  • Why would you need to use 2 at the same time? Could work, but I never tried. It depends on how these encryptors work. You shouldn't use 2 if you can avoid it.

    Sophos Central Device Encryption works well with Windows Bitlocker.

  • Hi,

    Sophos Safeguard not only has its proprietary encryption methods but can also host Bitlocker and File Vault (Mac’s encryption tool) within its own interface.

    Best Regards,
