Software update: Symantec Encryption Management Server 3.4.2 MP2




Software update: Symantec Encryption Desktop 10.4.2 MP2
Symantec has in the past taken over two different companies that developed encryption software, namely GuardianEdge and PGP. The software of these two acquisitions was released by Symantec for a long time as two different encryption product lines, the GuardianEdge line was renamed to Endpoint Encryption, and the PGP line was renamed Encryption Desktop together with Encryption Management Server. For an outsider it is confusing that one company released two different encryption products that competed with each other and could not cooperate with each other. The endpoint of Encryption 11 in 2014 has largely come to an end. Since there is no easy way to upgrade from SED and SEMS to SEE , maintenance packs are still being released for the old PGP line. The developers have released Symantec Encryption Desktop 10.4.2 MP2 with the following changes:

Resolved issues – Windows
