McAfee Encryption Query

I have query regarding McAfee Encryption, After encrypting the Removable drive we are able to access the drive from a endpoint where encryption agent is not available,
Using autorun we can launch the McAfee password prompt and provide the password to access the drive.
Is it possible through policy to stop that access, I mean if endpoint device doesn't have agent, We should not gate any prompt to provide the password & access the drive ?

Re: McAfee Encryption Query

Hi @Hutait ,

Thank you for posting in here.

Your requirement is possible with McAfee FRP, however you have used Enforce Encryption with Offsite access in your Removable Media FRP policy. If you use FRP policy with Offsite access, whether you have FRP in the other machine or not you can enter the password and use the device.

For your requirement you need to set the FRP policy to "enforce encryption with onsite access only", by this setting FRP will use the FRP keys to encrypt your removable media and you cannot use the pen drive on other machines which does not have FRP or which does not have the FRP key.
