Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"BitLocker is completely stable.""There's a lot of manageability within the solution. This is very helpful.""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.""The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform.""The hard drive encryption is very good.""The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""The solution works the way it's supposed to - stability and scalability are fine."

"The features that are the most used by the customers and partners are, at the moment, for GDPR, so obviously data encryption and data reduction. Our customers also like the partitioning option.""The most valuable feature is the data encryption option for columns and tables."

Cons
"The solution should offer encryption for other items such as shared folders, removable media, etc.""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.""It is not good for cross-compatibility, so our Mac users are not able to use it.""The people at the first level of support refer you to articles that do not pertain to the problem at hand.""Lacks a portal that can be managed rather than just existing.""The visualization could be better.""At the end of it all, we are looking for something that can be easier to manage.""I would like to be able to encrypt our cloud tenancy."

"It is really constrained as an environment because you cannot change something that would be useful. It is a very good product because it is very similar to what you have on-premises. Yes, it is constrained, but it is expected because it is a platform as a service so it has to be constrained.""Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of this solution is bundled in with part of the subscription for the Microsoft Cloud. We have users subscribed to Enterprise E5 and it comes with E5"
  • "The price of this solution should be more competitive."
  • "BitLocker is included in our license and doesn't cost us anything extra."
  • "It is free. It is enabled as part of the operating system. Once you have an operating system license, you're licensed for Bitlocker."
  • "I don't know the costs. In terms of Microsoft licensing, we are at E3 on the business, and we're in the process of pricing out and moving to E5. So, a lot of this is included within our licensing agreements."

    Overview

    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.

    Oracle Advanced Security provides data encryption and strong authentication services to the Oracle database, safeguarding sensitive data against unauthorized access from the network and the operating system. It also protects against theft, loss, and improper decommissioning of storage media and database backups.
