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).

McAfee MDP

The program really excels at basic mobile protection against malware and viruses. It offers some unique features as its anti-theft application that can help keep mobile devices from being used by unauthorized users. It works well when providing basic security for mobile devices out in the field or in remote work situations. However, it companies may need more extensive or additional security applications to ensure adequate protection

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.

Cons

BitLocker

  • Even if it's the best we tested, I think write performance could be improved. Maybe with dedicated hardware inside the TPM?
  • No integration with OS password is a shame as most others have it and it is Microsoft on Microsoft so they can probably do it better then anyone else and safer.
  • I wish they would support multiple passwords like FileVault on macOS. If it's a shared computer, you have to give the only password to Bitlocker to both users.

McAfee MDP

  • The program could use some improvement in its setup and installation process.
  • Another area needing improvement could be its interactive interface.
  • Perhaps a learning tutorial or guide could be added to the application.

BitLocker 7.7
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.

Alternatives Considered

BitLocker

There is not much alternative to Bitlocker, you may want to try self-encrypted disk, but for a business perspective, it is not as easy as Bitlocker to manage. Self-encrypted may be faster, but recovering data for a system administrator is a disaster.There was more alternative before, but Bitlocker now dominate the market.

McAfee MDP

McAfee Mobile Data Protection offers basic security measures for mobile computing devices without a high cost or extensive training. However, it also may lack some needed features such as data encryption utilized by other products. While its interface is not perfect, it is easier to learn than more feature robust products on the market.

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.

McAfee MDP

  • McAfee Mobile Data Protection provides a fairly easy and low cost security measure for providing basic to medium security for mobile devices. While not perfect, it does it basic job fairly well.
  • The program may require a bit of a learning curve for some end users with its interface and installation processes. This may require some additional training or support.
  • The program lacks some of the more advanced data protection abilities found in other competitor products. The result may be a need for additional security applications.
