Disk Encryption Manager Prerequisites
As Disk Encryption Manager is a module of MAV-BD, MAV-BD must be installed on the device to utilize this feature.
Running Antivirus solutions side-by-side on the same machine is usually catastrophic for the device, the programs will not only severely affect performance but can also cause conflicts, for example one program attempts to remove the other, or a problem where both programs attempt to neutralize a threat etc.
Therefore, the MAV-BD Agent will not install where another (unsupported) Antivirus product is detected on the device with the incompatible product displayed in the Summary tab for the device once Managed Antivirus is enabled.
The supported OSes listed below must have BitLocker installed/enabled in order for Disk Encryption Manager to manage disk encryption. If Bitlocker is not available Disk Encryption Manager manager will fail to install and the Summary tab of the device advising Bitlocker is missing from the device.
