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

Pros
The Remote Administrator is the most valuable feature that ESET offers for us. Centralized management of our ESET environment is what I like about the Remote Administrator.

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 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.The product is stable.It is easy to implement and has AD integration.

Cons
I would like more robust reporting as part of the Remote Administrator.

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.If the encryption was faster then it would make the experience more pleasant.The encryption takes a long time to complete, and our system runs very slowly while it is encrypting.More customization options would have been nice, such as password selection, actions when the screen is locked, etc.

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.

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.This solution is included with Microsoft Server and my clients did not have to pay for anything extra.It is a totally free solution.

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.
