Encrypting your Mac OS X computer with PGP

At Indiana University, UITS recommends that all laptops be protected using whole-disk encryption. For systems running Mac OS X, you should use Apple's FileVault 2 full-disk encryption system; see Encrypting your Mac OS X computer with FileVault 2.

If you choose to encrypt your Mac OS X computer with Symantec Endpoint Encryption (PGP), you can download it from IUware.

Once you've installed the software, you must then use it to encrypt the drive. If you don't complete both steps to finish the encryption process, your computer will not be fully protected. For details, see the PGP Help menu or the Symantec Encryption support page.
