Microsoft BitLocker Review

Securely encrypts our data, but the process is too slow

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to encrypt the data on three hard drives.

What needs improvement?

The following areas need improvement:

  • The encryption takes a long time to complete, and our system runs very slowly while it is encrypting.
  • If you lose the data, or it becomes corrupted, then there is no backup for it. There is no way of recovering it.
  • There are no clear guidelines for using this product.
  • Technical support for this solution is poor.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial / evaluation period (six months).

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

There is no technical support that assists with understanding BitLocker.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used different solutions, personally, but that was while I was at my previous company.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution is straightforward. We needed to change the group policy setting.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the installation myself.

We have two people working on the maintenance of the solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this product a five out of ten.
