Introduction

McAfee® File and Removable Media Protection (FRP) delivers policy-enforced, automatic, and transparent encryption of files and folders stored or shared on PCs, file servers, cloud storage services, emails, and removable media such as USB drives, CD/DVDs, and ISO files. FRP provides support for Removable Media initialization for Mac client systems.

FRP is managed by McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) creating a central point of management that makes sure the data is safe wherever it goes.

Typical FRP use cases include encrypting files such as spreadsheets and sensitive documents, allowing access to a specific folder on a shared network, encrypting files being synchronized to cloud storage services, encrypting removable media or blocking the copying of non-encrypted files, and sending self-extracting files in email attachments to partners or clients.
