Alternatives Considered

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.

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.
