Microsoft BitLocker Valuable Features
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 hard drive is removed from the computer then the data is still encrypted, and even a USB key can be protected by using this solution. This makes my customers very happy.
This solution is not cost-effective and it is easy to implement.
It is very easy to deploy BitLocker on machines that are running Microsoft Windows Server 2012 because it can be done automatically.View full review »
It is easy to use. It is usually easy to recover someone's privacy. The manageability is much easier than McAfee. I think that Microsoft is a leader in this area. We are in the Microsoft school so our judgment of McAfee will be a little bit unfair as we recommend Microsoft all the time because of the easy manageability and support. I think that McAfee is designed for a different customer and every time we open a ticket with their support, it takes a very, very long time. The main difference is just the manageability and support. In terms of the solution itself or the functionality, I know that McAfee is very strong, but manageability and support, for us, is much more important. It strengthens the solution for us.View full review »
Manager - ICT at a insurance company with 51-200 employees
We were using the solution due to the fact that it was free with the machines that have Windows 10. As an organization, we were not paying money to have it. If you have Windows 10 you don't have to worry about paying at all.
It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.View full review »

It is free and native to the OS. We don't have to worry about upgrades or maintaining the product. You encrypt the disk, and you save the recovery key. That's it. The person puts their password in, and after that, it is up to them. If they forget their password, they have to bring it in to get it unlocked.View full review »

The disk encryption is the most valuable aspect of the solution for our organization. It's the only feature we really use.
