Why Protect My Files?
A lot of people assume that just because their computer has an
anti-virus suite installed, it's going to be fine and no one can steal
your data. Realistically, if you work in an office or you take your
laptop to Starbucks, this just isn't the case, and the ability of
individuals to dip in and out of your hardrive is defined only by where
you take it.
Encryption is the key to good data protection, and of course you're able
to encrypt everything you like, from single files to folders containing
important documents and information. It's not a complicated series of
methods, and of course the documentation we provide online for you will
teach you how to encrypt everything.
But what data should you be taking more care of? Well, simply, anything
you wouldn't show to a random person on the street! This can be anything
at all, from a novel you're working on (this is exceptionally
important, as this is something you may not have yet established
copyright on, yet) to your O2 Broadband username and password - not fun
if the person manages to start taking over your home Wi-Fi network at
three in the morning.
When thinking about encyption, it's also much easier to use software to
encrypt rather than relying on archaic methods or worse, DIY with little
experience, as you may find that the end result is you being locked
completely out of your files, with no way back in - a rather ironic end
to the noble goal of keeping your data safe!
We offer a great range of software that will help you achieve the level
of encryption required to stop nonchalant data-thieves, so relax, enjoy
your computer, and keep safe - you never know when you might next find
yourself surfing on public Wi-Fi!
