Hi all,


Does anyone have some experience and insights on  FDE vs. BitLocker? 

I was asked to do a comparison of the two products. I want to understand what are the pros/cons of each of them especially in terms of: 


- Ease of deployment

- OS/BIOS compatibility

- issues with OS upgrades and updates

- recovery and decrypt options 


I know that FDE has some issue with OS upgrades, Microsoft updates and BIOS Updates. 

In addition, FDE doesn't support some Microsoft security features like credential guard and device guard 

Bitlocker is more native to the OS but requires to have intune and Azure AD  to activate and deploy in an enterprise environment (this is supported only on windows 10 pro)


Any further information is welcome
