Hi edugeekers. I was just wondering if anyone knows of any downfalls when using bitlocker without tpm (we want users to enter a password) and also we have some laptops without tpm. Also I know there was a few downfalls to windows 7 bitlocker in terms of security do these still exist in Windows 8 ?

The final question is would something like trucrypt be a better alternative ? Obviously we need to look at things like preventing sleep etc.

Thanks in advanced
