Make all shares read only outbreak protection

I am migrating to McAfee Endpoint Protection from Trnd Micro and our parent company has a requirement to be able to make all shares on a server read only if there is an outbreak.  Trend Micro had a setting called "outbreak prevention" where you could implement it quickly if an issue arises.  This would happen immediately when set.  I am having an issue finding where this could be configured or done.

Any help is appreciated, thank you,

Re: Make all shares read only outbreak protection


try "Endpoint Security Threat Prevention > Access Protection" policy rules "Remotely accessing local files or folders" (deny read/write) and "Remotely creating or modifying files or folders" (deny write)
