Update: The freebie is actually Steganos Privacy Suite 12, not Steganos Security Suite 12. My bad.
The following is the description of Steganos Privacy Suite 12, as per the developer:
Premium security — privacy you can trust
- Working on a PC or laptop that’s connected to the internet offers lots of advantages. But there are plenty of disadvantages too. Our laptops, USB sticks and CDs help transport documents, photos and movies all over the world. But what happens if a stranger gets a hold of the data on your hardware?
- The risks: USB sticks with irreplaceable vacation photos can fall out of pockets. DVDs that contain personal financial information get lost all the time. Laptops with e-mails, contact info and calendars can be accidentally left behind in taxis.
All your passwords are neatly stored on an Excel sheet. But unprotected documents leave you vulnerable to data thieves.
- You’ve deleted all the data on a PC you plan to sell. But did you know that someone could easily reconstruct the data you thought was gone forever?
The solution is Steganos Privacy Suite™ 12.
- Safes: Locks and encrypts documents, photos and your e-mail post office in a virtual data safe. Secures USB sticks, CDs and DVDs when on the go.
Password Manager: Organizes and manages all of your passwords and access information. All securely encrypted, of course. Supports Drag and Drop, or fills out website forms automatically.
- Shredder: Shreds unwanted data permanently—cannot be reconstructed by data recovery applications.
- Plus: E-mail and web favorites encryption functions, trace destructor and Steganography.
Complement your firewall and antivirus software with a first-rate data protection and encryption system.
A detailed list of Steganos Privacy Suite 12 features can be found at the features page.
