The University of Cincinnati is also looking into whole disk encryption.
Based on some responses previously received, I think we have narrowed
our investigation to Safeguard Easy and Pointsec. However, I should just
mention that, even though it may be a more expensive option, we really
like PGP, too.

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?
