BitLocker monitoring – protecting devices & data

by | 22nd August 2022

The Challenge: 

Cyber criminals are always looking for new ways to access your company’s data.

When they gain access to a device, how far would they be able to infiltrate?  Which employees have a business need to access your data?

The Solution: 

In our Think ahead – be secure! article, we said that when setting up your company’s new laptops, you should enable BitLocker as standard. This provides full encryption and data protection to each device.

BitLocker helps to mitigate against unauthorised data access on lost or stolen computers by encrypting all user and system files on your operating system drive.

By fully encrypting your PCs and Drives with BitLocker Drive Encryption, you get to decide who can decrypt and access your files.

As part of our managed solution, we will identify any devices that do not have BitLocker enabled and ensure this is rectified.

The Outcome: 

If your employees lose their company devices or they are stolen, the data is not accessible to a Cyber Criminal.
