ViPNet Safe Disk keeps your confidential data (files, folders, etc.) in a strongly encrypted form on your disk and provides you with a transparent access to it as if your files or folders are on the usual disk drive. ViPNet Safe Disk secures your data on your notebook or desktops by creating virtual encrypted disks. Each encrypted disk resides in a single file, which is easy to backup to any media like a recordable CD or DVD to protect it from data loss.
ViPNet Safe Disk creates one or more virtual encrypted disks on your hard drive and/or other external storage devices. Once a user creates a virtual encrypted disk, that disk is assigned a new drive letter and appears to the user like any other system drive (like the A: or C: drive).
In the working process the system is creating files so-called "containers", whose size is specified by user; the files are displayed as logic drives. When the disk is mounted, the data is automatically encrypted and decrypted when the user writes or reads this data respectively. When the disk is unmounted, either manually or by logging out of Windows, the secure data it contains becomes completely unreadable and undetectable by the operating system.
Best of all, since Safe Disk appears to Windows as another drive letter, it is instantly compatible with almost any standard business application, office applications, spreadsheets or database programs. All information that the user stores on the disks is kept encrypted. When read, the information automatically is being decrypted, when saved-encrypted. This process is completely transparent for a PC user.
1) ViPNet Safe Disk utilizes AES and GOST encryption algorithms with a key length - 256 bits;
2) The system is invisible for a PC user: while non-activated, the system cannot be seen (only connected device of data storage (Reader, for example) can show presence of the system);
3) In case of hard disk corruption, operating system reinstallation, or computer viruses a
