Encryption algorithm level options

Hey folks, I'm pretty sure I can guess the answer to this but I wanted to ask just to be sure.
Currently the Drive Encryption software defaults to the AES-256-CBC algorithm.
We have been having discussions with some overseas people that do not allow encrypted laptops without a permit.  I am sure you know who I am referring to.

Anyway, they do not allow any higher than 56 bit encryption, of course we know why, but I just thought I would ask if McAfee even has the option to go lower than AES-256-CBC.

My guess is NO since that would severely lower the integrity of the product.
