Windows 7 Pro HD encryption


I have in our office about 15 Windows 7 pro laptops that needs to have their HD encrypted. I don't have any Enterprise version nor either Windows 7 Ultimate.

Apart from DiskCryptor and TruthCrypt which is a free version. Can you tell what is the best HD encryption for Windows 7 that we can paid? Of course a good brand and price?

Asking for "the best" would mean we already know your needs so we could fulfill them.
For example you name freewares, but they don't seem to be your choice - what are they missing?

Then, with the windows 10 upgrade for free at hand, you would have bitlocker for free if you only decided to upgrade.

Lastly, let us know if you are trying to secure the devices against offline attacks driven by your own conpany's users or not, because that would only be possible with very few products.

I don'k want to upgrade for Windows 10 because it still too new as an OS. I don't like to have Truecrypt or Diskcrypt as an option, it is free and i don't want it. My question is if you know a software that does HD encryption for Windows 7 pro and will be happy to pay for it and better, when it comes with a group licensing package.
Sorry for the late response, am on vacation, mostly no internet access.
You didn't answer my last question, it would help.

You could use what we used before switching to bitlocker: Symantec desktop encryption. It has many useful features, but it cannot keep user that have the password from decrypting. Therefore, you would need software that uses two factor authentication or supports TPM chips if your machines have those.
