Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We have not seen any bugs or glitches, so the stability is good.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted.""The solution works the way it's supposed to - stability and scalability are fine.""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.""It's a straightforward solution for encryption.""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."

"The most valuable feature is the support for email.""We're very satisfied with Trend Micro support.""Very good interface.""The solution enables all the development and technical team members to work from home while, at the same time, ensuring the security of the work environment.""Overall, I think that it's very interesting."

Cons
"The console GUI could be better.""Lacks a portal that can be managed rather than just existing.""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.""The people at the first level of support refer you to articles that do not pertain to the problem at hand.""At the end of it all, we are looking for something that can be easier to manage.""It is not good for cross-compatibility, so our Mac users are not able to use it.""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."

"I would like to see more integration. Good cloud-based solutions need to be arrayed. I'd like to see better integration with administrative tools as well as Active Directory integration.""In terms of what must be improved, I would say the support, the next feature, and the road map. I think all these must be improved, but the important thing to improve is the support.""We would like to see a wider, better dashboard for the purposes of monitoring the users of the Trend Micro software.""Integration and support could be improved.""It would be great if this solution had support for file integrity monitoring."

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.

    Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption, a full disk, file encryption and data protection that ensures data privacy by encrypting data stored on your endpoints - including PCs, Macintoshes, DVDs, and USB drives, which can easily be lost or stolen. Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption provides the data security with full disk encryption, folder and file encryption, and removable media encryption. It protects data at rest with full disk encryption software, automates data management with self-encrypting hard drives, encrypt data in specific files, shared folders, removable media and set granular policies for device control and data management. A single, well-integrated management console allows to manage the users using the same interface for endpoint protection and other Trend Micro security products. Deploying Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption helps ensure that your data will continue to be protected as your mobile computing devices and organizational needs change.
