McAfee Endpoint Encryption (formerly Safeboot) is a full disk and content encryption product.It is designed to encrypt files and folders on a your company laptop in order to ensure thatrestricted and sensitive data are protected against unauthorized access. McAfee EndpointEncryption is particularly useful for helping to safeguard laptops containing sensitiveinformation in the event they are lost or stolen.In simple terms, the McAfee Endpoint Encryption client takes control of a hard disk awayfrom the operating system. McAfee Endpoint Encryption encrypts data written to the disk,and decrypts data read from the disk. If the hard disk drive is read directly, one would findonly encrypted data, even in the Windows swap file and temporary file areas.
