McAfee to support faster encryption based on Intel AES-NI technology
McAfee released Endpoint Encryption for PC 6.0, offering full-disk encryption and access control to prevent data loss, especially from lost or stolen devices. The product delivers protection for all endpoints in one integrated solution, centrally managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO).
McAfee Endpoint Encryption will be the first encryption technology to support the upcoming Intel 32-nm Westmere microprocessors that adds AES-NI technology.
McAfee Endpoint Encryption 6.0 features:
- Support for ePO 4.5 provides actionable reporting to take immediate action directly from a report to perform tasks on targeted systems or resolve issues
- A common management agent and single console for data protection and endpoint security products enables lower administrative overhead
- Support for mixed encryption environments – enabling organizations to maintain a single policy and management infrastructure for the entire environment, regardless of if it is software or hardware based encryption
- Single policy for multiple platforms – enabling organizations to reduce the complexity of managing multiple policies for the same task.
