DESlock+ 3.2 review
While there’s a lot to be said for tools that check your online and system footprints to ensure you don’t leave private data accessible to someone else, there is another way to approach the privacy issue: encryption. And it doesn’t come any better than DESlock+ for Windows 2000 and XP users. Encryption is totally transparent and can be applied to email messages, files and folders using software keys. These can be stored on your PC or a CD, or even an external USB device. With four encryption key slots, there’s scope to securely share email with a select few, and another for your personal files. If that isn’t enough, there’s secure file deletion too. There’s a nag screen that kicks in after 60 days, but for occasional use it’s a price worth paying.
