Testing for client system requirements Client systems must meet the requirements for Drive Encryption before the product can be installed. The Pre-Boot Smart Check can be used with the Drive Encryption GO (DEGO) 7.2.x utility to help with initial deployments. DEGO performs checks and validation in the operating system, and the Pre-Boot Smart Check performs checks/validations outside of the operating system. The combined usage of these tools provides the highest confidence of a successful deployment. For more information, see Requirements testing for client systems.
