Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) 2.0 requires thorough planning before you deploy it or use its features. Because this product can affect every computer in your organization, you might disrupt your entire network if you do not plan your deployment carefully. However, if you plan your deployment carefully and manage it so that it meets your business requirements, BitLocker Administration and Monitoring 2.0 can help reduce your administrative overhead and total cost of ownership.
If you are new to this product, we recommend that you read the documentation carefully. To get the MBAM software, see How Do I Get MDOP?. Before you deploy MBAM to a production environment, we also recommend that you validate your deployment plan in a test environment. You might also consider taking a class about relevant technologies.
