ViPNet Safe Disk is an easy-to-use, reliable, user-friendly and smart program that lets you create encrypted disk partition (drive letter) to keep your private and confidential data secure. It keeps your confidential data in a strongly encrypted form on your disk and provides you with transparent access to it from any application program. The encrypted partition 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 virtual disk 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 file so-called "container", whose size is specified by user; the files are displayed as logic disks. 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, word processor, spreadsheet or database program. 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.
