Microsoft BitLocker Other Advice

We are using BitLocker for Windows 10 (which depends on TPM 1.2 or greater) being managed by MBAM 2.5 with SQL Server database to store the encryption keys. BitLocker is configured to use Active Directory or SQL to store the encryption keys. When using AD, the keys are stored in an unprotected directory. When using SQL, the stored keys are stored in an encrypted database. I recommend that you study many hours before you start testing. Take the MBAM test at Microsoft's website. Study TPM 1.2 and 2.0. Use SQL to store the encryption keys and not the Active Directory, so you leave the AD free of high processing and add a layer of protection with the encryption of the database. It is important to test on ALL models of computers, there is always a model that will not work. View full review »
