Steganos Data Safe

Personal data should never fall into the hands of unauthorized persons. A motto that has always been true and has become increasingly important online, especially in recent years. We spend more and more time in the digital world. We upload files to portals and our accounts, download images for inspiration and important documents for research. The daily exchange of data is immense, and so data protection on the web is also steadily gaining in importance.

What used to be stored in folders, in files or in archives now has turned into digital files on PCs, laptops or smartphones. However, anyone who is permanently connected to the internet at many different, sometimes public, locations also risks unintentional data theft. This is similar to what can happen with physical valuables, for example, in a hotel or vacation home. Do you keep your valuables in a safe there? Then you should do the same with documents, personal records or bank data in the digital realm.

In addition, some also prefer to store their sensitive data on storage media, such as USB sticks or hard drives, for security. These backups can prevent accidental deletion, but as soon as the storage medium is connected to a device with an internet connection, data theft and espionage are possible again.

With Steganos Data Safe, you can set up a digital data safe in no time at all and keep all your documents there safely. Thanks to highly secure encryption and two-factor authentication of your various safes, thieves and snoops have no access whatsoever. Only you can access your archived documents. Security the way it should be.

FAQ and useful information

Which files should be encrypted?

In short, all data that should not fall into the hands of unauthorized persons. This includes personal documents, account details and TAN lists, as well as invoices and other financial data. But also work-related content that is stored locally, such as customer data or invoices. Caution. If you are careless, you risk data abuse by hackers and snoops without realizing it.

How is data protected by encryption?

During encryption, data is automatically encoded in such a way that it can no longer be read by third parties. Plain text is translated into cipher text. Only those who can authenticate themselves as the owner of the data with a password can access the original data and documents. So you alone hold the key to your data.

Why should I encrypt data?

At the latest since the introduction of the GDPR, data protection has become an important topic not only within the legal framework. Due to the significant increase in work from home, the topic of data encryption has become an international trend, in private life as well as in companies. Since the increase in work from home due to the Corona crisis, attacks by hackers and data snoops on private computers have increased dramatically. This is also because many users store their data unencrypted on their computers. As the amount of digital data continues to increase, it should always be encrypted in the best possible way.

Can encrypted data be hacked?

No. The highly secure 384-bit AES-XEX encryption (IEEE P1619) with AES-NI hardware acceleration used by Steganos Data Safe keeps your data safe from hackers. No matter whether on PCs, in networks or in the cloud.
