The state of Arkansas seeks to identify laptop/desktop encryption solutions to be purchased by agencies, boards, commissions and administrative sections of Arkansas's institutions of higher education. Other public entities such as Arkansas K12 schools, counties, and cities will be eligible to make purchases as well. These solutions are mandatory for all state agencies (including administrative sections of higher education). Agencies, boards, commissions, and administrative sections of institutions of higher education may also use Microsoft's Bitlocker solution and TrueCrypt, a free open-source disk encryption software.
In an effort to take advantage of economies of scale, up to three solutions per platform were chosen based on cost and the solution's ability to meet the requirements of the state security working group.
