Driver-level encryption

SubRosaSoft today released , a utility that lets Mac users protect their data from unauthorized access. Delivering transparent strong encryption for Mac OS X, the application allows users to encrypt and decrypt files, as well as password protect hard disks, memory cards and other types of storage. CipherWorks 4.0 protects data at two levels: users can protect and hide your hard disks, portable drives, memory cards, and other types of storage as well as use CipherWorks to apply strong encryption to files and folders. The software is available on CD for $90 plus shipping or for $80 for electronic download.

Users can also permanently erase a file, a folder, the free space of a volume, or a complete drive in a secure manner, making it impossible for anyone to retrieve previously deleted files and folders. As the only driver-level encryption package for Mac OS X, CipherWorks provides security without using "disk image"-based encryption applications.

"Unlike disk image based encryption, CipherDisk encrypts every byte of data on the volume, so the whole volume is secured. Without your password, nobody can access your disk no matter what tools they use.... We live in a time where valid concerns are being raised regarding the privacy of your electronic data. Whether you are sending files to your coworkers, or storing files and folders on a network server, using CipherWorks protects your files from prying eyes."
