BitLocker in Windows 8

Applies to: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012

BitLocker Drive Encryption is a data protection feature available in Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise, and in all editions of Windows Server 2012. BitLocker encrypts the hard drives on your computer to provide enhanced protection against data theft or exposure on computers and removable drives that are lost or stolen, and more secure data deletion when BitLocker-protected computers are decommissioned as it is much more difficult to recover deleted data from an encrypted drive than from a non-encrypted drive.

Learn how, with the BitLocker improvements in Windows 8, you can now protect valuable data on often easy-to-lose USB drives in less time and thereby increase end user acceptance of this form of data protection.
