Data security and backup

Data security and backups can be a pain for roving users using portable PCs but SecureTrieve is an attractive option. The system protects data stored on the PC using AES encryption and makes off-site backups through the web. Without the user's password, a thief can't easily see the encrypted files, and even if he can get at them, AES protects them. Meanwhile, the user can retrieve his valuable data from the off-site backup onto another machine. Combining this with PC Phone Home might even give the user a fighting chance of finding the stolen PC when it connects to the web.
