Mr.Gains gave kudos to speakerbox in ESET File Security Version 8 Release?
We're currently reviewing our server protection, we have around 150 on a mix of ESET File Security 7.0 and 7.1 (Windows only) which according to the EOL page is in support (Limited for 7.0, Full for 7.1).
With ESET Endpoint AV V8 being released for clients is there any rough estimated date/quarter/year on when the next major version for File Security will be released?
I've noticed 7.3 released for ESET File Security last month (EOL page not updated to show that?) but we're reviewing whether we should upgrade all our 7.0/7.1 servers to 7.3 or wait for V8. It be months of work to go to 7.3 only for V8 be released and have to do it all again so be good to know!
Mr.Gains gave kudos to Rendekovic in EFDE Monitoring
you are right, reports are in the works currently.
we are panning to offer reporting (more or less) in this scope:
Computers not eligible for encryption Computers eligible for encryption EFDE not installed Computers eligible for encryption. EFDE installed AND disk not encrypted Computers with encryption in progress Computers encrypted Computers encrypted using TPM chip Computers encrypted using OPAL 2.0 Computers encrypted via FileVault2 (future) Computers with boot disk only encrypted Computers with all disks encrypted Computers recovered in past month... What exactly would you like to see in the reports? Except for "password uses left" you mentioned above...
Thank you for your inputs

Mr.Gains received kudos from MichalJ in EFDE Policy
In the EFDE policy we have total recovery password uses, and the recovery password reset when it reaches a number of uses left. The issue I see with this is that the user can reuse the same recovery password until they reach the auto-generate new password in policy, could we have this to where it could generate a new password after a number of use? For example in policy there's 20 recovery password uses, and it'll auto-generate a new recovery after every 2 recovery password used, and it'll warn the user when there's 4 total recovery password uses available before recovery data needs to be done. Another thing in entering incorrect password at the EFDE login screen, sometimes I get more attempts than I'm allowed and/or system reboot after 3 times. I'm thinking there's a bug in the password attempts, but it would nice for users to see how many more attempts until the current password is disabled.
