Table 1. What's New in Endpoint Encryption 6.0

Features / Enhancements


Support for UEFI firmware

Endpoint Encryption now supports booting on endpoints with UEFI firmware.

Improved drive performance using AES-XTS encryption mode

For new installations, Endpoint Encryption uses the AES-XTS method by default. However, existing agents upgraded to this version will retain the existing AES-CBC encryption mode. Moreover, Endpoint Encryption can manage endpoints where both AES-XTS and AES-CBC encryption modes are used.

Support for systems with more than one physical drive

Endpoint Encryption encrypts all fixed drives during installation. Additionally, users have the option of manually encrypting any fixed drives attached after installation.

Wi-Fi preboot policies

Wi-Fi settings can be further customized via new policies available in PolicyServer. These policy settings allow or restrict access to the Wi-Fi settings during preboot.

Preboot screen customization

PolicyServer now supports customization of the preboot screen.

Encryption of used disk space for Full Disk Encryption

Full Disk Encryption will only encrypt the used disk space, resulting in a faster encryption process.

Safety check

Endpoint Encryption runs a safety check after installation to verify if the installation was successfully completed. If successful, Endpoint Encryption loads the preboot screen and starts encrypting. However, if the installation was unsuccessful, (or a force shut down is detected), Endpoint Encryption will not load the preboot screen.

Multiple Active Directory Domain Synchronization to PolicyServer

Endpoint Encryption supports synchronization of multiple Active Directory domains to PolicyServer

Installation enhancements for Encryption Management for Microsoft Bitlocker

Encryption Management for Microsoft BitLocker successfully installs even if Microsoft BitLocker is installed and enabled. In previous versions, the installer stops if MicrosoftBitLocker is installed and enabled.
