Windows Vista RoI: BitLocker drive encryption enough to justify upgrades?

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 9:55 PM
According to analyst Jon Oltsik of Enterprise Strategy Group, Windows Vista's BitLocker drive encryption system provides enough RoI to justify the upgrade for enterprise customers. PC encryption tools have now become a "must-have" and most enterprises are considering deploying such tools.

Standalone drive encryption utilities cost $100-$200 per system in acquisition cost alone. Add to that installation, configuration and ongoing support costs, and the upgrade to Windows Vista - which includes drive encryption (and other security and management features) - begins to look quite attractive.
