the .exe to make the data available to a non EEFF user.
