Today’s Tip…

With MBAM 2.0 (Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring), end-users can use the Self-service Portal to recover their recovery keys. The portal can be deployed on a single server with the other MBAM components, or on a separate server that gives IT administrators the flexibility to expose the portal to users, as required. Once users are authenticated by the portal, they need to enter only the first eight digits of the recovery key to receive the recovery key.

MBAM also secures the key by allowing users to recover keys only for the computers on which they are users. This means that users can retrieve only their own keys, reducing the risk of unauthorized access by other users.
