Data Encryption Server and Workstation Best Practices

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a client that is using Microsoft Server SBS2003 and XP Pro workstations.  This client is a financial client and they want to encrypt all the information  on their server.  Their big concern is if some one walks off with their server.  I think that Microsoft has some encryption built in but do not know the pros and cons.  

I am looking for advice on the best way to secure this operation.  It might even mean an upgrade in the OS and that would be ok.  Not sure of just where to start and could really use some experts advise.
