The Virtual Safe for your Confidential Files
Whether you use your Mac for work, play, or everyday activities at home, it contains a variety of files. You may have music, movies and photos; word processing documents, spreadsheets and contact information; reports, letters and to-do lists. Most of these files need no special protection, but some of them are confidential: you may have files for your business, personal financial records, private e-mail, instant message transcripts and more. Mac OS X protects your files by requiring a password to access your user account, but hackers, vandals and data-thieves may be able to bypass this protection.
FileGuard X4 creates virtual safes that provide unbreakable protection for all your sensitive files. You can create as many safes as you want, using them for different types of files: you can create a safe for your e-mail, another for your business documents, another for your financial records, and one for schedules, contacts and calendars. Each safe can have its own password, and when you close a safe, there’s no way that anyone can get at its contents. You can set the size of a safe, or create safes that increase in size as you add files to them.
FileGuard X4′s safes are not only secure, they are also portable. You can store safes on file servers or external disks and you can keep them on your home or office computer with no risk of anyone opening them. You can even send FileGuard X4 safes to friends, family or colleagues, and they can access files contained in those safes, if they have the password, even if they don’t have FileGuard X4 software.
In addition to creating safes that you can use for any confidential files, FileGuard X4 lets you create special safes that protect your e-mail and instant messaging transcripts. When you create one of these safes, FileGuard X4 copies all the files for your e-mail or instant messaging program into the safe. When you open the safe, then launch a protected program, that program reads and writes from its safe. You can then quit the program and close the safe to ensure that your sensitive files remain protected. FileGuard X4 has an assistant that walks you through the steps necessary to create these safes, as well as safes for specific folders (such as your Documents folder), and custom safes for any folder you want to protect.
FileGuard X4′s safes are easy to access. Double-click a safe’s icon in the Finder, then enter your password to open it. When a safe is open, you simply drag files to its icon to add files. You can use floating avatars for your safes, which display above other windows on your screen, so you can drag files to them regardless of which Finder window is visible.
You can also access your safes easily from the Intego menu, which displays in your menu bar: you can open a safe, no matter where it is stored, simply by selecting it from the Intego menu and typing your password.
Finally, you can access safes from standard Open and Save windows, so you can select files from them to work with, or save files directly to your safes to avoid writing them in unprotected form to your hard disk.
FileGuard X4 has a practical assistant that helps you create safes easily, and you can also use the FileGuard X4 application to create safes and change their settings. This application lets you manage all your safes, whether they are open or closed, change settings, change the sizes of safes or compress them, and much more.
