EncryptStick is the easiest way to protect all the documents, photos, videos and passwords stored on your computer from everyone, including hackers or thieves. EncryptStick allows you to create unlimited invisible, encrypted vaults [folders containing sensitive files] on the flash drive itself, on any computer or removable device such as servers or portable hard-drives, as well as writeable media such as CDs, DVDs or SD memory cards.
As our lives become increasingly digitized, with personal and financial information being stored on our computers and online, we create great opportunities for identity theft. EncryptStick provides the ultimate protection against accidental data loss, as well as the latest hacking techniques so users can rest assured their critical information remains safe. EncryptStick acts as a personal key to any computer, without leaving a footprint on any PC. Without the flash drive and your personal password, no one will be able to access your encrypted files. Even if your flash-drive is stolen or lost, or your computer is stolen, the data remains safe.
The software and your password are never installed on a computer. Instead, they run directly from your smart drive, which adds another level of protection. Even if someone were to gain physical access to your computer, without both the required EncryptStick flash drive inserted, and the correct personal password, your encrypted files are rendered unintelligible.
Once the EncryptStick-enabled flash drive is plugged into the computer's USB port, the software will run automatically and prompt you for your password. After entering the password, you will be able to open existing vaults, create new vaults and easily encrypt or decrypt any file by right-clicking and selecting from a drop down menu, or simply dragging and dropping the files into the vault folders. These vaults are totally hidden unless you wish them to appear as a regular folder. You can store any type of file in your vaults and they can only be accessed if your flash drive is inserted into the USB slot and you type in your password. The simple drag and drop function allows you to easily add files to your vaults. These files can also be transferred to your Flash drive for safe transfer to another computer. Private vaults are great for families who share a computer and wish to keep certain files private from children, friends and even spouses. EncryptStick also enables "encryption on the fly" with the ability to edit documents within vaults while the files are encrypted.
In the event of a lost flash drive, the EncryptStick application renders the files unintelligible and provides an immediate Key Recovery function from the Encrypt-Stick.com website. In the case of your PC or laptop crashing, your files would be unintelligible to the PC Repair Shop. With these duplicated files on your flash drive, you can now carry on work at a second computer.
With EncryptStick, you can leave your laptop at work and simply plug your EncryptStick-enabled flash drive into your home computer to gain access to all your encrypted files and passwords. The software was developed in such a manner that there is no trace of the files left behind on third party computers. Automatic timeouts can be user-defined to lock the EncryptStick vaults and prompt for a password in the instance that you walk away from your computer with the flash drive inserted.
The recently published Symantec Internet Security Threat report stated that a hacking technique called keystroke-logging--often used to steal information such as online bank account credentials--made up 76 percent of all online threats. The EncryptStick Password Manager tool addresses this important security concern by enabling the user to securely log into sensitive websites, providing advanced algorithmic protection while sensitive passwords are entered.
