Does anyone know of any full disk encryption products for windows PCs and servers which would allow an RMM tool to reboot the PC without having to enter the boot encryption password?

If you use Windows Bitlocker together with a TPM chip you can encrypt your harddisk but you don't have to enter a password when booting (although you can configure it to ask for one).

That's a fantastic solution, with the licensing approach of server 2008 (and R2) there is no additional fee for this on the server either! For the Windows 7 users there is a one time fee for the upgrade, for the non-windows 7 users (we don't use vista) then they could purchase the symantec option.

If anyone else has any input please post away!
