PGP Whole Disk Encryption 

Using PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE), your entire disk is encrypted. After encryption, you will enter a passphrase when you start you computer. Not all computers need to be encrypted. If you have questions about your computer and the data stored on it, contact your departmental support technician, or contact the OIT Service Desk at 3-1222.
