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).

Symantec DLP

Works well for our very limited use cases with over 50K endpoints. Has the proper information and UI required for investigating violations and resolving the cases. Our dictionary of terms to look for in content changes often, but isn't really that big. The system handles us changing the list quite often, but I can't speak to how well the system would work with a very large list - you will want to POC that use case before a purchase.

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.

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.

Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

Alternatives Considered

BitLocker

BitLocker Drive Encryption solution offering is cheaper than the one that McAfee offers, it will help you with specific business concerns like "how many encrypted assets do I have?" it's easy to maintain, easy to deploy, and easy to track. It's best suited for companies that are not trying to go far away on the disk encryption matter

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.

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.

  • Employees know their information is safe.
