Is there a way to check to see if a networked machine is encrypted.

I was asked to see if there was a tool, process, or anyway we can ensure all networked machines are encrypted with bitlocker.
Anything would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

Sorry, for the add on, we also need to check to see which devices are currently using bitlocker.

Rning this command to get Bitlocker status from powershell. First step however is to get the AD module.
Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Open in new window

Manage-Bde -Status c:

Open in new window

Additionally, if you want to do the entire network at once just pipe that through Get-ADComputer like so... (this will search all of AD)
Get-ADComputer | Manage-Bde -Status c:

Open in new window

Let me know how this works for you, it's late and my powershell is getting erroneous as the night progresses.

Wants a filter parameter and when I use the * it only runs on the local machine. Looking at more filter options but thought that would give me all in AD but it did not.

Try piping it the other way so that it's checking the status and you're sending the get-adcomputer into the request for bitlocker status. Let me know what that does for you. I would test it on our network but we don't use bitlocker. :/
