Why don't you have a look at Fox IT Control 

The part of the software dedicated to workstation control allows you to encrypt part of the file systems using a group 
or a personal encryption key so that you can have different roles with different keys (accounting people, technicians, 
help desk etc..) and a user-personal encrypted folders at the same time. With group encryption keys only members of the 
specific group can have access to the docs in the encrypted folders, and that's good I think (e.g. tech people don't 
need to know your ridicolous salary ;) ). You can even have encrypted share folders (e.g. on a file server) and all 
docs are encrypted/decrypted on-fly on the end point (so they "travel" encrypted on you LAN).You can manage all the 
groups/keys quite easily from a centralized server and you don't need to be a high-encryption-skilled guy actually. 

I installed it few times on customers site when the software was RSA-then-TFS branded and the finally bought it. 

Hope this helps

Hello all,

I need to implement hard disk encryption in my enterprise and hence have been evaluating safegaurd Easy 4.31 and 

I have tested various facets (Encryption, management, installation, data recovery, etc) of both the tools and both 
appear to be equally good.

Since i do not have much knowledge of hard disk encryption, i wanted to know which tool is more effective and easy to 
manage.Or infact any other good hard disk encryption tool in your knowledge. I want to implement the tool in client 
server architecture for easy management.

 would appreciate some comments.
