Data Encryption with Encrypting File System ( EFS )

Data Encryption Software
Encrypting File System

IS Protector will protect your important data files even if someone removed your hard drive, flash or USB drive from your PC or tries to access your confidential files using another Operating System. All your sensitive data will be encrypted staying accessible by you only but useless for anybody else.

IS Protector uses Encrypting File System in addition to Permanent Data Termination. IS Protector ensures that your confidential information is protected even if your PC is disassembled and the hard drive removed, or another Operating System is used to access your hard drive.

What is EFS (Encrypting File System)?

The Encrypting File System (EFS) is a component of the NTFS file system on Windows 7, Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista. (Windows XP Home and WIndows Vista Home don't include EFS).

EFS enables transparent encryption and decryption of files by using advanced, standard cryptographic algorithms. Any individual or program cannot gain access to the encrypted data without the appropriate cryptographic key.

EFS has several advantages over traditional encryption techniques. EFS's encryption technology integrates into the file system, so users can't access the hard disk without going through the file system. EFS drivers run in kernel mode to provide better security. EFS is easy to manage and completely transparent to the user. A user can encrypt only those files or folders that need protection. Users who don't have the private key can't access the data. If encrypted files are moved they stay encrypted.
