Re: Full Disk - Media encryption

We have been using MS Bitlocker since 2010 on all laptops. Recently added use for thumb drives (on a request-only 
basis). Keys are stored within AD, easily retrieved.  Issues occur at times with malware and viruses, but have not had 
many issues related to the encryption process itself or key retrieval.   Most users are completely unaware of the 
encryption.  We are working toward MBAM (console management) and would really like extending it to portable storage 
devices.

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone is using TrueCrypt to encrypt their laptops with FDE?  If so, how are you handling password 
management if a user forgets their password?  Are you storing the these passwords in a secure location where 
administrators can retrieve them if needed?  

Thanks,
Chris

UNM Hospitals has encrypted all laptops with McAfee MEE FDE. So I have a number of other units in the HSC.
Just upgraded to McAfee EPO and are looking forward to encrypting workstations with the autoboot component of the new 
version.

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.
