Encrypted web based safe for sensitive data

Steganos : 18 July, 2007  (New Product)
Online safe from Steganos allows data to be stored and encrypted over secure SSL link from anywhere in the world.
Steganos has launched Steganos OnlineSafe, a web-based service that enables users to encrypt and back up their vital data.

Data is encrypted using the 256 bit Advanced Encryption Standard and is sent to the Steganos server for storage using a 128 bit SSL link, which is the same type of connection used to protect e-commerce and internet banking activities from interception.

To access the data in the Steganos OnlineSafe, users simply enter the correct password and the content of the safe appears as a drive in Windows Explorer. The safe contents can be processed like normal Windows files, so users can add new information, change existing information or delete it from the safe. As soon as new data is added to the safe, it is encrypted and sent over the secure link to the Steganos server. When the Steganos OnlineSafe is closed, its drive disappears from Windows Explorer.

Data can be downloaded from Steganos OnlineSafe anywhere in the world, provided only that the user knows the correct password and can install the application software, which can be downloaded from the members' area of the Steganos website. Even if the data's original storage hardware should be lost or destroyed, the data can be easily recovered.

The data is encrypted before upload to the Steganos server and Steganos has no way to open the OnlineSafe. Customers can only access their data by entering the correct password. As with all Steganos encryption products, there is no way to recover data if users forget their passwords.

"Our desktop product Steganos Safe is famous for encrypting data on computers and portable storage devices. It stops data leaking into the wrong hands if the storage medium is lost or stolen," said Aston Fallen, CEO, Steganos. "With this release, Steganos ensures that the owner's most important data is not only protected against interception but can also be recovered by its owner if the original storage medium is lost. Irreplaceable digital photos, travel documents, private tax records and valuable insurance documents can now be protected from loss and destruction, and recovered wherever the owner can get internet access."

Steganos OnlineSafe is available now with a storage capacity of 500MB, 1GB or 10GB.


500 MB / month £3.95.
500 MB / year £39.95.
1GB / year £69.95.
10GB / year £169.95.
