Microsoft Vista and Onsite in New Orleans

May 2, 2008

One of Onsite Computer’s New Orleans clients recently had his Microsoft Vista Enterprise notebook stolen from his car.  Included on the computer were sensitive banking account information, active stock trading account information, and business employee information.  The data contained on the Vista laptop was far more valuable than the laptop.  Microsoft, responding to the need for protection of data during situations like this, addressed these important concerns with WIndows Bitlocker Drive Encription which is included as a new addition to their operating system in Vista Enterprise and Ultimate.

Drive encryption protects data by preventing unauthorized users from accessing Windows file and system files on lost, stolen or inappropriately decommissioned computers. This protection is achieved by encrypting the entire Windows volume; with BitLocker all user and system files are encrypted.  Our client was fortunate in this situation; he was unaware of Windows Bitlocker Drive Encryption and his edition of Vista Enterprise.

If you’re searching for New Orleans computer service or repair of your Microsoft based system or network, then call the Microsoft specialists at Onsite Computer Services, Inc. in New Orleans 504-469-6991.
