Keeping your sensitive data away from prying eyes and data hackers is easy with Steganos Safe. This tool creates safes of up to 2 TB that no hacker has been able to crack as of yet. Password-protected with the latest 384-bit AES-XES encryption methods, Steganos Safe can hide all the most valuable information on your PC, in the cloud, or in your network, as well as in portable safes that you can carry with you on any USB drive.

The program allows you to create as many safes as you need, and hide all of some of them for extra protection. The safe setup process is simple and straightforward – just follow the program’s wizard-based instructions and organize your sensitive data in clearly labeled and extremely secure safes. You can add your own password to a safe or let the program produce a high-security password for you with its built-in password generator. The tool will evaluate any password you use, and won’t let you go on with the setup process unless it considers it to be 100% secure according to the most exigent standards. You can then save the password discretely on any USB stick, and use this as an automatic lock that will close your virtual vaults for good as soon as you remove the USB memory from your PC.

Once created, safes can be moved to a different location, deleted, hidden, and even put into another safe, as an extra security measure. You can change the password at any time, change the name, the drive letter assigned to it by the program, etc. This high level of flexibility ensures that you are always in control of your data and your safes, not Steganos.

Safes can be created locally in your workstation (as a virtual drive) or saved in a USB Flash drive or a recordable CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc, so that all your sensitive information always travels with you. The SelfSafe feature will let you group all your portable safes into one discreet executable. The program can encrypt and protect your information in the Cloud, too. Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, and MagentaCLOUD are fully supported.

This excellent virtual vault is safe enough to make you feel 100% secure about the privacy of your most sensitive data, and flexible enough to reassure you about who owns those data.
