Data protection is off message should instead be "Data encryption is off"

On the Shops deskto client, on the right side it shows a message that says "Data protection is off". I called your tech support line and they told me what that means is data encryption is not enabled. Your message is alarming and incorrect, it should be changed from "Data protection is off" to "Data encryption is off" or "Device encryption is off".

Thanks,

Brent Hunter

    99.99% false positive alert? Is this a common occurrence for anyone else? I'm about to spend money on encryption but I want to be sure it actually does what it's advertised to do!

    Also, it's 99.99% a false positive alert, triggered each time when you just enable encryption on the machine. It showed up for all machines that we enabled encryption for so far and then went away eventually. Of course we had to deal with 100+ tickets that needed to be closed as false positives!
