Steganos has launched Steganos Safe 2007. New features in Steganos Safe 2007 include the ability to use picture sequences as passwords, support for Apple iPods to be used to store encrypted data or keys, and protection of data in Microsoft Outlook. The maximum size of each safe has been quadrupled to 256GB.
Steganos Safe 2007 enables users to create any number of secure virtual drives, in which data is safely stored and encrypted. Each drive can now hold up to 256GB, providing plenty of space for film archives, photo albums, multimedia files, diaries, tax documents, emails and business reports to be protected. Users can change the size of each individual
drive at any time they please. The drives can be accessed directly from within applications, through Windows Explorer and through any internet browser.
New features introduced in Steganos Safe 2007:
Protection of private data in Outlook – Steganos Safe 2007 introduces support for Microsoft Outlook, ensuring the privacy of emails, calendar entries, notes and contacts. Numerous PST files (which contain all a user´s Outlook data, including the archive) can be locked in a safe.
Apple iPod support for Portable – Safes Steganos Safe 2007 enables self-decrypting Portable Safes to be created and stored on CDs, DVDs, storage cards, USB keys and DVD-DL media. These safes can be opened on computers that do not have Steganos software installed, provided that the correct password is entered. New files can also be added to the safe from these machines. When the storage media is removed, the data is automatically encrypted. In this generation of the software, an Apple iPod can be used for the first time to store a Portable Safe.
key storage on Apple iPods – The encryption key can also be stored on an iPod (although users are advised that storage keys and encrypted data should not be stored together). The key can also be stored on digital cameras, USB keys, and ActiveSync-compatible mobile phones. When the devices are connected to the computer, the data is automatically unlocked. When the key device is removed, the data is once again encrypted.
visual passwords using PicPass – This latest release introduces an alternative to the traditional password in Steganos PicPass. A user can create a sequence of pictures from a databank of 36 images. This sequence is entered to unlock the data. The pictures can be set to never appear in the same place twice, so that even a mouseclick recorder cannot crack this password.
Steganos Safe 2007 now supports Windows XP with 64 bit processors. As in previous versions, Steganos Safe 2007 includes Anti-Crash-Protection to ensure that data is protected even if the computer crashes. The software is supported with free automated updates within a generation of the software.
