Folder Castle 4.1 has been released
MagneticSoft announces the availability of Folder Castle 4.1, the major update of the popular security tool for protecting
computer files and folders from snoops and thieves. The newest version
allows you to quickly hide/unhide your all favorite folders and files
through one command.
Folder Castle Gets A New Layer Of Protection For Networks
The newest version of a popular security tool from MagneticSoft enables
complete protection of private files in the folders users share on the
home, campus or corporate networks.
October 23, 2008 - MagneticSoft today announces the
availability of Folder Castle 4.0, the major update of
the popular security tool for protecting computer files and folders
from snoops and thieves.
In version 4.0, MagneticSoft has introduced an additional layer of
protection against network snoops. Now users can be sure no one can
ever see their hidden files if they are stored in shared folders, for
example, My Documents. The other major change is an automatic check for
updates. When this option is enabled, the program will go online to
check for a new update automatically. Checks can be set to run every
day, week or month. If an update is available, the user clicks the
Download button and downloads the installer. Additionally, one can
check for an update manually at any time.
Folder Castle lets the user conceal personal folders
or files so that other people who can log on the same computer do not
have any idea that something is hidden away. In case of confidential
or particularly sensitive documents, the program allows the user to go
one step further and drag and drop files into a secure locker, which
works as a mountable virtual drive with on-the-fly 256-bit AES
encryption. This locker can be created anywhere on the local hard
drive, or a USB stick if one wants to take the files with him to the
office or any other place he is going to. Once the files are in the
locker, they cannot be seen or accessed unless the user provides a
Who can benefit from Folder Castle?
Folder Castle can benefit almost anyone who has to
share the computer with other people and wants to keep some files
private. The following is a short overview of its benefits for
Students. Most students live with one or two
roommates in an apartment or dorm. That's not to mention about many
other people who visit them, their roommates or simply hang around.
Besides, most campuses have a local network, so that students can
browse the Web, chat, play and share local resources with each other.
Roommates and campus networks often represent a security threat - some
geek may get access to the computer of the victim to snoop around for
personal information. Therefore, it's a good idea to use Folder
Castle to protect private documents, photos and video from
Office workers. Protection of confidential
documents is the important first step in keeping the computer safe at
work. The biggest risk comes from co-workers who share the same
computer and the IT people charged with maintaining a corporate
computer system. Folder Castle installed on the
office machine will prevent co-workers, IT people or anyone else
with a physical access to the computer or the administrative password
from browsing through the sensitive files, documents, or projects.
This data could be stolen or used against the owner if it remains
unprotected on a shared corporate computer.
Home users. Home computers often become a target
of hacker attacks. Anything of value is for grabs - financial
information, bank account details, personal letters and even more
intimate data like private photos and video. Then there are kids and
spouses who may accidentally stumble on some personal files they are
not supposed to see. Folder Castle is the best way
to ensure that sensitive and confidential information will not fall
into the wrong hands. In just a few clicks, one can hide and encrypt
personal data so that no one finds it. It'll safeguard the user from
the pain of discovery and restore his peace of mind.
Available now, Folder Castle costs $39.95 (USD).
A free trial is available.
