Introducing Sophos Central for Bitlocker Management

August 15, 2022

Starting September 13th, 2022, at 8AM, FDU OIRT will upgrade the Sophos software on FDU owned Microsoft Windows computers to Sophos Central for Bitlocker Management. This software will be installed on your PC seamlessly without any action required on your part.

Our goal is to provide our community with as safe and protected a computing environment as possible. This upgrade will enhance our community’s device security and user experience by:

  • Simplifying and improving upon the password change process
  • Ensuring that our devices are protected with full disk encryption
  • Improving and simplifying the security and access of shared devices
  • Improving our ability to support the community

You will not need to reset your Bitlocker PIN number. If you have a recently issued FDU desktop computer, you already have Sophos Central. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the University Technical Assistance Center at (973)-443-8822 or visit and open a support request.
