That's exactly the problem with that solution from our perspective.
We're in no big hurry to get to Vista. We'd rather let other beta test
the come on board after service pack 1.
Plus I like the idea of a third party product for this purpose.

Subject: [SECURITY] pointsec vs. Guardian Edge
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?
