SecurStar GmbH has updated its DriveCrypt products compatible with Microsoft’s new Windows Vista operating system.
DriveCrypt 4.6 provides data encryption for confidential information stored in notebooks and desktop computers in a fast and secure way with its “on the fly” encryption. Some features give users the possibility of encrypting an entire hard disk partition or creating a “virtual safe” container for storing encrypted files, preventing attackers from accessing sensitive information. Protected data may be accessed by password or, optionally, a USB token, smart card or fingerprint reader.
An additional special feature is the option to encrypt confidential data using steganography. This function allows for “hiding” any type of data inside a music file.
