Securely Store Sensitive Information on a Pocket PC with Data Armor

by Reads (9,307)

Pocket Watch Software has released DataArmor, a system for securely storing sensitive data on a Windows Mobile handheld.

This software lets users lock and protect important data, and helps protect them from identity and information thieves.

To be sure the information is kept secure, DataArmor uses some of the strongest encryption methods in the industry, including 64 Bit DES, 128 Bit RC2, and 192 Bit Triple DES.

It can turn an SD or CompactFlash card into a key that must be inserted into the Windows Mobile device to unlock your sensitive data.

A tactic commonly used by software companies to prevent software piracy is to lock a serial number to a unique CPU on a computer. With DataArmor, users can employ this same tactic to lock their sensitive information to a single device.

This application’s Custom Lock System uses a unique file to encrypt one person’s data differently than anyone else’s.

There are three versions of this software. DataArmor Wallet Edition ($29.95) offers basic text based data encryption, while DataArmor Standard Edition ($39.95) adds the ability to encrypt any of the files on the Pocket PC. In addition to all the features in the other two versions, DataArmor Professional Edition ($49.95) lets users take secure handwritten notes, or securely record their voice
