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.
