Disk Encryption 10.3 Restricting Users

Created: 31 Jul 2014 • Updated: 31 Jul 2014 | 1 comment

Hello

I have installed Symantec Disk Encryption (Whole Disk) on several Windows7 (64) desktops in a Server 2008 R2 (64) Domain, and I am looking for a way to disable the "Do You Want To Enable PGP To Be Available From This Computer" for every user logging on?  Is there a way to do this?  If not in Symantec, any ideas on a GPO to disable this from running?

Also notice that users can access this from desktop All Programs and access "uninstall", any way to disable that?

If this is in the wrong community, pelase move

Thank you

B.

Hi,

As fars as I am aware there is not option in PGP to disable this function but you can try to do it via AD GPO

for example:
