New features of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
Authored by: afingal on Apr 12, '11 07:50:05AM

Full disk encryption in File Vault is my choice. My employer requires full disk encryption, currently PGP Whole Disk, for all laptops. This isn't working very well because it breaks just about every update of OS X. Machines become unbootable and you have to use a recovery disk which takes hours to decrypt the drive, fix it and then re-encrypt.

The current version of File Vault is not sufficient because files saved outside the user folder are not encrypted. Lion is supposed to include full disk encryption for the first time and, presumably, it won't cause the problems which PGP has.

It is working well. Your complete disk will be encrypted and you need to provide your pw prior to booting to decrypt it. Its integration is very nice.
