To help safeguard data on employee computers, General Mills is deploying the BitLocker drive encryption feature in the Windows 7 Enterprise operating system. However, with approximately 22,000 employees scheduled to receive BitLocker, the company was concerned about the number of IT staff that would have access to recovery information and potential difficulties with encryption-related tasks. General Mills joined the technology adoption program for Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) and plans to roll out the beta version of MBAM as part of its Windows 7 image. The company expects to boost security by using an encrypted recovery key database and by creating an audit trail of database access activities.
