CE-Secure is an easy to use data encryption program that offers the maximum protection provided by AES256 bit encryption algorithms. With CE-Secure you can create encrypted zones in the unused portion of your hard drive or other data storage devices. These encrypted zones can then be used to securely store your sensitive or private documents, photos, music or videos. In CE-Secure each of these encrypted zones is referred to as a Vault and as with a true physical Vault, you need the keys or combination to open the Vault and gain access to the contents. Each CE-Secure Vault can be as large as 4GB.
CE-Secure allows you to create as many encrypted Vaults as you choose. You are limited only by the available capacity remaining on the selected storage device. For instance, if you are creating an encrypted Vault on an external flash drive that has a total capacity of 500MB and already has 200MB of data on the device, you can create a single Vault of 300MB (500MB total capacity minus 200MB of existing data) or you can create multiple Vaults which total 300MB.
Vaults can be created on almost any data storage device connected to your system. This includes the main system hard drive of your computer, other hard drives inside your computer, external hard drives (connected via USB 2.0, FireWire, e-SATA or PCMCIA), and USB solid-state flash cards or thumb drives. Provided you are using Windows Vista or XP, you can even copy an encrypted Vault to CD or DVD media for archiving - and it's still encrypted! As an added advantage, small-encrypted Vaults, when locked, can be attached to email and sent to others who have the CE-Secure application (check on the size limitations of attachments for your particular email application). Simply have an agreed upon pass phrase between sender and receiver or send a separate email with the pass phrase included to the receiver.
When data resides within the encrypted Vault, it is safe from prying eyes. With support for strong pass phrases of up to 64 characters, CE-Secure offers its user the opportunity to insure that unauthorized individuals while still offering maximum ease of use to the Vaults rightful owner cannot access important or critical data. When the proper pass phrase is given to the program, the encrypted Vault is opened and data within that Vault is completely available to the user, appearing as a drive letter within My Computer or explorer. Just use the data exactly as you normally would if it were not encrypted. Because CE-Secure is a continuous encryption application, the actual data within your encrypted Vault is never unencrypted within the Vault - only in the memory of the host system.
