BitLocker Whole Disk Encryption (WDE)

BitLocker is a feature of Windows that encrypts your data to keep it safe from unauthorized access. Using BitLocker Whole Disk Encryption (WDE), your entire hard drive is encrypted. BitLocker is one very effective part of an overall protection strategy. Although it does not prevent hardware problems, malware, or accidental deletion of files, BitLocker will prevent an unauthorized person from gaining access to the data that is stored on your computer. That is very important to Widener University’s reputation and legal standing. Information Technology Services requires full-disk encryption for all University-owned desktops, laptops, and other portable computing devices. Click here for a list of FAQ’s.
