After the installation you can see the new File Encryption Engine in the Installed Updates section of Programs and Features.
As this package just contains new filter drivers and no other products components, this update does not change the the version or build number of the installed SafeGuard Client. In future versions of the product it is planned to add visibility regarding the version of the file filter engine in the SafeGuard Management Center.
