of a data breach was $6.3 million.3

Attain maximum data security with full-disk encryption

The protection of data assets is a primary issue facing today’s organizations. Protect your company’s mission-critical data with McAfee Endpoint Encryption. The solution uses strong access control with preboot authentication and government certified algorithms to encrypt data on endpoint devices, including desktops, laptops, Tablet PCs, smartphones, and PDAs.
Encryption and decryption are transparent to the user and performed “on-the-fly,” with virtually no performance degradation. McAfee Endpoint Encryption seamlessly integrates with existing enterprise systems and provides operational efficiency that ensures low total-cost-of-ownership.

Protect files and folders wherever they go

Control what files or folders are encrypted. McAfee Endpoint Encryption allows administrators to specify that the contents of certain folders, files created by particular applications, or files of a certain type be encrypted. Groups of users are granted access rights to particular files and folders, and securely share files across the network.

No matter where files are saved and transferred, data remains encrypted using Persistent Encryption Technology™. If an unauthorized user tries to save a file that is viewable on a company laptop to an
unapproved storage device, that user will walk away with an encrypted and unreadable file.

Achieve compliance and lower TCO

Prevent loss of data wherever your data goes and achieve regulatory compliance with a full range of security and encryption solutions all managed from one central console. McAfee Endpoint Encryption provides central management capabilities including administration, central deployment, remote upgrades, auditing, mandatory security policy management, a scripting tool, hot revocation, recovery, synchronization, and more. Extensive auditing capabilities prove the device was encrypted at the time of loss or theft, demonstrating compliance.

Mandatory security policies can be transparently enforced by administrators. McAfee Endpoint Encryption lso supports single sign-on and secure offline user recovery.
