It is a Microsoft product so it falls in line with our organization which primarily uses MS products. By using a BitLocker server we are using automatic unlock of the drives. When on our network, the first step a workstation takes is powering on and then calling for the unlock credentials to unlock the drive. This happens quickly allowing all of our machines to be encrypted without using an "easy" password the end-user has to enter.

It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.

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.

The hard drive encryption is very good.

The ease of use is the most valuable feature. The ability to import data to build your frontend on top of the data is very simple and very useable.

The most important aspect of this solution is that if your laptop gets stolen, the information is encrypted.

We have not seen any bugs or glitches, so the stability is good.

The solution works the way it's supposed to - stability and scalability are fine.

There's a lot of manageability within the solution. This is very helpful.

The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform.

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's strengthens the solution for us.

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.
