    Easy encryption software

    All I want is some nice and easy to deploy Encryption software, I really don't want to have to image any machines when I do it.

    Whilst Truecrypt is free there are no instructions on how to deploy it automatically.

    Is there a server based product out there? - I don't mind paying (well, to a point!)

    How about an MSI?

    SourceForge.net: Open Source MSI repository: Files

    (Bit out of date tho)

    It's not a hijack, If there is one out there I'm all for it! How about configuring it automatically too!

    I just searched wpkg

    TrueCrypt - WPKG | Open Source Software Deployment and Distribution

    TrueCrypt

    This is a silent installer for TrueCrypt, a program for using files or partitions as encrypted volumes. Very high level of security is offered alongside with hidden volumes etc.

    Unfortunately it currently doesn't have a silent installer. The following uses msi-packet from RogueSpear (Registration to forums required). Msi-packet doesn't support silent uninstalling.

    There is some good advice at:

    Data handling security guidance for schools
    Becta Schools - Data handling security guidance for schools

    Keeping data secure, safe and legal is a summary document for network managers, senior leaders or staff with a responsibility for securing data. It outlines the key measures organisations should adopt. http://schools.becta.org.uk/upload-d...n_handling.pdf

    Dos and Doníts is a common sense guide that senior leaders can make available to staff to ensure everyone within an organisation knows how they should be helping keep data secure.
    http://schools.becta.org.uk/upload-d..._and_donts.pdf

    Data encryption

    Hey, has anyone got a copy of the original 2008, 54 page, BECTA guide to data encyption? You know, the one with a large section detailing how to use TrueCrypt? It's been replaced on their site, with a newer, shorter version

    I spent a long time making an MSI for truecrypt, has that MSI been there for long lol?

    I just installed the MSI from the souceforge site and it doesnt seem to work as it doesnt install the driver? (checked on Vista)

    I think my MSI ONLY installed the driver and they could then run truecrpyt in portable mode?

    Its been a while, and after hours of work, only 2 people ever brought memory sticks to me.. but hey
