If you are concerned with privacy online or frustrated of your mailbox is getting choked with numerous promotional e-mails, then there is good news for you. With Deadbolt LT you can secure your data and maintain privacy even when using services like Dropbox (News - Alert) and Gmail. The application is available for both Macintosh and Windows and can be downloaded from the rune.sg website for only $9.99 USD.
Deadbolt LT’s "Floating Toolbar" allows messages exchanged on social networks like Facebook (News - Alert) and LinkedIn to be made private from eavesdropping through a single click. Additionally, messages, documents, spreadsheets, photos, videos and address books, can be locked as needed. By using Deadbolt LT's easy to use key management tool, communication groups can be created on the fly, and users can distribute their public keys among individuals or groups by e-mailing it to them or by uploading that to a central server.
According to a press release, Deadbolt LT is based on OpenPGP, and complies with FIPS 140-2 standards to provide users an affordable, proven, standards-based encryption with great ease of use and flexibility. Due to its FIPS compliance, entities that are required to comply with FISMA (The US' Federal Information Security Management Act) can use Deadbolt LT to protect their sensitive information. Buyers of Deadbolt LT also have the option to upgrade to the full Deadbolt product that includes full unbreakable Vernam/One-Time Pad encryption using the Vema-Cipher platform.
"Deadbolt LT is designed for everyone who wants to keep private messages and documents just that... private," says Lance Gaines, president-CTO of Rune Information Security Corporation. "Hackers and data thieves are increasingly breaching perimeter systems. When they do get in, Deadbolt LT stops them from being able to easily read sensitive e-mail and files. Users can archive or share information with a select group of friends and colleagues, essentially making the messages 'eyes only'. Bottom line - protect the data so that it remains private, no matter where it travels."
