My suspicion is that either they were hacked (and had their key
stolen), or that they were ordered to shutdown and recommend Microsoft's
(presumably backdoored) BitLocker as a replacement. BitLocker's
enterprise documentation makes me *incredibly* suspicious that it is
susceptible to monitoring by third-parties.
Pardon my tinfoil hat.
