We're currently doing a POC with Checkpoint's FDE product right now.  So
far, the test results have been very positive.

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?

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.
