"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.""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."

"The pricing is high for licensing and support and the GUI interface is good but could use updating.""The product uses a lot of resources and because of this it is not always a good solution for every situation.""The solution needs an easier integration in heterogeneous and dynamic environments.""There needs to be support for blocking the sending of files by email because even if you block or remove an external disk, the files are not protected.""The solution needs to be a one-stop protection shop. And yet, the DLP isn't strong. Anyone can break it quite easily.""Technical support doesn't really offer fast response times.""Our client is not very happy with the lack of support, the skills, and the effectiveness of the tool."

"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.""The visualization could be better."

"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.""BitLocker is included in our license and doesn't cost us anything extra.""It is free. It is enabled as part of the operating system. Once you have an operating system license, you're licensed for Bitlocker."

McAfee Total Protection for Data solution suite protects your data using a combination of powerful encryption, access control, and user-behavior monitoring.

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.
