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.

You have to do a bit of reading to understand the logic; however, after that, it becomes pretty straightforward to use it.

Feature-wise we have the ability to encrypt fast. This means when you enforce the policy and when you onboard a device via the Azure AD, it comes online pretty quickly. The speed at which BitLocker engages is pretty strong. That's a significant thing. You can even control your external devices, like your USB devices. You can allow or deny, or even encrypt those devices. There are lots of useful things like that available in this product.

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.

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 the same BitLocker that we use in Sophos. Maybe the feature we like the best is file encryption.

The connectivity is in the cloud, therefore this is a good solution as we have, the real-time status of all machines.

The interface is user-friendly.

The initial setup is very simple.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the protection and ease of use. 

All I have to do is enter my password and create passwords for my USB sticks.

I don't see where any improvements in this software are needed, because I'm not sure what else we can use. The functionality is straightforward.
