usb encryptionUSB Drives have made it convenient to carry data in your pocket. You no longer need to carry bulky notebooks and netbooks to your client site for that presentation. This two inch long wonder, called USB Stick, does the job pretty nicely.

But convenience comes at a price.

The small size of the USB Stick makes it vulnerable for loss and theft. You never know when it will slip out of your pocket, or you will forget to take it out from the client’s computer where you just gave your presentation or somebody else will take it out from your laptop when you just went to washroom.

USB Encryption – The key to Secure the Data Loss

USB Encryption is the best option, if you want to safeguard your data stored in that USB. We have earlier covered a useful USB Data Encryption Tool BitLocker to Go, but that can only provide the USB Data encryption to the computers running on Windows 7.

If you are having some other operating system, then you can try USB Safeguard, the freeware utility, which does the job pretty decently.

It’s a freeware files encryption utility, small, portable and easy to use.

Simply drag and drop files and folders to quickly protect your sensitive documents, and then enter an password to encrypt and decrypt the files that you want to protect from prying eyes.

Not only encrypts your files, it also has ‘Safe Internet Browsing’ option to surf safe on web and removes all Internet traces like URL history, typed URLs, typed passwords in web forms and etc. Built in file shredder – i.e. wiping the contents of the original pre-encrypted file – and more.

Your data is secure while the drive it is out and about with you in an Internet cafe’s or at work.

Here is a nice Youtube video, which explains the features nicely.
