USB encryption product news #2: SafeHouse 3.0

PC Dynamics announced the release of its new SafeHouse 3.0 data privacy and encryption software with dozens of new features including greatly-enhanced support for USB memory sticks. SafeHouse locks, hides and encrypts sensitive files and folders using passwords and super-strong encryption. SafeHouse is completely transparent to the way users work and is compatible with all Windows applications by masquerading as a password-protected Windows drive letter.

SafeHouse can protect files on any hard drive, however, it has found a particular niche with USB memory sticks and other small-format storage devices as more and more people embrace portable media and take their data to go.

The new SafeHouse 3.0 takes data security to an even higher level with features which allow off-the-shelf USB memory sticks to be turned into virtual smartcards, which not only remember the passwords for any number of other encrypted storage areas on internal and external drives, but can also serve as PIN-enabled physical keys based on hardware serial numbers.

The product is available in both Personal and Professional editions starting at $29.99, and free trial software can be downloaded from the company’s encryption website at
