I want to be able to ensure that some of the data on several separate
computers is secure if the computers were stolen, plus I want to be able to
encrypt sensitive emails between these and any other computers.
One method would be to set up an encrypted folder using software such as
Paragon Encrypted Disc and make sure all sensitive data was within it, and
to use Verisign to encrypt emails. But I don't know whether this is the best
route. Does anyone have any advice for me?
Re: Security software recommendation
1PW has excellent answers here. Truecrypt is the easy choice for full
disk or folder encryption. Free, open source, cross-platform, and
For secure email exchange, things get a bit more interesting because
you need to have the receiving party using the same solution you are.
GPG is free and works well. If your receivers have PGP, then PGP
gives you a nicer interface to work with and it attempts to integrate
into most popular mailers. I've used both.
hushmail.com might be another alternative to consider.
