Désinstaller l'antivirus McAfee sans déchiffrer le poste avec drive Encryptions

Jump to solution

Bonjour a tous et a toutes ,

 

J'ai question par rapport la désinstallation de l'AV McAfee .

Est ce que on peux désinstaller l'antivirus McAfee sans déchiffrer le poste avec drive Encryptions ?

Vu que le Drive Encryptions est Active sur le poste et si on désinstalle McAfee , ça peux poser des problème ?

Comment vous pouvez m'aider ?

 

Merci d'avance

Cordialement

Yes, you can uninstall AV without decrypting Encryption.

Hi,

McAfee AV and Drive Encryption both are two different products. You can uninstall AV without decrypting Drive Encryption. But if you want to uninstall Drive Encryption too, then you have to decrypt the machine and then uninstall.

Bonjour , 

Merci pour votre retour , 

Mais si on désinstalle que Mcafee Agent , normalement il vas demander de désinstaller le Drive Encryptions automatique si non on ne peut pas désinstaller McAfee Agent ?

Si le cas et on peux désinstaller que McAfee sans toucher le Drive Encryptions la clé de chiffrement ça sera changer ou ça reste la même ?

McAfee Agent est une chose et Antivirus en est une autre. Comme l'ont répondu les employés de McAfee, vous pouvez désinstaller Antivirus (Endpoint Security ou VirusScan Enterprise) et le chiffrement du lecteur ne sera pas affecté.

Mais la désinstallation de l'agent ne serait pas souhaitable, à mon avis, si le système restait crypté. L'agent est celui qui connecte le système à l'ePO où sont stockés les utilisateurs et les clés de chiffrement de Drive Encryption.

McAfee Agent is one thing and Antivirus is another. As McAfee employees responded, you can uninstall Antivirus (Endpoint Security or VirusScan Enterprise) and the encryption of the drive will not be affected.

But uninstalling the agent would not be desirable, in my opinion, if the system remained encrypted. The agent is the one that connects the system to the ePO where the Drive Encryption users and encryption keys are stored.

Hi @dimassi,

Thank you for your response. Kindly please do not remove McAfee agent on a machine where Drive Encryption is installed. That is not a recommended practice!

I sincerely hope this answer helps!
