What is BitLocker?

BitLocker is a data protection solution integrated into the Windows operating system. This tool aims to ensure the confidentiality of data and reduce the risk in case of loss or theft of workstations.

What does BitLocker provide?

BitLocker provides physical access protection to information stored locally on workstation hard drives by providing the following security features:

> Encryption of the hard disk.

> Protection of access to the disk either by PIN code, or by a cryptographic key integrated into the workstation (TPM), or by external cryptographic key such as a USB key or smart card.

> Locking of the startup sequence in case of a modification detected on the hardware or on the BIOS.

> Centralized management of security requirements and policies for the entire computer fleet

Why is BitLocker an opportunity?

If you don’t have a workstation encryption solution yet, or if your current encryption solution is not satisfactory:

> BitLocker is integrated into the Windows system for free.

> Deployment and management of the tool is done on the existing AD infrastructure.
