We were told a year ago by McAfee that there would be a version of EPO 6.x that would support stand alone (never connecting to the enterprise) Endpoint Encryption. Is this ever going to happen? If so, any dates?
It's one of the features being considered for sure, but unfortunately, the whole "EPO world" is based on connectivity. All the concepts of central management, auditing, policy update etc revolve around being at least occasionaly connected.
What's your use case - do you really have no connectivity, ever? Not even occasional internet connectivity?
