    MXC iSafeGuard v5.0.0 & FileView v1.0 (Freeware)

    About iSafeguard
    iSafeguard is a powerful cryptographic software product that enables you to protect your most valuable assets - information with strong encryption and authentication.

    Using strong encryption iSafeguard provides protection against anyone eavesdropping on the network. Even if your data is intercepted, it is completely unreadable to the snooper. Using strong authentication iSafeguard ensures the integrity and origin of your data.

    iSafeguard is a very import tool within your network security infrastructure, since loss of confidentiality may mean loss of business.

    iSafeguard Features

    Features available in Enterprise, Professional and Freeware editions
    Integrated with Windows Shell
    Creating own X.509 digital certificates
    Signing and encrypting files and folders
    Signing and encrypting e-mails
    Verifying digital signatures and countersignatures
    Wiping files and folders
    Wiping disk free space
    And more


    FileView Utility Program
    Does your secure delete program really wipes the content of a file? You can use our free utility FileView to find out. Click here to download.

    How It Works
    Simple. It first finds the clusters that a file occupies and then read the cluster content directly from the disk volume.

    Since the program directly accesses a disk volume you must login as an administrator to use it.

    Requirements
    You must login as an administrator to run it.

    The size of the file must be greater than 4096 bytes to guarantee the content of the file is not located in MFT (Mater File Table).

    Only works on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003; Windows 95/98/ME are not supported.

    How To Use It
    To use the utility to verify if the content of a file is really wiped, follow the steps below:

    Browse to a file. The program will remember the clusters that the file occupies.

    Click each cluster to view its content; make a copy the content and save it elsewhere. (Leave the FileView utility program running)
    Use your favorite secure delete program to wipe the file.

    Switch back to the FileView utility and click on each cluster.

    Compare the content of each cluster with that you saved earlier.

    You should see the contents are different. A good secure delete program should overwrite a file with a pattern and then overwrite it again with the complement of the pattern and finally overwrite the file with random data; this is one pass. The program should allow you to wipe a file with multiple passes.

    If you still see the content of the file or part of it then you should consider switching to use another secure delete program, such as iSafeguard.

    Yeah, it's a nice freebee. I like the encryption shell extension feature for mail clients. :)

    I'll need to try it out sometime.
