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.""We have not seen any bugs or glitches, so the stability is good.""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.""It's a straightforward solution for encryption.""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 hard drive encryption is very good.""The most valuable feature is the simplicity and integration with the Microsoft Clouds platform.""BitLocker is completely stable."

Cons
"The biggest one for us is revoking access. So, even though someone downloads something to a device, we want the ability to cloak that device or data and bring it back or make that data unusable for that person. Currently, BitLocker doesn't give us that ability. It basically encrypts it. We're seeing if identity management or IAM allows us to do that. We're kind of looking at third-party software that does that for us.""At the end of it all, we are looking for something that can be easier to manage.""The console GUI could be better.""The people at the first level of support refer you to articles that do not pertain to the problem at hand.""The solution should offer encryption for other items such as shared folders, removable media, etc.""It is not good for cross-compatibility, so our Mac users are not able to use it.""It's possible that the time it takes to pull items in to BitLocker could be reduced a bit.""I would like to be able to encrypt our cloud tenancy."

"There have been some users who have been complaining about the interface being unfriendly and when the application software is installed on their phone making their mobile slow.""There is always room for improvement in security.""Sometimes, when generating random numbers to our mobile feed the random number doesn't work. We mainly deal with QR codes because of this. If they could fix the random number generator that would be helpful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of this solution is bundled in with part of the subscription for the Microsoft Cloud. We have users subscribed to Enterprise E5 and it comes with E5"
  • "The price of this solution should be more competitive."
  • "BitLocker is included in our license and doesn't cost us anything extra."
  • "It is free. It is enabled as part of the operating system. Once you have an operating system license, you're licensed for Bitlocker."
  • "I don't know the costs. In terms of Microsoft licensing, we are at E3 on the business, and we're in the process of pricing out and moving to E5. So, a lot of this is included within our licensing agreements."
  • More Microsoft BitLocker Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Each license costs about $10/year. It's fairly inexpensive because it's a new product. In Pakistan, no more than two or three companies can apply for mobile protection right now. I don't know if there are ancillary costs above the standard licensing fee."
  • "We have a license that we renew yearly."

    Overview

    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.

    Trend Micro Mobile Security Solutions includes Trend Micro Mobile Security for Android and Trend Micro Mobile Security for iOS devices that provide advanced comprehensive protection against ransonware, identity theft, phishing scams, fraudulent websites, etc and safeguards your privacy on Facebook and Twitter. It also includes Trend Micro Password Manager software that helps to securely store all passwords and sensitive information, to access them when needed on PCs, Macs, and mobile phones and tablets.
