What do you think of Microsoft BitLocker?

Understanding your responsibilities for disaster recovery at a departmental level can be difficult; IT departments are holistic entities. We deal with systems, people, security, servers and infrastructure... but we also need to think about things at a granular level so we can ready ourselves for when a terrible system failure occurs - it always will. My problem was that we needed to ensure we had a very basic form of disaster recovery for our staff who were planning an event that gave us the biggest turnover of our year.

Yes, we could have used cloud storage but the staff needed full portability and access with or without the internet. Not to make...

What is Microsoft BitLocker?

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.
