Full disk encryption with BitLocker

Full disk encryption with BitLocker builds on the BitLocker Drive Encryption technology included in your operating system. It encrypts the entire hard disk, so that your data is safe even if the computer is lost or stolen.

When you log on to your endpoint, you have to enter user credentials to unlock BitLocker. For more information, see Encrypt a computer with BitLocker.

Sophos SafeGuard allows you to manage BitLocker on endpoints with one of the following operating systems:
  • Windows 7 Enterprise / Ultimate
  • Windows 8/8.1 Professional / Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Professional / Enterprise

On Windows 7 (BIOS) endpoints, you can alternatively use SafeGuard Full Disk Encryption with SafeGuard Power-on Authentication, see Full disk encryption with SafeGuard Power-on Authentication.
