We have a requirement at my company to support Macs. The machines need to be encrypted and have some sort of way to check in with a management system to verify the encryption status. This can be summarized to encryption and reporting.
Filevault, which is included with OSX will encrypt the drive, but does not hava central reporting system.
Sophos Safeguard has a central reporting system. But we have run into problems encrypting the latest 10.8.5 OS X version. Sophos support has not offered any solutions.
We have considered Sophos Safeguard as an option or using Filevault with a cron job. Neither solution is optimal.
What are other companies doing for Mac encryption and reporting? Is there another third part tool that is more reliable?
