Overview

McAfee® Management of Native Encryption (MNE) is a management product that allows McAfee® MVISION ePO administrators to manage Apple FileVault and Microsoft BitLocker. These are products that provide full disk encryption on Macintosh (Mac) and Windows systems.

Note: This Product Guide contains information specific to MNE on MVISION ePO. For information about MNE on McAfee ePO, see the documentation for McAfee Management of Native Encryption.

With McAfee Management of Native Encryption you can perform these core functions from a central interface:

  • Manage Apple FileVault and Microsoft BitLocker
  • Report encryption status
  • Import, store, and retrieve recovery keys

Adopting MNE for BitLocker means that you no longer need to license, manage, or maintain Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) or its associated servers. You can consolidate servers and eliminate the related Microsoft licenses, providing significant cost savings and reduced management overhead.

MNE ensures that you have consistent enforcement of policy and compliance across your encryption technology stack. You can also use the report-only feature of MNE without having to actively manage FileVault or BitLocker. MNE provides comprehensive reports that give you complete visibility of your organization's encryption status. Report queries can also be used as a dashboard monitor that is automatically updated every 5 minutes.

Note: We provide support only for the MNE management solution, and not the underlying FileVault or BitLocker encryption technology. If you encounter any issues with FileVault or BitLocker technology, contact Apple for FileVault support and Microsoft for BitLocker support.
