"The initial setup is easy."
"They have Disc Encryption, Anti-Malware, and a VPN Blade which is beneficial for us."
"The solution provides complete security for one's workstation."
"The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform."
"The hard drive encryption is very good."
"There's a lot of manageability within the solution. This is very helpful."
"The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted."
"It is free and native to the OS. We don't have to worry about upgrades or maintaining the product. You encrypt the disk, and you save the recovery key. That's it. The person puts their password in, and after that, it is up to them. If they forget their password, they have to bring it in to get it unlocked."
"It's a straightforward solution for encryption."
"The ease of use is the most valuable feature. The ability to import data to build your frontend on top of the data is very simple and very useable."
"I liked the way it works with our Microsoft tools. As we roll out Intune, we can validate if the device has been encrypted, and if not, we can push it down. It is pretty simple to deploy."
"You do need to be careful that you don't mess too much with the endpoint, or you might have issues with the work stations."
"The response time for technical support could be faster."
"While the solution works as it should, it is overly expensive."
"The solution should offer encryption for other items such as shared folders, removable media, etc."
"It's possible that the time it takes to pull items in to BitLocker could be reduced a bit."
"The biggest one for us is revoking access. So, even though someone downloads something to a device, we want the ability to cloak that device or data and bring it back or make that data unusable for that person. Currently, BitLocker doesn't give us that ability. It basically encrypts it. We're seeing if identity management or IAM allows us to do that. We're kind of looking at third-party software that does that for us."
"I would like to be able to encrypt our cloud tenancy."
"User profiles can be improved so that people can create their own passwords. It has one password per machine, which is a problem. We would prefer each user to have his or her own boot password. Each user can have a username and password or biometrics, such as fingerprints and iris scanner, integrated into the boot process, but I really can't see that coming anytime soon, if ever."
"I would recommend BitLocker only because of the economic side, not the technical side. If the features were included in the already existing licenses I would use it. If not, I would recommend other products."
"At the end of it all, we are looking for something that can be easier to manage."
"The visualization could be better."

BitLocker is Microsoft's full disk encryption solution, which protects all of your data from theft, hacking or loss. BitLocker does this by encrypting the entire drive that hosts your Windows operating system and all your data.
BitLocker is available for all devices, including portable storage devices (such as external hard drives and USB flash drives). These portable devices are supported by a feature called BitLocker To Go, which is included in Windows 7 and 8, and in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. In Windows XP, encrypted devices can be read, but not written to, using the BitLocker To Go Reader program.
