Technet Livemeeting: BitLocker in the enterprise – After Care

October 24, 2011 at 9:37 am in Uncategorized by nsienaert


Hi there,

First of all I want to thank all the attendees for joining the meeting and giving a lot of positive feedback.

Some people subscribed and couldn’t make it. Now they are waiting for the recording but I have some bad news…

Because of technical issues we have a recording without audio Verwarde emoticon.

The good news is, that I will do the same presentation internally at Microsoft and at that time we will try a second attempt.

This is scheduled in the beginning of December so please have some patience.

During the LiveMeeting there were some questions that I couldn’t answer directly. Here you have the answers.

– Will there be MBAM support with Intune?

Most probably yes. No official statements can be given so far. In addition to that, there are also rumours to integrate the MBAM agent into the SCCM agent.

– Is there a way to force users to encrypt rather than allow them continue to postpone?

In this version of MBAM it is not possible. In the next version it might be included.

Another attendee asked a question about how to handle Bitlocker  with MBAM in a Refresh scenario when booting in Windows PE. I explained that Niall wrote a great blog about this.

Here you have the link.


Till next time!
