Wave for BitLocker Management - Version upgrade Product Details
When Microsoft introduced Windows 7 - its most cutting edge OS to date - the company also ushered in a new version of BitLocker, the industry's most advanced software-based full-disk encryption (FDE) solution.BitLocker outperforms add-on, third-party FDE software solutions in two ways. First, it takes advantage of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) - a security chip embedded in virtually all PCs available today - for strong key protection and system integrity verification. Second, its tight integration with Windows 7, Ultimate and Enterprise editions, puts less strain on a computer's operating resources than third-party software solutions.In addition, because Microsoft BitLocker eliminates the need to purchase and deploy additional FDE client software, it offers a good entry point for cost-conscious enterprises looking to secure network endpoints.Yet, despite all these benefits, BitLocker lacks one vital feature: an intuitive, centralized management platform to activate, manage and monitor BitLocker clients across the enterprise.Organizations that wish to leverage Windows 7 FDE features on a broad scale need to write and maintain their own custom scripts. This costs both time and money and could explain why less than 5% of BitLocker-capable clients actually use the software today.Wave for BitLocker Management bridges the gaps in BitLocker's value to the enterprise - providing a turn-key solution for intuitive, centralized management of BitLocker clients across the enterprise.
