Microsoft BitLocker Primary Use Case

Information Technology Specialist at Calculus system

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.

We encrypt devices and disks that have the potential to be taken off-site, such as laptops, tablets, USB sticks, and USB disks. Basically, we encrypt any medium that has to be taken off-site. If we're giving out a USB stick to somebody, it is BitLocker encrypted. If somebody has to use a memory stick, the only way it gets out is if it is encrypted. 

We use the version that is native to an operating system.

The primary use case of this solution is to encrypt all of our laptops. If they are ever lost then they are useless to anybody, unless they have the key. 

Our keys are stored in our Active Directory, making it impossible for anyone to decrypt what we have in our devices.

BitLocker is a feature of which enables hard drive encryption. It's similar to Symantec Endpoint Encryption. For us, both go hand-in-hand, however, BitLocker has an advantage in that it stores the key in TPM.

We use the solution ncrypt any agency data . We probably have about 3,800 users on 5,000 plus computers and there are a variety of roles with some people doing data entry all the way through to system administrators. We're a statewide agency. We'll probably increase usage in another few years when we have more computers. I work as the Desktop Operations Manager in the company and we're a customer of Microsoft.

We provide services for our clients but not for BitLocker specifically. We are a local MSP partner, so we sell different solutions but we also manage existing customers and the products they use. Our clients' primary use case is for endpoint protection.
