What did the full disk encryption do to your boot times?  We're running Symantec Endpoint Encryption, and the 
management on the laptops is great - but the only real complaint that anyone has is the reeeeeeally long boot 
times....we've tried to trim them down, but - to little or no avail....

Just curious.....

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

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

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.
