We all remember Bitlocker in Windows Vista (well, the geeks do at least. Well now Microsoft has improved the version that will be release in Windows 7.
The coolest thing about Bitlocker to go is that it will allow you to encrypt removable drives (read: flash drives). You can then take that drive to another Windows 7 computer and it will ask you for a password before it will access any of the data on the thumbdrive. Another cool thing is that they will be offering a Windows XP and Vista "Bitlocker to Go Reader" piece of software that will allow you to read the keys on the older operating systems. Unfortunately it will only be available on Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate, but once you create the key it can be read on any Windows 7 version.
