Is Bitlocker FIPS 140-2 compliant?

Padlock So I was at one of my live events here a few weeks ago and we were talking about bitlocker drive encryption.  The question arose as to whether Bitlocker was FIPS 140-2 compliant.  At the time I was not sure that it was approved in FIPS 140-2.  I went back and did a little searching to verify the date of certification.  I am happy to officially answer that Yes bitlocker is FIPS 140-2 compliant and was certified in 2008.  You can read about the compliance certification here. 

As always I am a huge fan of Bitlocker drive encryption.
