As many probably know, we recently released new encryption software called PC Lock™. This software makes encryption easy for anyone, but do a lot of people still think that the process is reserved for secret agents and spies? Probably, but that’s not a personally smart way of thinking. Computerworld UK just posted a story the other day that could affect millions of people in the region.
The story discusses that an UNENCRYPTED laptop containing medical data for 8.63 million people had gone missing from a hospital in London. The laptop included details on 18 million hospital visits over an unknown period of time.
Can you imagine being one of those 8 million people? Going to the doctor is a very private matter and you rely on the hospital taking the correct measures to make sure your private information is kept that way. This goes for the information that you have direct control over as well.
With the growing number of data insecurity cases, such as the hack on Sony’s® Playstation Network™ leaving millions of people’s information open for the taking, it is more important now than ever to take control. While not everything is in our direct control, it is important to take strict measures to make sure that our information is never out in the open where others can access it. This is where encryption, and PC Lock, comes in to play.
PC Lock takes the fear and confusion out of the encryption process by doing everything for you and makes it easy to manage your secured files and folders. All you have to do is install PC Lock, set a password and security questions and PC Lock will do the rest by securing your data with 256-bit AES encryption making it extremely difficult to break. The software comes paired with a Web Management Console that allows you to manage your preferences and passwords from the cloud on any web-enabled device. You can even report a stolen PC from the cloud, allowing you to restrict access to your data on the fly.
You may still think, “This kind of stuff doesn’t happen to me so I don’t need extra protection.” Or, “Encryption is only for agencies with very private information that needs to stay confidential.” But if you think that, then you must not care much about your private information. Most digital data is very easily accessible by other people, leaving you and your identity free for the taking, which could then lead to significant financial loss and in these times no one can afford that.
Give PC Lock a try, after all we do have a 30-day FREE trial so you can give it a shot and see if you like it. PC Lock is only $29.95 for an entire year which is less than $2.50 a month. This gives you the whole deal, 256-bit AES encryption, access to the Web Manage Console and peace of mind that only you can access your sensitive data and no one else. If you value your identity by at least $2.50 per month you need to get PC Lock.
