Microsoft BitLocker Review

Good for encryption but it's more for big customers with everything in one console

What is our primary use case?

We provide services for our clients but not for BitLocker specifically. We are a local MSP partner, so we sell different solutions but we also manage existing customers and the products they use. Our clients' primary use case is for endpoint protection. 

What is most valuable?

The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Microsoft BitLocker for seven months. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't needed to contact customer support. 

How was the initial setup?

We have our own in-house team for maintenance. 

What other advice do I have?

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.

I would recommend Webroot because it's easier to maintain and report. 

I would rate BitLocker a five out of ten. 

BitLocker is more for big customers with everything in one console. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
