I upgraded my PGP to the latest version to support Vista – working well – even the GroupWise C3PO works reasonably.

I took the plunge and did the Whole Disk Encryption for my laptop. Wow. 60GB of data encrypted in 3 hours. Now I get the PGP WDE sign on at boot, I use my home Active Directory password and I get single-sign-on into Vista. Very well implemented.

Now I’m less worried about travelling with my laptop and confidential data. BIOS password and physical security are part of the solution; but crypto for the whole disk is important.

It’s also a lot easier than the Vista Bitlocker. It works with 2000, XP and Vista – and does not require TPM on the workstation. My T42p works flawlessly so far.
