Interesting - I wonder how they're handling the encryption keys?  Is it in the hardware, or is there something you have to manage in the OS?

No thanks I will stick with the SSD's I use as it looks like:
 
“The Pro 2500 Series is a perfect companion to our data protection solutions, managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, all working in concert to provide IT departments with data security, management and control, wherever their endpoints may be.”

Well I saw the "M" word then scrolled down the page and saw your reply Baldrick and I agree, maybe we should declare this topic as being a contaminated zone 😉
I feel the same though with a lot of those BIG security suites like McAfee and Norton.

But seriously I just cannot understand the rationale with continuing to use such a devalued brand. :S

The trouble is, people see the name McAfee and immediately think it is one of the best, which came about because they along with Norton cornered the market for AV's in many of the shops over here for so long.

No thanks. I don't want anything to do with the M word.
