Microsoft BitLocker Other Solutions Considered

I am somewhat familiar with other solutions such as those by McAfee, Digital Guardian, and Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption. However, I do not know these products as well as Microsoft BitLocker. Once I obtain certification on some of these other solutions, I will propose them to my clients as well. Digital Guardian is something that I have been reading about lately, and it looks very good.

We are a partner for Microsoft here in Saudi Arabia, and one of our customers is interested in deploying Microsoft BitLocker to secure his computer devices and laptops, to encrypt all his data for hard disks, etc. I am already moving to read some documents and have some comparison between McAfee and BitLocker in order to convince the customer to install Microsoft BitLocker because from our insight we see that Microsoft BitLocker is much better than McAfee. That's why I was in need a document just to have a comparison between McAfee and Microsoft BitLocker. From my point of view, Microsoft is much easier than McAfee. It is easy to deploy and integrate with Active Directory. Then, you have much more integration capabilities than McAfee. Microsoft is stronger and the integration between Microsoft ESP and all other Bit solutions is much better than McAfee. McAfee is a standalone solution right now that will not be efficient for the protection that we are aiming for. We need protection that integrates with all kinds of malware protection solutions. I think that Microsoft BitLocker is much better than McAfee. View full review »

We researched a few websites for comparative encryption, but we didn't want to introduce another vendor. BitLocker satisfied all of the criteria that we had. We don't need any military-grade or any military level or anything beyond those capabilities. View full review »
