Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (DDPE)

For file level encryption Credant is not a bad solution. However, they were recently bought by Dell so it remains to be seen what they do with the software.

McAfee Complete Data Protection

I would recommend this program ideally more for larger organizations, but that is not to say you couldn't use it for personal use. I think it's ideal for an organization because of all the features it has in one program. It provides all the protection you'd need in a corporation, especially for ones dealing with sensitive company/personal/financial information. Administrators are also able to set specific settings for users so the company can tailor security restrictions as needed

Cons

Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (DDPE)

  • Syntax used to create policies is confusing and prone to redundant encryption.
  • Management console is now based on Silverlight and is slow and gives errors.
  • Full disk encryption caused lots of errors for us, could only be corrected by dropping a text file onto the C drive.

McAfee Complete Data Protection

  • I wish it would give better reasoning why some sites or downloads are blocked, this can be frustrating to have happen if what you are trying to download is from someone/thing you know is a trusted source
  • Sometimes the program messes up the formatting of some webpages I'm trying to visit
  • Drive encryption can be a bit slow to load at times

Alternatives Considered

Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (DDPE)

We switched to McAfee Endpoint Encryption, which provides full-disk encryption. We saw fewer issues with McAfee Endpoint Encryption full-disk encryption than Credant full-disk encryption.
