Consider using self-encrypting hard drives to improve performance and boot time.

Thanks,

We have been using SecureDoc from WinMagic.  (Despite the name it does support Macs)  (the solution was waaay less 
expensive than the competitors and it included a file and folder encryption as well as full disk encryption as part of 
the core price)

As with your solution, boot times are bad, it takes several minutes to get the machine up and running.  But once the 
core drivers are all decrypted and everything's up and running, we have no operational performance issues

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.....

Thanks,

Michael

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.
