I’m pretty psyched to see McAfee releasing its latest Device Control version that supports Mac OS X Lion, OS X Mountain Lion, and OS X Mavericks. This makes McAfee one of the first enterprise DLP vendors to offer removable media data protection on Mac OS X.
The software is a plug-in for McAfee Agent for Mac, which will be installed on client computers prior to deploying McAfee DLP Endpoint and Device Control software. Removable storage device rules are supported using device definitions supporting universal properties such as USB, as well as Mac OS X-specific properties. The removable storage device definitions now can support Mac OS X-only, Microsoft Windows -only, or both.
Forcepoint DLP Endpoint helps you safely adopt new cloud services such as Office 365 or Box Enterprise with both web threat defenses and the ability to retain control of sensitive data. Users on Mac OS X and Windows, on or off the network, working anytime, anywhere, receive the full benefit of advanced threat defenses and DLP. McAfee DLP Endpoint for Mac prevents unauthorized use of removable devices and provides protection for sensitive content on endpoints and network shares. McAfee DLP Endpoint inspects enterprise users’ actions on sensitive content on their computers.
On the local machine if you look at the EPDA.exe file located in the DLP Endpoint Agent installation folder (under Program Files Manufacturer Endpoint Agent) you should be able to check the version by opening the properties of that file and viewing the details tab. Open a Terminal window and run the command below.
The best part is that this new feature is offered to current McAfee DLP Endpoint or McAfee Device Control customers at no additional cost!
Before you begin, verify that:
• You have installed McAfee Agent (MA) for Mac version 4.6 Patch 3 or later on all Mac endpoint computers
• Mac OS X versions are the supported versions: OS X Lion 10.7.5 or later, OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.0 or later, or OS X Mavericks 10.9.0 Asus turbov evo auto tuning turbov download windows 10 7.
