RITLabs releases a new version of its proactive data protection product – The Bat! Private Disk. You can find out more about this product here.
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. Moreover, the new Private Disk takes advantage of safe hardware removal mechanism on dismounting the carrier. 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.
