Free SCCM Report: BitLocker and TPM Status Dashboard
October 2019’s free System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) report is BitLocker and TPM Status dashboard.
It goes without saying that companies manage a lot of data and this data must be kept secure at all times. Who wants to tell the CTO or President of your organization that the reason they are in the news or lost a big deal is because a laptop was stolen with important info on it? How can you guarantee that a stolen laptop won’t expose this information to the world? BitLocker of course!
BitLocker and TPM go hand-in-hand, so you need to ensure that both are enabled. How can you tell, though, what laptops are using BitLocker and if it is enabled? What about TPM? Not only do you have to ensure that both were setup correctly to begin with, but sometimes when testing or troubleshooting problems, admins turn one or the other off and forget to turn them back on.
Fortunately, with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Current Branch you can inventory the state of both BitLocker and TPM. Unfortunately, there aren’t any built-in reports for you to run in order to review this data.
With Enhansoft’s BitLocker and TPM Status dashboard you can quickly see the number of computers that are completely protected. In addition, you can see how many computers either need BitLocker enabled or have a TPM issue.
Here’s a breakdown of each state by color:
Green = Protected
Yellow = BitLocker is Not Enabled on All Drives
Orange = BitLocker is Turned Off
Pink = BitLocker is Not Enabled
Red = TPM Issue
Protected means that the system is fully encrypted with BitLocker and TPM is correct.
BitLocker is Not Enabled on All Drives means that TPM is setup and ready to use, but a computer has more than one drive within the system where at least one of the drives is not encrypted with BitLocker. Generally the solution is to enable BitLocker on all drives.
BitLocker is Turned Off means that TPM is setup and ready to use, but BitLocker is not turned on. The solution is to turn on BitLocker on all drives.
BitLocker is Not Enabled means that TPM is setup and ready to use and BitLocker is configured to be used, but as may be the case with servers, the BitLocker feature might not be installed (enabled). The solution is to install and configure BitLocker on all drives.
TPM Issue means TPM is either not installed on the computer or it is not enabled within the BIOS. The solution varies depending on the problem, but in some cases it could mean a hardware upgrade, i.e. replacing old computers with ones where TPM is installed.
As mentioned earlier, this dashboard leverages the inventory information of both TPM’s and BitLocker’s state from SCCM current branch.
