Overall Satisfaction with Pointsec

You would think "no system is 100% secure" when a corporate laptop goes missing and that is a big problem. Pointsec's full disk encryption solution ensures your information isn't exposed.
  • The product works with Windows, Linux, and OS X.
  • The management of Pointsec has really become very simple and centralized for all IT to handle with ease.
  • Preboot encryption keys in the form of a password, by inserting a USB drive containing the key and/or using a one-time password generating device such as an RSA token.
  • Decreasing vulnerability to attack is the key, it's the game to play and Pointsec plays it very well.
  • Key management systems and the various recovery options are very well thought out.
  • Full disk encryption vs. file or folder encryption system. With FDE data is encrypted automatically when it's stored on the hard disk making this the best solution.
Symantec Encryption, a few management points led me to evaluate and not go with it.
Encryption software applies to all industries, the way you have to see the big picture is asking yourself, "How important is our data?".
