Vernon, BC, November 30, 2011 -- Zecurex, the leader in anonymous key encryption technologies, today announced the launch of ZecurePC, a high-strength security application that encrypts Google Docs as well as any file on a Microsoft Windows computer. A dynamic safe deposit box for files and personal information, ZecurePC encrypts Google Docs and securely stores and manages PC-based documents, rendering encrypted files completely private and confidential.
While there are many encryption programs, ZecurePC employs the strongest level of encryption available commercially. The encryption kernel was originally developed for use by the US Department of Defense. In addition to protecting files stored locally on a PC, ZecurePC integrates with Google Docs to allow Google Docs users to store encrypted files in the cloud.
"With privacy paramount, few people have adopted cloud-based document storage and sharing for their sensitive information because these systems are insecure -- until now," said Lynn Spraggs, president of Zecurex. "With ZecurePC, professionals and non-professionals alike can protect information, eliminate risk and at the same time take advantage of the power of remote document storage systems like Google Docs."
ZecurePC replaces the Microsoft Windows Explorer file manager, with all the same functionality, adding security features to allow users to safely store and manage sensitive documents of any kind. The file manager automatically creates a link to a user's Google Docs account and integrates a Google Docs folder into the library structure.
Secure Google Docs
Users can safely store sensitive documents in the cloud using ZecurePC. The only one who can access ZecurePC google documents is the user who stored them in the cloud. Secure Google Doc files can be accessed from anywhere -- even through public networks at coffee shops, without threat of unwanted access.
Drag and Drop Encryption
ZecurePC allows users to easily and rapidly encrypt and decrypt files, including any document type, contacts, calendar details, programs -- anything digitally stored on a computer, or on Google Docs.
Microsoft Office Integration
ZecurePC works with Microsoft Office. When a user opens a ZecurePC encrypted file it automatically launches the corresponding Microsoft Office application and decrypts the file. ZecurePC automatically encrypts and replaces the last version on save. All temporary files associated with the file are deleted and shredded.
ZecurePC works with all versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Availability and Pricing
ZecurePC is available November 30, 2011. Download a free 60 day evaluation copy from www.zecurex.com. Single copy, $49.95 Educational, Non-Profit and Corporate licenses available.
Breaking into an encrypted ZecurePC file is theoretically not possible given current computing power. If every person on earth used the most powerful computer in existence enhanced by 1,000 times and if those computers all worked together, it would take over a billion years to break into a ZecurePC file. Zecurex uses Anonymous Key Technology, a patented method of securing communications and data storage that is significantly more secure than prevalent systems based on the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
Zecurex was founded by a mathematician who worked at the Stanford Research Institute while the original DARPA-Net (the progenitor of the Internet) was being designed. The goal was simple: to create an affordable, low-bandwidth, bullet-proof method for encrypting digital information traveling across the public Internet or over a private network, as well as data residing on servers or individual computers. Originally designed for use within the U.S. Government and U.S. Military agencies, Zecurex products meet the stringent U.S., Canadian and British Government specifications for transferring sensitive information.
