Lets talk about secure storages. A secure storage, for a «mere mortal», definitely should have some obvious properties. The number of those properties is small, but all of them should exist, and all of them should be at an ultimate level. In a few words, there should be the ultimate reliability of the protection and the ultimate ease of use. The first one is about data safety; so is the second one because should a program require dozens of clicks and other manipulations in for protecting each file, you would probably neglect it whenever that would be possible.
OK, and now I would show-you-the-soft: Liveye BladeBox eXtreme. While using high-strength professional cryptography (technically speaking, AES algorithm), it is really easy and pleasant to use. All you?d need to do is follow one short and simple wizard and BladeBox will give you a secure storage, which physically resides in a single encrypted file, while the system sees it as one more «logical disk». The disk can be «mounted» and «unmounted». To mount such disk to the system, you should know the access password. In addition, the storage file itself can be hidden from the file system with the HideBlade technology. But even if the file would be stolen, nobody can make any use of it without the real password.
Liveye BladeBox eXtreme really shows what must a really usable security solution for everyday use look like.
