Suffering a computer theft has a big cost and not just the money you spent on it or the money to replace it. Your documents are probably more important to you or your company. The loss of customer records, business strategies, financial or technical top secret documents may result in huge losses for your business.
When securing our computers, we focus our attention on configuring firewalls, anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. However, many people overlook the risk of computer theft and forget to take precautions against this type of attack – such as installing a computer theft protection software.
Computer theft doesn’t mean only hardware theft, but also data theft by people who have physical access to your computer, and can just plug in an USB drive and take your files. Image what would happen if your competitors would know your key strategies, customer lists, trade secrets, and then take actions that would harm your business.
So how can you protect against computer theft and data theft?
The best solution is to install a protection software and encrypt all your confidential documents, so in case of a computer theft incident, your important files cannot be used by anyone else. east-tec SafeBit will create virtual encrypted vaults where you can place your files, and keep them encrypted all the time. When you work with the files you will have to know the password to open the vault. When you leave your computer, east-tec SafeBit determines the computer is idle and will close the safe automatically, protecting you against data theft. east-tec SafeBit uses strong encryption algorithms so even in case of a hard-drive theft it will take thousands of years for someone to break it using a brute-force attack.
