Okay what we have here with BestCrypt is a tool for someone who is serious about security. I mean really serious.

The people at Jetico have made BestCrypt into an all in one security tool for your sensitive data. Here is what it will do:

--BestCrypt creates and supports encrypted virtual disks and these disks are visible as regular disks with correspondent drive letters.
--It works over Networks.
--You can right click and securely delete and wipe out data.

Those are the basic things that it does. BestCrypt has a number of enhancements that help you out with these tasks like the BCWipe utility and the Container Guard utility.

I found this on their webpage:
New Swap File Encryption utility is now included in BestCrypt software, version 7. The Swap File is the Windows system file that is used for virtual memory support. It can store portions of documents, you were or are working with, in an opened form on the hard drive. Even if an original document is encrypted by some powerful encryption program, Windows can copy that document in whole or in part to the Swap file in decrypted form. Encryption keys, passwords, and other sensitive information can also be swapped to the hard drive. Even if you use all of the security features of the latest version of Windows, simple investigation of the Swap file in DOS mode with readily available tools gives an intruder access to your most sensitive information. To the best of our knowledge, only BestCrypt v.7 allows you to encrypt the Swap file contents and prevent such an attack on your data.

That about knocked my socks off! I had no idea that my Swap file was vulnerable. Those people at Jetico have know though.

In conclusion if you want a real serious security tool at a reasonable price BestCrypt is the tool for you!

Try It! Buy It!
