Keep Your Information Under Your Control

Are your sensitive files and data secure? With prying eyes able to access all kinds of confidential data through our computers, make sure you are taking the necessary steps to secure your private information.

As more and more information is stored on our computers and passed back and forth from person to person, digital document and file security presents new challenges for home and corporate computer users, with fear of data breaches, identity theft, and loss of sensitive information.

To safeguard your information, it's important to store sensitive data securely. Just as you keep sensitive paper documents under lock and key, secure sensitive online information. This can be done through file encryption software. It's equally important to shred documents (both paper and electronic) that contain personal or financial information before discarding them. This prevents dumpster diving and, in the online world, the ability for hackers to bypass information that has not been permanently deleted from your computer.

Lavasoft offers three products to relieve the burden of identity theft concerns: Lavasoft Digital Lock, Lavasoft File Shredder, and Lavasoft Privacy Toolbox. These tools are a natural addition to the privacy and security software you use on a regular basis to safeguard your information.

Lavasoft Digital Lock

Protect the private digital data on your computer with the strong encryption technology of Lavasoft Digital Lock. Your online files, both at home and at the office, are a trove of private and potentially valuable information. Theft of confidential information can result in heavy financial loss, as well as lost time. With Lavasoft's encryption technology, securely store or send files by e-mail knowing that your private information is safely locked and will never fall into the wrong hands.

Lavasoft File Shredder

Take control of the information on your PC with Lavasoft File Shredder. Even after you think you have deleted information and files, traces still remain on your computer. When you delete a file, empty your Recycle Bin or format your hard disk, the information is not always removed from your PC; these methods only alter the structure of the drive, leaving most of the data intact and recoverable. You can shred your sensitive digital files with the same certainty as you shred sensitive papers in a paper shredder. Permanently remove unwanted files and data, at home or at the office, with Lavasoft File Shredder.

Lavasoft Privacy Toolbox

Build the security you require - get both the Lavasoft File Shredder and Digital Lock in one easy-to-use application. Securely store information or remove it for good from your PC with the Lavasoft Privacy Toolbox, giving you full control of your digital documents. Plus, get the most for your money with savings of over 30 percent compared to buying both products separately.
