I'm interested in learning more about it.

Paul and others,

We are preparing to roll out HDLock from Authenex. It requires the
use of both a USB token and a password. Once you are authenticated
the non-Windows O/S portions of the disk are decrypted. We are also
running their key escrow server to allow us to recover in the event
either factor is lost/forgotten or the laptop returns without the
person it was issued to. Let me know if you want more details.

Hello Steve,

Good question.  This technology seems to be evolving, still.  We are
currently looking into the available solutions, also.  I'll be sure to let
you know what we decide.

We're interested in using two factor authentication for the whole disk
encryption.  So, I would like to hear if anyone else who responds is doing
that, as well.

I also just wanted to mention the product we think looks promising
and has been recommended to us:  SafeGuard from Utimaco.  Anyone with
experience using that?
