What computer encyrption software do you use and why?
Posted on 2011-09-29
Anyone ever frustrated you can't search google for unbiased software reviews? The results almost always come back with websites that have a financial incentive to give a particular product a positive review. They look like trustworthy reviews but you quickly see ads, referral links, fake blogs, etc.
So I'm asking here:
My company has tasked me with looking into rolling out encyrption software for the workstations and laptops. Initially it may just be a few people, but if it gains traction it could be more widespread (by which I mean up to 50).
The first person to get it will be the CEO, who just had his car broken into and his laptop stolen. I've been telling them for years they need more protection. I'm going to start preaching the use of Keypass or some other password encryption software at a minimum so they don't keep password anywhere. The only program I've heard of is TrueCrypt and symantec's product. I'm leary of TrueCrypt because we're a small business and we want the ability to call support for any issues.
Please give a brief reason why and what typical costs can be expected if you don't mind.
This is for Windows XP, Vista, and 7.
