Windows 7 – Bit Locker to Go (Encrypt your USB drives)


Data protection is a massive concern for everyone, we have seen the horror stories of people losing laptops with sensitive data on. Also consider how much data is transferred using USB memory sticks or portable USB hard drives, and how easy it is to misplace one of those. With Windows 7 not only can you protect the data stored on the local hard drive, by encrypting it with Bitlocker, but you can also lockdown USB drives simply within a few seconds. Be aware though Bit Locker is only available in the enterprise and ultimate editions of Windows 7.
