Likelihood to Recommend

BitLocker

It is well suited especially for users that access or store sensitive/confidential data on their computers. In the case of where users are accessing confidential data over the network, it is highly recommended to use Bitlocker to encrypt the computer. In the case where users are storing confidential data on their computer, it should be a requirement that BitLocker is used/enabled.It would be less appropriate if someone was using a computer and they were not dealing with any sensitive data, or in cases where the computer is used for recreational purposes (browsing the web, playing games, etc).

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

If you're looking for basic signature-based anti-virus at a reasonable price, F-Secure Protection for Business could be a good choice. It does a good job for anti-virus but doesn't include the more advanced features of more expensive products like intrusion detection, forensics, and protection of zero day exploits. It may work well in combination with other tools.

Pros

BitLocker

  • On my customer's machines, it's convenient that BitLocker can be set up to automatically open an encrypted volume so that my customer doesn't have to enter the passphrase every time they log in.
  • BitLocker is compatible with NTFS and ReFS which gives you options for your storage.
  • There doesn't really appear to be any performance penalty for encrypted volumes, so it is a seamless experience.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • Anti-virus (classic signature-based). This is a classic anti-virus tool without some of the fancy bells and whistles of more expensive products.
  • Real-time protection. The product can do filesystem scheduled scans as well as real-time analysis of files.
  • Browser protection. It comes with a decent browser plugin that can block access to malicious sites.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • It does not provide "next gen" features like zero day protection, forensics, intrusion detection and analysis.
  • The management interface is clunky and difficult to use.
  • Real-time protection and firewall services can interfere with legitimate activities at times and make it difficult to troubleshoot.

Support Rating

BitLocker

BitLocker 7.9
Based on 3 answers
I give it a nine because encryption always leaves room for improvement, and it must change as security threats evolve and improve, and having an ever-evolving system is essential.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

F-Secure stacks up very well against competitors like McAfee and Norton. Cost is very reasonable, performance is great, and it does as good (or better) a job of these more well-known products. F-Secure particularly works well for non-profits looking to negotiate for a more reasonable rate.

Return on Investment

BitLocker

  • Protects against data loss and theft, which can be very expensive if PII, SPI, PHI is involved. Fines for this type of loss can be very high, along with the costs of notification, and discovery.
  • Cost is included in Windows O/S, without needing additional licensing costs.
Richard Russell | TrustRadius Reviewer

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • Positive - very generous discounts for non-profits make this inexpensive compared to other products.
  • F-Secure has caught some (but not all) malware incidents on our workstations, which have saved us time and money.
  • The cost/benefit ratio is very high. For what you're getting, this is a reasonably priced product.
