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).

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.

Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption

  • Works well in shared use environment where laptops may be used by multiple people. The bypass pre-boot feature eliminates the need for the device to be registered against multiple users.
  • Ability to remote lock or remote wipe laptops.
  • Centrally managed policy deployment.

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.

  • No ability for clients to update software from the server. Software updates require third party software distribution.
  • Policy creation, when integrated with Control Manager, is only accessible by the creator of the policy. Other administrators cannot add devices to the policy.

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.

We previously used PGP Desktop Encryption. Our main reason for switching was the bypass pre-boot feature in Mobile Armor. We have a lot of shared devices and having to register every user to the device did not work well.

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.

  • Mobile Armor was packaged in a suite of products, making it a less expensive option.
  • Deployment of Mobile Armor has contributed to regulatory compliance requirements.
