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?
