26.09.2006

Ritlabs, SRL, a developer of trusted IT security software, releases version 2.09 of its top-rated disk encryption software, The Bat! Private Disk. Private Disk is logical, intuitive and easy to use; it effectively protects confidential information on Windows PCs and USB storage devices by creating virtual encrypted disks.

The Bat! Private Disk helps keep corporate and individual data safe by providing comprehensive and proactive protection against internal and external threats, such as viruses, Trojans, adware, spyware, unauthorized network access, and mass-mailer attacks, with malware and vulnerability-based detection.

New version introduces a set of improvements and convenient modifications. Thus, Private Disk now has the possibility of self-installing onto a portable carrier, which makes managing Private Disk very easy. Previous versions did not have such an option, users having to move program files manually. Moreover, the new Private Disk takes advantage of safe hardware removal mechanism on dismounting the carrier. That means that once the work with Private Disk is finished, the program will pop up a dialog box for removing the hardware safely. Such a mechanism minimizes the chances of accidental user data loss.

Another major improvement is password quality check feature. The program analyses the password chosen by the user, decides whether this password is strong or weak and gives advice to the user how to improve the quality of the password in order to protect user data from intruders trying to crack the access to it. Password quality check feature analyses password length, frequency of different symbols, checks up the password in dictionary before and after making modifications proposed by the program (for example, switching symbol capitalization, reversing the password). All these measures are directed on helping the users to pick the most effective keyword and to maximally complicate the intruders’ work on cracking the access to user data.

Private Disk new version is one of the first encryption protection products fully compatible with Windows XP/2003 x64. It supports all the functions of this operational system, and users will not meet any obstacles when working with our program. Needless to say that Private Disk is perfectly compatible with all the previous versions of Windows operational system.

Using Private Disk, organizations can reduce the risk of data loss or steal and comply with industry and regulatory mandates, such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SARBOX/SOX), Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and other regulations like the Federal Privacy Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Private Disk’s mechanisms are efficient against both internal and external threats, minimizing the risks of intellectual property theft and accidental data leaks. Now Private Disk is super-mobile, users can freely take advantage of it for protecting information stored on portable carriers. Private Disk guarantees that confidential information stays confident under any circumstances.
