Infotecs has released ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC, an application designed to protect personal information from prying eyes by encrypting and password-protecting sensitive files on Windows Mobile devices. ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC builds on the success of ViPNet Safe Disk for Windows Desktop, with the new version offering PDA owners the same unbeatable combination of data protection options and the ability to exchange confidential data between a PDA and a desktop computer.
ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC provides the PDA user with a totally protected environment where data is stored encrypted and protected by a password even when your device is switched off or in the "stand-by" mode. It allows users to create "containers", secure folders for confidential files which are created in the memory on a PDA and mounted by ViPNet Safe Disk software. Any file from a secure folder can be edited in a word processor or database program, being automatically decrypted when opened and encrypted when saved. The program supports two 256 encryption algorithms - AES and GOST.
ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC automatically demounts "containers" at system startup/exit, moves confidential data between a PDA and a PC, provided that the latter has ViPNet Safe Disk for Windows Desktop and can be used as a Today screen plug-in.
ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC runs under Windows Mobile 2003 and costs US$26.40 for a single-user license. A 20% discount is available to the buyers of ViPNet Safe Disk for Pocket PC and ViPNet Safe Disk for Windows.
