We encrypt devices and disks that have the potential to be taken off-site, such as laptops, tablets, USB sticks, and USB disks. Basically, we encrypt any medium that has to be taken off-site. If we're giving out a USB stick to somebody, it is BitLocker encrypted. If somebody has to use a memory stick, the only way it gets out is if it is encrypted. 

We use the version that is native to an operating system.

BitLocker is a feature of which enables hard drive encryption. It's similar to Symantec Endpoint Encryption. For us, both go hand-in-hand, however, BitLocker has an advantage in that it stores the key in TPM.

Product Manager at Axoft Ukraine

All of our hard drives are BitLocker-protected, and we use only protected USB sticks. We have no right to put unprotected USB sticks in our work notebooks, we must install password locks on the device and for notebook usage. I don't have any special knowledge or experience with such encryption, but I know that all of my hard drives are secure.

We use Microsoft BitLocker for security. If I lose my work computer or it is stolen, no one will be able to read the files on my hard drive.

I have a unique password.
