How to Password Protect & Encrypt Your Business Files

There are more and more data-leak scare stories appearing every day – it seems to affect all sizes of business – from small to large. But if even giants like Yahoo, with their large IT infrastructure and countless IT specialists cannot keep their customer data save, how can a small business hope to achieve this? Fortunately, a new software application – Safeplicity – has been released to address this problem.

How it works

Safeplicity is a new data encryption product that allows you to password protect folders on your computer in just a few clicks – it doesn’t require any IT skills whatsoever and is dead-simple to use.

SafeplicitySafeplicity is integrated right into Windows Explorer. To password-protect a folder, you simply right click on the folder you wish to protect, select the option “protect with password” and choose a password. That’s it. The folder is now password protected, and all data inside of it will be encrypted with military-grade AES 256bit encryption. This encryption happens in the background, so you don’t need to wait and you can continue working on the files whilst it is in progress.

After protecting the folder, you can continue using it as usual – with one difference: if you try to open the folder, you are now asked for a password. If you don’t enter the correct password, the folder will appear empty, so no one can get access to your confidential data. If you enter the correct password, your data will and you can use your files right away, without any delays.
