We use Checkpoint -- but getting rid of it -- not a very good solution.
As such we have reviewed Symantec (PGP) Sophos and a number of others for FDE, MDE and FFE
Currently doing (2 months now) POC with Dell and WinMagic(SecureDocs)
Be happy to chat with you offline on our experiences thus far.

Subject: Re: [SECURITY] Encryption
We are using Dell Data Protection and Encryption (DDPE), formerly Credant. We selected this product a few years ago
after evaluating various encryption solutions, some of which are mentioned by others on the list. At the time of our
evaluation, DDPE was the only product that worked with a wide variety of hardware models from multiple manufacturers
(typical in our environment), and one of the few that did not require a pre-boot authentication.
Like others have mentioned, you must understand your environment and culture before selecting and deploying your
product, while none of the products are perfect and each has its own strengths, you have to choose the product that
best fits in your environment.

We're on a fast growing campus here at the University of Washington Bothell. We're in the initial stages of exploring
encryption and I was wondering if anyone out there had any thoughts or suggestions on this topic?
So far we're looking at using BitLocker and maybe EFS. We're also looking at Dell's Data Protection Solution.
