This tough, behind-the-scenes security tool encrypts hard drives on University-owned Windows systems (Mac systems coming soon!) to protect data in the event of loss or theft. With BitLocker, campus users can work anywhere securely.

  • Encrypts your operating system and data. Protects against offline information harvesting due to hacking, loss or theft.
  • Works behind-the-scenes. BitLocker encryption runs in the background while you work, with no operating system impact or performance slow down.
  • Helpful encryption recovery. BitLocker can recover information stored on the N: or U: drives.
  • Self-service unlock ability. BitLocker engaged? Regain system access directly, or assisted by the IRT Service Desk.
