Safety in Encryption

Have you ever tried communicating in encrypted messages? Kinda like Nancy Drew on a mission or Sherlock Holmes. Ha? Okay, let's put it in a more comprehensive, understandable tone. What is encryption by the way? According to our dear friend Mr. Webster, and his cousin, Ms. Wikipedia, "encryption is the process of transforming information, which is referred to as plain text, using an algorithm, or also called as Cipher to make data unreadable to anyone except those possessing special knowledge, usually referred to as a key". The outcome of the process is encrypted information. One where in only a few are able to decipher, or to make known using some special formula. (We used to play this game back in grade school, lol..)

Now, if for example you have a business, and the business is thriving or doing well in lay man's term. There is now the great risk that someone from outside or even from inside your company who may be interested of the many important "secrets" to the success of your business. Of course, if they will know your formula for success, they will do what you have done in order to copy the process and become successful themselves. That's the reason why we have the anti piracy law or the copyright laws. To make certain that people will have only what's genuine to them and to the world.

So anyway, since we are now in the era of computers and the fast moving Internet media, chances are, it will be easier for hackers and big time scoundrels to take what's not rightfully theirs. And perhaps sell the data to a significant buyer or two. That soon will entail your loss and even the death of the company you have spent longs hours, weeks, months and years to cultivate for its growth and development. That will mean, bankruptcy or worse, you will have a heart attack...hmmm... let's just not think about such morbid thoughts. Just like what my OB always tells me, "prevention is better than cure". So today, I would like to share what I have gathered from a very interesting site I bumped into. But first let me ask you what the medium by which you carry or transport the said very important information about your company? Of course, with the PC and the Internet, we have the hard drive and of course our emails to protect. It's similar to putting up burglar alarms and security systems. Only this time it will be hard drive encryption as well as email encryption that we need to give focus to. If someone breaks in and is able to get your files, that's it---you're dead.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce, PGP Corporation. The leader in file encryption software for individuals and businesses. The company offers a full suite of encryption software which includes email encryption and hard drive encryption for Mac and PC laptops and desktops. Like what I said, it is similar to securing your investments by putting up alarm and security systems. If you wish to try their products, you can do so just follow this link.

PGP Corporation's thrust is protection for all sophisticated firewalled networks and device protection that will keep sensitive business data secure once it’s on the move. Only Enterprise Data Protection from PGP Corporation secures the data itself, wherever it goes.
