east-tec SafeBit is a disk encryption software that helps you protect your confidential information from unauthorized access, data breaches, or computer theft. The aforementioned application features an intuitive interface and helps you to quickly create encrypted virtual disk drives (called Safes), loaded only when needed, where you can hide files and folders, keep them encrypted all them time. But still work with these files just like you work with normal files. Access to safe is password protected. The encrypted virtual disk drive is visible only when the safe is opened. When the Safe is closed it’s completely invisible.
SafeBit uses the strong 256-bit AES encryption algorithm (selected by the U.S. government as its official encryption standard). Only the person that knows the password will be able to open the safe and read the files within. The data from a safe is encrypted on-the-fly when you place it in the safe. When you open a file from a Safe the data is decrypted on-the-fly, when you save it back, the data is re-encrypted automatically. This mechanism is completely transparent to the user. The files remain encrypted all the time, NO temporary unsecured files used. In case of incorrect system shutdown or system crash the SafeBit maintains the security of data by keeping the files ALWAYS encrypted. The automatic closure system will protect you even when you are away from your computer by closing the safe when you don’t use it. The container files are also protected against accidental deletion. east-tec SafeBit even allows you to install and execute programs inside encrypted vaults, therefore leave all your traces encrypted inside the safe.

It can create a virtual encrypted disk within a file or encrypt an entire hard disk partition or a device, such as USB flash drive. In contrast to file encryption, data encryption performed by TrueCrypt is real-time (on-the-fly), meaning that data are automatically encrypted or decrypted right before they are loaded or saved, without any user intervention. In case an attacker forces you to reveal the password, TrueCrypt provides plausible deniability. [Download & learn more]
