Overall Satisfaction with Credant

Credant was used to encrypt user data on laptops. It was used across the whole organization to protect data in transit.
  • Silent installation/uninstallation. It was very easy to deploy and remove the software remotely.
  • Transparent to users. Users did not see messages from the software or notice performance issues during encryption.
  • File or disk level encryption. Includes the option to do file or full-disk encryption to meet your organization's needs.
  • 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.
  • Created some problems for our helpdesk with full-disk encryption.
  • Allowed us to meet security requirements at a reasonable price.
  • Decent reporting capabilities.
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.
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.
