A cost-effective solution to protect data from physical theft, but the encryption process is slow

What is our primary use case?

I am a solution provider in Congo and I propose products such as Microsoft BitLocker to my customers. My clients use this solution to protect their data in cases where computers are stolen. In this region, theft of computers from companies is quite common and the data that is stored needs to be protected.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "If the encryption was faster then it would make the experience more pleasant."

What other advice do I have?

The encryption solution was not something that I was really informed about, but I decided to study it and then propose it to my customers. I propose two different deployment models; the cloud and on-premises. The internet connection fees here are expensive, so many people prefer to deploy on-site.

Cost-effective, intuitive GUI and is easy to scale

What is our primary use case?

Most of the time we leave it at the first party level because of its ease of use and they do not need too much knowledge to use it. We offer it within the SMB market because it's not complex like other DLP solutions on the market, like McAfee.

What is most valuable?

The GUI is very intuitive. That is the way I would explain its ease of use. It is straightforward.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention for over a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

As for its stability, it is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I believe it is very easy to scale.…
