New encryption tool coming to UCOP Windows 10 laptops
IT Client Services will be deploying a new encryption tool, BitLocker, to all UCOP Windows 10 laptops between Oct. 30 and Dec. 5, 2018.
We are currently using Checkpoint for encryption, but have decided that BitLocker better meets our needs. Windows 7 computers with Checkpoint will be upgraded to BitLocker during the Windows 10 upgrade rollout. Staff with Apple computers will be not be affected by this project.
Two pilot implementations are running from Sept. 17 through Oct. 25. These pilots will enable the deployment team to fully vet the user instructions and deployment processes to ensure an easy transition to this new product for OP staff.
All staff affected by this change will receive simple and easy-to-follow instructions, and the IT Service Desk will be fully available to help anyone requiring assistance.
Stay tuned for more notifications and Link articles about this change. In the meantime, if you have questions, please contact Danny Lee, technology support manager, IT Client Services, at 510-987-0774.
