If you have already installed antivirus software, or better yet antimalware software that includes antiphishing, then the next logical security step is to install something such as Dekart Keeper encryption software. Even if your computer were impervious to malware and phishing, without PC file encryption your sensitive files could wind up under the control of the wrong sort of person. If, through trespass or theft, anyone gained physical access to your computer and bypassed your system login, unencrypted files would be vulnerable. More sophisticated thieves could intercept your emails and open any unencrypted attachments. Dekart Keeper provides industry-standard encryption, valuable additional security features and support that is more accessible and responsive than usual for the file encryption product category.
Encryption software is something to add after you have a security foundation consisting of a firewall, antivirus and antiphishing applications. The ability to encrypt your data files to the same standard of security as enjoyed by the U.S. government and military takes your safety and privacy to a whole new level. Dekart Keeper encrypts and decrypts files and lets you distribute them so that only your recipients can unlock them. In addition to providing an easy-to-use implementation of the powerful 256-bit AES encryption standard, it has additional general security features such as a file shredder and a password generator and meter. Help and support go above and beyond the norm for file encryption software products.
