NOTES:

  • Endpoint Encryption for Removable Media (EERM) is automatically installed with Endpoint Encryption Files and Folders (EEFF) 3.2.0 and later releases.

Suite release version information (EEFF 3.2.0 and earlier)
Documentation Corrections

As Microsoft releases new operating systems or Service Packs, the original McAfee Product Guides might not reflect the current McAfee support policy for those platforms. Most of the following information is available in the Product Installation Guides and Readme.txt files. However, some of the information is available only in Product Management statements published in the McAfee KnowledgeBase.
 
NOTE: With the release of McAfee EEFF 3.2.6 and EEFF 4.0, changes have been made to allow Key Encipherment as a certificate type. This allows a certificate type of either Data Encipherment, Key Encipherment, or both to be used with these versions and later.

IMPORTANT: Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 3.x has been superseded by Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 4.0. To review the supported environments for EEFF 4.0, see KB72735.

NOTE:
Maintenance releases have been introduced since the release of EEFF 3.2.1 From this release, Endpoint Encryption products are developed and released individually, according to their own separate schedule. By splitting the products, McAfee Engineering can issue minor releases to address specific product issues whenever necessary, without impacting other Endpoint Encryption products.

McAfee product software, upgrades, maintenance releases, and documentation are available from the McAfee Downloads site at: http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/downloads.aspx.

NOTE:
 You will need a valid Grant Number for access. KB56057 provides additional information about the McAfee Downloads site, as well as alternate locations for some products.
