Encryption on Windows Home Edition

  • Updated


When installed on a Windows OS device, the Vanta Agent is specifically checking for BitLocker enablement to confirm encryption monitors, however Windows 10 and 11 Home Edition does not support BitLocker hard drive encryption.


For devices using Windows 10/11 Home, we recommend to use a third-party encryption solution, and add manual evidence to the related tests in Vanta. Please see our Document Third-Party Encryption guide for further details.
