Hi,

We are looking at the product from www.voltage.com, it has a very nice way for people to recover from lost passwords that 
doesn't require a managed
environment.  It's not cheep, but it solves one of our biggest worries.

Thanks,
Joel Rosenblatt

We are looking at CompuSec from CE-Infosys. It seems to support all the
items on our checklist, installation is simple, and the only change for
the user is the login. It will require pre-boot login and give the user
the option to log in locally or connect to the domain when Windows
boots.

It didn't see where dual-boot is supported in the documentation. That is
a bit item for me, but not for the organization. The price is right, for
a small number of laptops and no centralized key management required.

After I run a couple live CDs against our victim machine to verify the
configuration, encryption and other items, I'll look into testing on a
dual-boot.

So far as our needs at the CIS, it looks promising. I'm skeptical on the
support for dual boot since the package does some voodoo on the boot
sector.

Try looking into Compusec from CE-Infosys
(http://www.ce-infosys.com/english/downloads/free_compusec/index.html)

There is a free and a paid (Using tokens) version(s), as well as windows
and some Linux distros, allowing dual booting.

Might be worth a look anyway.

Hello All,

We are looking into a few different pieces of software for laptop
encryption and were wondering what everyone were using or had success
with.  A few
products we were looking at were Truecrypt and Cyberangel.   Cyberangel
being more robust seems to be the logical choice,  but we were just
seeing if anyone was using anything else.  Also looking for the
Cyberangel equivalent for Macs.

Thanks,
