"The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform."
"The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted."
"It's a straightforward solution for encryption."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"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 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."
"BitLocker is completely stable."
"The solution is reliable and stable. You can edit it and it's flexible."
"The people at the first level of support refer you to articles that do not pertain to the problem at hand."
"It's possible that the time it takes to pull items in to BitLocker could be reduced a bit."
"It is not good for cross-compatibility, so our Mac users are not able to use it."
"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."
"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 like to be able to encrypt our cloud tenancy."
"The console GUI could be better."
"Lacks a portal that can be managed rather than just existing."
"The solution really needs to improve the data pile. With the pile, if we could also do a column-level encryption or something like third-level encryptions that would be great. It would be a slight variation of same product."

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.
