Are your personal files secure?

If you are not the only user on the computer, sensitive files can be accessed by other people. Moreover, it is possible that a virus or other malware program will install itself on the computer in your absence and will send sensitive data over the internet. Sometimes it is harmless, sometimes not. Just an example: on the internet, there are thousands of private photos stolen by hackers.

ViPNet Safe Disk is a utility that guards your private data. It creates a virtual drive where you can put all sensitive files. The drive is encrypted with a 256-bit key, which provides fairly strong protection. ViPNet Safe Disk utilizes AES and GOST encryption algorithms that guarantee impossibility of an unauthorized decryption (provided your password is not a simple word found in a dictionary).

In fact, all files that you save to the virtual drive are stored in an encrypted container file on your hard drive. Files in the container cannot be accessed directly, as even with ViPNet Safe Disk uninstalled, it remains encrypted. You can decrypt your files any time by starting the program and entering your password. The container is mounted then as a usual drive, with its own drive letter, so it is easily accessible from any program. Encryption and decryption are provided on the fly, which means that files are automatically encrypted, when you put them to the encrypted drive, and decrypted, when you access them from any application.

Once you unmount the drive, it disappears from Windows Explorer and cannot be accessed anymore, unless you decide to mount it again. Encrypted drives are unmounted automatically on shutdown. Thus, your sensitive files remain hidden in your absence.

ViPNet Safe Disk offers a number of additional features that turn it to a reliable encryption solution indeed. "Danger" and "high danger" modes will help you avoid bad surprises. The program is ready for multi-user environments. You can choose to protect your data by a password, by a key file, or by a token. The roll-back feature allows recovering from undesired changes to the sensitive data.

ViPNet Safe Disk is safe to use even for beginners. It is smart enough to exclude the possibility of doing something destructive unknowingly.
