The system needs to have a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip to support
BitLocker.  I think most new systems come with it.

Steve,

Vista has the capability of full drive encryption. Have you considered
that option? That may involve fast forwarding migration to the new OS.

Hello,
We are looking into whole hard drive encryption products.  We've
narrowed it down to Pointsec and Guardian Edge. Anyone have experience
with either of these or both?  Are you aware of any issues related to
supportability that a buyer should be aware of?
