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.

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?
