What you should know about MIcrosoft’s new BitLocker Management

Encryption can be a bit of a double-edged sword for organizations. It is an effective and essential tool for protecting sensitive data, but it often comes with a healthy side of user confusion and help desk calls. Microsoft hopes to simplify the process of implementing and managing BitLocker data encryption with the launch of Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Management (MBAM) 2.0 Beta 2.

A Windows for Your Business blog post announcing MBAM 2.0 Beta 2 points out that many states have data breach legislation in place, and that the penalties associated with failing to protect data can get quite costly. “I think this proves that the rules and stakes for data security are rapidly changing and there couldn’t be a more important time to ensure your understanding of data breach laws, and protect your corporate and customer data from the ramifications of a potential breach.”

BitLocker encryption has been around in some form or another since the launch of Windows Vista. It is an effective means of protecting data, but can be a major headache to manage—especially for small and medium businesses that generally have fewer dedicated IT resources.

MBAM 2.0 is part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack. The new versions builds on MBAM 1.0 in an effort to streamline provisioning of BitLocker encryption, reduce support calls and costs, simplify management, and improve compliance reporting.
