Encryption on Windows Home Edition

  • Updated

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


For devices using Windows 10/11 Home, we recommend using a third-party encryption solution and adding manual evidence to the related tests in Vanta. For more details, please take a look at our Document Third-Party Encryption guide.
