The seemingly never-ending torrent of high-profile data breaches has encouraged companies to evaluate their security fundamentals. One of which is full-disk encryption (FDE), a security best practice that protects information on servers, laptops and other devices while they are at rest. Many security companies offer encryption solutions, but the management of encryption keys can be challenging with functionality inherent to the encryption technology. Such is the case with Microsoft BitLocker. Fortunately, addressing these challenges are easier than security professionals might think when the proper tools are employed.
