The aim of BitLocker For Automate is to protect computers and drives against data breaches and intrusions. The main benefits are: It encrypts your entire drive, providing a high-level of security using the TPM module and your pin codes, passwords and recovery keys and key filenames are stored in ConnectWise Automate.
Top 5 Reasons for using BitLocker
1. Confidential data
It is true that the most common use of BitLocker is to protect the data on stolen laptops. Since you are probably an IT pro, you know that anybody can access the data on an unencrypted disk without requiring any passwords by booting up from a second drive.
2. Expanded Footprint
Password hashes for example, once an attacker has physical access to one of your company’s system disks, this opens a variety of ways to attack your whole network.
3. Disk and Hardware crashes
You think all your disks are physically well protected, what happens when they need support? What are you doing with a crashed disk that you just bought and is under warranty? You will send it to the manufacturer so they can verify that the disk is really broken. Who sees that data?
4. Time to move on
For every hard drive comes the time when the last journey to the scrap yard becomes inevitable. I know, you are a conscientious admin and erase every disk thoroughly with a special hard drive eraser tool. But is your data really gone?
