Let me start this off by saying I've already evaluated and have planned to purchase SecureDoc Enterprise from WinMagic. However, due to billing issues (not price) I'm afraid I may not be able to make that purchase so I'm now scrambling to find a replacement product. I've got 7 news laptops coming in about 1.5 weeks and I need to deploy full-disk encryption on them.
I'm looking for something with the following features:
- Allows user to locally reset forgotten encryption password without requiring a rescue disk and without requiring network connectivity. SecureDoc uses security questions or an administrator assisted one-time key.
- Allows user to bypass Windows login by passing domain credentials to pre-boot login.
- Centrally managed and policy based.
It should go without saying that the product should have good security/encryption practices and not require a week of training for the admin or user.
edit: I found out that I can purchase the software through Softchoice rather than having to go direct. It's a little unfortunate that the sales person at WinMagic didn't tell me I could go through a reseller even though he knew I had a billing issue. The issue is that they do not accept American Express and we felt their credit app form asked for too much information.
