Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

Comes here often

Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

I know for OSX, there is an option in the Systems manager to select FileVault. Does Windows have an option for that? If not, what programs are you using? Bitlocker?

We only use BitLocker.

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

I am using bitlocker, nope Systems manager has no option to enforce bitlcker nor can it monitor.

I am suffering due to it.

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

Can you control it via group policy?

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

Don't have a AD, Local group policy is not dependable and no visibility/reporting.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

What about sending a command to every machine to turn on Bitlocker? If they have it enabled already nothing will happen. Otherwise it will turn it on.

I think the command would be something like:
manage-bde -on
or perhaps it might be safer to do:
manage-bde -on c:

Do this on a test machine first!

Here is some more info about the process:

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

I am already rolling out via another tool i have (a script agent), couldn't wait.
Now this is Geared towards reporting and enforcing, comparing with whats there for OSX in meraki MDM

 

on my wish list is systems that are enforced have the bitlocker recovery key escrowed to dashboard (instead of AD)

Following topic as I would also love a solution to this. I am in the same boat as we are powered by google. @felix_fx2 did you manage to get any decent solution in place?
