McAfee Endpoint Encryption
McAfee has been a powerhouse in the antivirus and intrusion prevention markets for years, but it has been gradually expanding its product line of late through acquisitions and organic development. Its McAfee Endpoint Encryption offering (formerly SafeBoot Encryption) has emerged as a leader in the growing market for technologies to help protect sensitive corporate data from theft or loss.
Designed to protect high-value data on laptops and other mobile devices, McAfee Encryption boasts a long list of features, including persistent encryption of files and folders, regardless of where they're moved, support for two- and three-factor pre-boot authentication and single sign-on systems. It also integrates with Active Directory and LDAP and can support PKI deployments.
The McAfee offering received high marks from readers in a number of areas, particularly for its flexible and granular policy controls and its strong central management capabilities. Users also liked the simple and efficient installation and configuration process and praised McAfee for strong service and support.
