McAfee Drive Encryption

Protect data on endpoints and meet compliance requirements

Full disk encryption to prevent the loss of sensitive data

McAfee Drive Encryption is full disk encryption software that helps protect data on Microsoft Windows tablets, laptops, and desktop PCs to prevent the loss of sensitive data, especially from lost or stolen equipment. It is designed to make all data on a system drive unintelligible to unauthorized persons, which in turn helps meet compliance requirements. McAfee Drive Encryption is compatible with traditional hard drives (spinning media AKA HDD), solid-state drives (SSD), and self-encrypting drives (SED and OPAL).

McAfee Drive Encryption is a software component available in three McAfee data and endpoint protection suites, and is managed through the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management console.
