This chapter describes preparation and preinstallation information for Trend Micro™ Endpoint Encryption™ software installation.
When addressing any encryption project, it is important to identify the implementation goals. Organizations needing to satisfy explicit regulatory compliance requirements often require broad encryption solutions with a heavy emphasis on reporting, whereas organizations looking to improve data security may have more targeted needs to protect specific data assets.
No single plan can fit every use-case scenario, and understanding what is required of an encryption solution will greatly decrease deployment times, minimize or eliminate performance degradation, and ensure the project's success. Careful planning is required to understand the deployment requirements and limitations when scaling Endpoint Encryption across a large enterprise. Planning is especially important when introducing this change across thousands of endpoints, affecting all end-users.
