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?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

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)

Are you by chance using Office 365?

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

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?

Is Meraki close to a production release of Systems Manager to support BitLocker?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

I don't know, but there was a BitLocker beta running last year.

We were told by our Rep that Meraki Systems Manager would manage and enforce BitLocker but that does not seem to be the case. We ended up using TruGrid BitLocker Management since it works whether or not you have Active Directory. TruGrid does not require any scripting and does not require GPO.

Not interested in paying for another application for Bitlocker management - SM should do this out the box.

 

@PhilipDAth You mentioned earlier in the thread O365 accounts - is there a workaround here?

Getting noticed

Re: Windows disk encryption through Systems Manager?

The way they Bitlocker support is "implemented" right now, Meraki enables it and user is prompted to sign in with Microsoft account to store decryption key OR save decryption key to an external device so we had to disable it as it creates confusion.
