Hard drive security tool ships
PC Guardian has released version 7.0 of its Encryption Plus Hard Disk program, rebuilding it from the ground up in hopes of receiving an advanced certification of its security. The tool encrypts your entire hard drive (or selected partitions) rather than individual files or folders.
As with past versions, PC Guardian targets Encryption Plus Hard Disk primarily at businesses and large organizations with serious security needs, so it is designed to be set up and controlled by system administrators. According to PC Guardian, most installations are on mobile PCs, where security concerns are greatest. Pricing of licenses starts at $60 per seat.
The company also markets end-user products, including the $99 Encryption Plus that protects folders as they are used, a much smaller-scale implementation of the Encryption Plus Hard Disk approach.
