The Full Encryption dashboard includes these tiles:

Encryption Status

The Encryption Status tile shows the computers that support Full Encryption and their encryption status.

Encryption Status

Click an area of the tile to open the Encryption Status list, filtered to show computers with that status. Each status shows as both a number and a percentage of the compatible computers.

Computers can have these encryption statuses.

  • Enabled — Computers with Full Encryption installed. Settings are assigned to encrypt the computer, and there are no reports of any encryption or installation errors.
  • Disabled — Computers with Full Encryption installed. Settings are assigned to not encrypt the computer, and there are no reports of any encryption or installation errors.
  • Error — Computers not able to perform actions that are specified in the encryption or decryption settings.
  • Error Installing — Computers, when required, not able to download and install BitLocker.
  • No License — Computers are compatible with Full Encryption, but do not have an assigned license.
  • No Information — Computers with a recently assigned license that have not reported their status to the server, or computers with an expired WatchGuard endpoint agent.

The number in the center of the circle is the total of all computers compatible with Full Encryption.
