- New easy-to-use mobile data security offering provides vital protection -
23 March, 2009 - Steganos, an expert in encryption and privacy software, has launched Steganos Privacy Suite™ Mobile, a data protection package that quickly, safely and comprehensively protects the privacy of smartphone, PDA and Pocket PC users including private data such as passwords, e-mails and photos.
Steganos Privacy Suite Mobile was shown on Microsoft-based smartphones at the Microsoft booth at this year’s CeBIT show with positive consumer reactions. It is available now for £35.95 UKP at http://www.steganos.com/en/products/secure-travel/privacy-su...
In figures released this month analyst firm Gartner Group stated that global smartphone sales for 2008 reached 139.3 million units, a rise of 13.9 percent on the previous year.
“With an estimated 70 percent of owners of portable devices failing to adequately protect their data against data theft , consumers risk privacy and data loss through mobile devices including smartphones, PDAs and Pocket PCs,” said Michael Marzy, CEO, Steganos. “Many users simply don’t consider what will happen to their e-mails, texts, photos, movies, and contact details when a portable device gets lost.”
It is estimated in the USA alone more than 10 million smartphones and PDAs will be stolen in 2009 - a figure that doesn’t even cover the number of devices that are simply lost. With unrestricted access to your information, the person that finds (or steals) a device can inflict serious financial and emotional damage.
The suite has a raft of features and components to ensure protection against unauthorized users. User-friendly and simple to install and use it has intuitive handling, touch screen support, highly secure encryption, and integrated protection against weak passwords.
The suite’s ‘all-in-one’ protection guards all data, including e-mails and contacts against unauthorized use with Steganos Safe Mobile which ensures there is no access without a password.
Steganos Shredder Mobile destroys old and previously deleted data permanently, and prevents any retrieval with data recovery software. Steganos Password Manager Mobile creates, encrypts and administrates passwords and login codes. And Bluetooth PhoneLock™ provides additional smartphone protection against unauthorized users.
