Microsoft Windows Instructions

Encrypting Microsoft Windows

UF recommends using BitLocker encryption on all current versions of Windows that support it. Home Editions of Windows do not support BitLocker, and are not recommended for use at UF. Faculty, staff and students can obtain low or no cost upgrades to Windows¬†through UF’s agreements with Microsoft.

UF owned computers (including those bought with grant or contract funds) must run the UFEM agent, which provides capabilities to manage BitLocker in order to comply with the university Mobile Computing and Storage Devices standard.
