    If by Windows 10 Lockscreen you mean the bitmap users see when they lock their computer, then this is possible already, at least with SGN 8.1.
    If not, can you specify more in detail what you mean?

    The issue is in the new encryption driver. We continuously work on improving this driver, and hope to be able to add support for Virtualbox again in the future, but we cannot say if or when that would be the case.

    @Tom Stack: this is correct, that's why we're changing the default behaviour in 8.1 back to what people are used to, ie. Device Encryption only.

    Support for BitLocker Network Unlock is on the backlog for SGN, and should be coming in an upcoming release for Central.

    While certainly a valuable idea, it should be clear that this will NOT prevent data leakage completely. Inventive users will always find a way to work around such requirement. The first thing that comes to mind is a user with a portable version of for example OpenOffice, so that they can copy the contents of an encrypted file into an unencrypted OpenOffice version.

    There is no reliable way to detect who (user, process, ...) triggered the suspension. That means such setting could lead to dangerous situations potentially resulting in data loss. For example, when Windows 10 updates itself to a newer version, it will suspend BitLocker.

    We will certainly look into a way of reporting suspension better.

    YubiKeys do look interesting, but since there are several types, we are going to need to drill it down to a specific one. Which one would you suggest and why?
