Poole’s BitLocker pitch


MICROSOFT

Senior VP Will Poole

Microsoft Senior Vice President Will Poole was particularly enthusiastic about the BitLocker file encryption feature coming on high-end versions of Vista.

He spent a recent Saturday sorting out the mess after his financial institution lost a laptop containing his personal information. It was a hassle, but it gave Poole the perfect anecdote for his keynote.

“I sure wish that company had available to it Windows Vista and BitLocker drive encryption,” he said during his speech.

He didn’t mention that the financial company would have had the feature if Microsoft had finished Vista on time.
