Full Disk Encryption Software for Windows 8 (x86 and x64) ?

Hi, Are there any reputable and reasonably-priced Whole Disk/Full Disk Encryption software programs available for Windows 8 Basic version (both x86 and x64) ? Apparently PGP/Symantec and TrueCrypt do not yet support Windows 8.  Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise come with Windows Bitlocker, but there is a need for full disk encryption on Windows 8 (basic/standard) computers.

TIA,

Ok, tested truecrypt 7.1a on win8 pro x64 in VMware (no secure boot, no uefi) - whole disk encrypted without problems.

Any Anytime Upgrade to 8 Pro may be cheaper than the cost of full-disk encryption software ...

I am pretty sure that truecrypt will support win8 right now, as long as you don't install win8 with the option "secure boot". Read of people that have successfully encrypted 8 with TC.

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

Thanks All - We will try TrueCrypt this week. Also, is the Anytime Upgrade available on Windows 8 ?  I was not at all familiar with that option, but when I do a Google Search it only shows it for Windows 7 ...

It works the same way as Anytime Upgrade, but you do it from Add Windows Features ... enter a Product Key, wait 5-10 minutes, reboot, then you are running Windows 8 Pro.
