I see no point in naming softwares, when there are no requirements named :-)
->Are your systems GPT based or MBR
->Are they equipped with a TPM?
->Do you trust your own employees?

These 3 questions are very important when choosing such a software.

THank you.

NO, i have a small company, and we have  a cloud solution (Armor). our servers our 2012 windows. THey are equipped with TPM. I m not sure if I have GPT or MBR.

We want to protect ourselves with encryption at rest from other technical users from our cloud provider and other breaches.

Let's revisit these 3 questions.
1 GPT/MBR - Win10 and Win8.1 use GPT by default, while win7 uses MBR. If you have win10/win8.1, then many encryptors will not work for you, including the popular freewares disk cryptor, veracrypt and truecrypt.
2 They have TPM modules? That's very fine. Then we can skip answering Q3 because with a TPM in place, you can protect against certain attack scenarios where employees use their own password to unlock the disk in order to manipulate it offline.

So please answer 1. What OS' do you use/plan to use in the near future?

Sorry, I must have been blind, this is about server OS', you wrote. So on server OS', GPT would have been the standard for windows server 2012 and higher. If I remember correctly, 2008 R2 was still MBR.
[Edit: corrected GPT to MBR]

So... it's been a day. Could you answer that question about your current/future server OS' so that we can carry on, please?
