It would be nice.... and a question

It would be really nice in epo to have an encrypt now, or remove encryption option built in.  This is similar to rogue sensors where on an machine i can  select a machine and select rogue sensors -> Install rogue Sensor or remove rogue sensor.  Being able to quickly deploy or remove encryption would be nice.  I am finding it difficult to transition from the EEM managed encryption to the EPo managed.  Seems like it takes a lot more effort to encrypt a single machine.  It would also be nice if EPO was able to generate an .exe for encryption that included the agent and 6.1 software like it does for the the FRAMEPKG.EXE.  I think transitioning a large group off the old MME to EPO is gonna be quite a task.

Also,  am i correct when you move computers from the old Console to EPO through the utility the password should go with it and not give the user the default password?

In 6.1 the users have to pick a new password when they get EEPC6.1 - password transfer from V5 will come in 6.1.1

Any Idea when 6.1.1 is expected?  I will have to wait until then because 1200 machines and 1500 users would be painful

I just got an update and the 6.1.1 beta will start next week, on May 18th. If all goes well with the beta, then it is planned to get released at the end of June. All dates subject to change

If you would like to participate in the beta, please contact your SE and they'll get you on the list.

Beta was a success and now the 6.1.1 release is scheduled for next Monday, July 11th. So look for it on the download site then.

I don't suppose any McAfee guys want to leak the release notes so we can see what else was fixed 😉 ?
