Setting up Sophos SafeGuard - Windows
Sophos SafeGuard Setup Overview
This tutorial applies to the following operating system:
The installation will take place automatically, but encryption will not take place until a passphrase is set. These steps will help you begin the encryption process.
You will be prompted to set a passphrase when you log in.
The passphrase should be unique, must be at least 8 characters in length, and should not be your name, phone number, current NetID password, or an easy to guess sequence.
Select restart and encrypt once you have entered your passphrase.
If you receive an error, it is likely that your passphrase does not meet the requirements.
After the restart, you will need to use the passphrase to turn the computer on.
This passphrase will be required every time the computer is turned on, or is rebooted.
Login to Windows and encryption will begin. To check progress, select the BitLocker icon.
