Why Folder Lock?
Folder Lock is a revolutionary concept in data security that allows you to not only lock and/or encrypt your files and folders but also optionally backup your encrypted data to an online account, keeping your data synced at all times so that you won't have to worry about the confidentiality of your data as well as data loss. Besides encryption and secure backup of your files, Folder Lock provides additional award-winning data protection features like Lock Files, Protect USB / CD, Make Wallets, Shred Files, and Clean History.
Folder Lock is the ONLY data protection with an online backup solution providing true end-to-end encryption and password protection of all your personal and confidential files at all times. With advanced government-level 256-bit AES encryption on your desktop and 128-bit encryption for all online communications, Folder Lock gives you End-to-End data security to protect all your data, thus, maintaining data confidentiality and integrity at all times.
With more than 515 million records breached since January in the Unites States alone, leaving this kind of information and data open for access is a dangerous game, even for the well-versed of users.
Protecting your data and information from certain unwanted and prying eyes may become a dilemma if you end up with enough personal and private data on your computer or on your external storage devices.
With information changing hands and data transfer figures at record numbers, critical files and folders like these need robust protection so that intruders or unauthorized users are stopped right in their tracks - whether to read, view, copy, move, or delete them. IF it is personal or confidential, it NEEDS protection!
Files and folders left unprotected can lead to theft, data-loss, and breaches of your privacy, costing you embarrassment, money, lost data, and maybe even your job!
Folder Lock uses government-level 256-bit AES encryption for protecting your files. Unlike slow encryption programs, the program uses on-the-fly encryption, a technology that takes seconds to encrypt - even GBs of data. Using this technology, when Folder Lock opens the data contained in a Locker, it does not decrypt each and every file. Rather, only those files and folders are decrypted; that need access. And since files are decrypted into RAM instead of the Hard Disk, this gives you an added security benefit because – 1) Recovery of files is not possible from the Hard Disk, as there was nothing there in the first place; and 2) Data decrypted in RAM is cleared automatically after a system shutdown or restart.
Following is a list of the comprehensive and award-winning features and benefits that have made Folder Lock a revolutionary product in data protection and security:
achieved. It uses a patent pending technology that allows the virtual drive to expand automatically depending on how much new data in dumped in, while leaving very small initial footprint when created.
instantaneously when copied to the Locker. No next steps to encrypt. Furthermore, the decryption is automatic and takes place in the memory, leaving no decrypted file on the hard drive ever.
Additionally, using the 'Lock Files' feature you can quickly lock and/or hide each file, folder, or drive you specify without requiring you to move or copy your data to a Locker. All locked items are listed in 'Lock Files'. This list not only helps to organize viewing of your Locked files, but also allows you to quickly edit files, with options to enable/disable the protection per item according to requirements. This removes the hassle of having to unlock and unhide each file and folder separately.
Even though locking is fast, it is strongly advised to consider encryption for your most important data.
Folder Lock is also one of the best data protection tools for protecting all your portable devices. USB Flash Drives, external hard drives, pen drives, Zip drives, floppy disks, even CDs/DVDs-RWs. You have the option to either create a new Locker on, or move/copy an existing Locker to, your selected external drive.
Protecting your data on external drives is fast and extremely easy to implement. To secure your files directly onto your external drive, simply select the 'Create Locker' option in the application and select your chosen external drive as the destination for your new Locker. Additionally, select 'Move/Copy Locker' to move/copy an existing Locker to your external drive. Please note that, by default, Lockers are created in your computer's 'My Documents' folder.
Portability of your protected files enables you to take your password-protected files anywhere you want without the fear of data-loss or -theft.
Folder Lock has been a cutting edge program in data protection and security applications with a robust and comprehensive suite of data security functions and provides advanced data security features for users with government-level data protection needs.
