SAIT has scheduled an upgrade for Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) from version 1.0 to the newest version, 2.5. This upgrade addresses compatibility issues with current workstation hardware and includes support for new operating systems, such as Windows 10. The upgrade will occur on Monday, November 14, 2016, will be unnoticeable to end users and cause no interruption of service.
What is MBAM?
MBAM is a central tool used by SAIT to provide enterprise support for management of encryption on workstations. This behind-the-scenes software allows SAIT to ensure that Student Affairs workstations are encrypted and their recovery key is backed up to our servers. This results in our end users having the ability to work with the assurance that their university data is protected.
