Server Security: Use Pre-Boot Network Authentication

What is Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA)? Pre-boot authentication is the process of validating user login credentials before unlocking contents of the hard drive. For a computer used by users, this means when turning on a computer, the user will immediately be prompted with a request for their username and password (or Token/Smartcard if 2 factor is required) before the computer’s operating system comes on line.
