We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

"The product is stable.""The most valuable feature is the TPM (Trusted Platform Module), which makes the PC security stronger because somebody who is not from the team cannot access the PC without the decryption PIN.""It is easy to use. It is usually easy to recover someone's privacy. The manageability is much easier than McAfee. I think that Microsoft is a leader in this area. We are in the Microsoft school so our judgment of McAfee will be a little bit unfair as we recommend Microsoft all the time because of the easy manageability and support. I think that McAfee is designed for a different customer and every time we open a ticket with their support, it takes a very, very long time. The main difference is just the manageability and support. In terms of the solution itself or the functionality, I know that McAfee is very strong, but manageability and support, for us, is much more important. It's strengthens the solution for us.""The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform.""There's a lot of manageability within the solution. This is very helpful.""We have not seen any bugs or glitches, so the stability is good.""The solution works the way it's supposed to - stability and scalability are fine.""The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted."

Cons
"I would like more robust reporting as part of the Remote Administrator.""Integration with central management needs improvement.""Sometimes the server console is very slow, so the performance could be improved.""I would like to see better compatibility with mobile devices."

"The encryption takes a long time to complete, and our system runs very slowly while it is encrypting.""If the encryption was faster then it would make the experience more pleasant.""If integration with Active Directory are not mandatory for him, I think that there are many other solutions in the market that equal or are much stronger than Microsoft.""I would like to be able to encrypt our cloud tenancy.""The solution should offer encryption for other items such as shared folders, removable media, etc.""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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Instead of installing ESET on each machine at each location, we just do it remotely. This has been a time saver for us.""The National University System dedicates 500 of their 5000 licenses to us, which is $14/yr per device. Most companies are paying $99 or $120 per device a year.""Licensing costs are on a yearly basis."

"This solution is included with Microsoft Server and my clients did not have to pay for anything extra.""It's not about pricing, because we are working with Enterprise companies that already have Windows Enterprise, so BitLocker comes already included as a Windows feature. It's free for Enterprise users. The price is only for deployment. The customer will pay for McAfee, however.""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."

Overview

ESET Endpoint Encryption is a simple-to-use encryption application for companies large and small. Take advantage of the optimized setup that speeds up the time to adoption for admins. The client side requires no user interaction, increasing user compliance and the security of your company data.

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.
