Dear Team,

I just installed my ESET PROTECT on-prem server and made a policy to encrypt my notebooks.
I tested read-write speed with CrystalDiskMark on Windows 10 with a NVME SSD. It's a regular one, not a self-encrypting device.
I disabled the protection on the notebook completely.
The speed difference is significant compared to Bitlocker.

    • READ   with ESET FDE: 1012 MB/s
    • WRITE with Bitlocker:  1464 MB/s
    • WRITE with ESET FDE: 1006 MB/s
  • SEQ1M Q1T1
    • READ   with Bitlocker:  1066 MB/s
    • READ   with ESET FDE:   237 MB/s
    • WRITE with Bitlocker:  1065 MB/s
    • WRITE with ESET FDE:   487 MB/s

Is it possible to tune ESET FDE somehow without using OPAL disks?

Hi @Andras Kovacs,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to "tune" EEE/EFDE to obtain faster R/W speeds. If optimal disk speeds are required, then it does come down to having to use disks that support OPAL 2.0.

Thank you,
