Windows 7: Drive Encryption

Drive Encryption

Hi there

I have a question regarding windows BitLocker, or more specifically regarding the lack of it on windows 7 pro.

I am intending on rolling out a security policy for my companies laptops that will include a drive encryption requirement amongst other things. To upgrade from pro to ultimate/enterprise on these machines won't be financially viable i wouldn't of thought so, so I'm looking for a commercially available and reliable piece of software to do the job for me.

i know there are things in open source like True Crypt, but I'm uncertain about using software thats basically unsupported in a commercial environment

any advice or tips much appreciated

thanks

Ben
