Simply put, BitLocker needs a management solution to be more effective for most businesses.
But that doesn’t mean that you need to trade off manageability for security.
While some larger enterprises are willing to accept the task of licensing, managing or maintaining Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM), InTune, SCCM or even Active Directory management, most businesses don’t need or want such a heavy solution. In fact, most organizations have small IT teams, or teams that are already stretched in terms of resources or budgetary limitations. WinMagic’s lightweight BitLocker management solution, BitMana, was designed specifically to address the smaller IT team.
Being ‘lightweight’ doesn’t mean that BitMana offers barebones value. Quite the contrary. In fact, it’s packed with great benefits:
