McAfee has changed its support stance regarding network shares. In the past, McAfee assumed we supported all network shares because the transparent design of Encryption for Files and Folders (EEFF) 3.x on the endpoint using the Mini-Filter design. Thus, the product team announced that all File Servers, except Novell, were supported.

As a result, only Windows Server Enterprise version 2003 SP2 and Windows Server Enterprise 2008 SP2 are officially supported with EEFF 3.x.

Support for additional platforms will be added in due time and will be announced accordingly as we continue rigorous testing.

However, we are confident that the approach will lead to improvements in EEFF quality.
