Hi Jim,

We used to use CheckPoint but happily moved away from it because of
numerous issues.

We are now using PGP/Symantec encryption, and while not perfect it much
better than our CheckPoint experience.

Looking for any advice and feedback on Vendor Solutions for Full Disk
Encryption  (FDE) and Media Disk encryption (MDE).

We currently use Checkpoint -- however their new version E80.xx does not
support  our Symantec 12.1, 12.2 etc  anti-maleware endpoint solution -- so
we are forced to seek another vendor for our encryption needs.

Checkpoint FDE/MDE was clunky and we have had lots of issues with it , so
this is an opportunity for us.

I just wanted to see what folks have found success with and if there are
any recommendations.

Thank you.
