Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""The initial setup is very simple.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the protection and ease of use.""I liked the way it works with our Microsoft tools. As we roll out Intune, we can validate if the device has been encrypted, and if not, we can push it down. It is pretty simple to deploy.""The hard drive encryption is very good.""As a Microsoft shop, we find this product easy to use.""BitLocker is completely stable."

"Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption has good performance and is secure.""Encryption is the basic feature, and that is what I like about it. I also like that it is kind of easy to install and easy to configure.""We're very satisfied with Trend Micro support.""The solution enables all the development and technical team members to work from home while, at the same time, ensuring the security of the work environment."

Cons
"User profiles can be improved so that people can create their own passwords. It has one password per machine, which is a problem. We would prefer each user to have his or her own boot password. Each user can have a username and password or biometrics, such as fingerprints and iris scanner, integrated into the boot process, but I really can't see that coming anytime soon, if ever.""The pricing should be improved.""At the end of it all, we are looking for something that can be easier to manage.""Technical support has not been very good.""The reporting in Microsoft is very minimal.""The initial setup is complex.""Some of the technical internal functions, such as encryption protocols or something similar, could be improved.""It is not good for cross-compatibility, so our Mac users are not able to use it."

"We would like to see a wider, better dashboard for the purposes of monitoring the users of the Trend Micro software.""I would like to see more integration. Good cloud-based solutions need to be arrayed. I'd like to see better integration with administrative tools as well as Active Directory integration.""In the next release, it would be better if it was more user-friendly. It is a little complicated for the average technical person. If they can make it more user-friendly, it would be much easier and more helpful.""We had to use an integrator for the implementation of Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption. We have two people who work on this solution."

    Overview

    BitLocker is a full disk encryption solution that protects your data from theft, hacking, and loss. BitLocker achieves this by encrypting the entire drive that hosts your operating system and all your data. BitLocker can work on all operating systems, drives, or devices, including portable storage devices.

    After BitLocker completes the data encryption, it generates a recovery key. Only those with the correct encryption key will be able to decrypt and access the encrypted files and information. Attempts to access secured data on premises or over the network will be met with either authentication prompts or error messages saying the data cannot be accessed.

    BitLocker provides its users with peace of mind by improving security and reducing risks of critical data loss and intrusions.

    Benefits of Microsoft BitLocker

    • Comprehensive data protection: BitLocker encryption provides increased security for data throughout its lifecycle, which starts with the creation and storage of the data and ends with its removal. Encryption prevents important data from being accidentally revealed or stolen. When data is encrypted, stealing data is more difficult, and hackers are often discouraged from instigating a cyberattack.

    • BitLocker is free with Microsoft Windows: Microsoft BitLocker is free to use and very easy to set up.

    • Good performance: BitLocker does not make the computer slow down or freeze when in use. You are free to work on other processes with BitLocker running in the background. BitLocker’s interface is very intuitive and the process of encrypting and decrypting data is straightforward and fast.

    • Prevent unauthorized data modification: BitLocker helps to keep your computing environment safe from any unauthorized changes. BitLocker regularly inspects your boot settings every time your PC is turned on. When BitLocker notices that modifications have been made to your boot environment, it forces the PC to enter recovery mode.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Microsoft BitLocker stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its powerful encryption capabilities and its user-friendly user interface.

    An ICT operations and security manager notes, “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.”

    Kevin C., a director at Pathfinder, writes, “Theease 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.”

    Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption, a full disk, file encryption and data protection that ensures data privacy by encrypting data stored on your endpoints - including PCs, Macintoshes, DVDs, and USB drives, which can easily be lost or stolen.
