    So we are implementing PointSec at work for full disk encryption of mobile systems. We are also encrypting removable media (external hardrives and usb drives). I'm completely new to this and know nothing. Was wondering if anybody had any experiences they could share about it?

    i had that pushed to my work laptop few months ago -- provides security but performance since then has been horrible. the start times went from secs to minutes. frequent crashes... although i am not sure if that pointsec issue or the other crap that was pushed onto the system. the initial encrypt also takes a while ... i ran the install overnight.

    we had that at my last job. yeah, it kills performance, but i can't say i had any problems with it other than that.
