Your data is safe!

Strong encryption:
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encrypts your data with one of the strongest encryption standards available today. Your data is safe from hackers using Internet based tools to try to read your MyDataGuard file's information, and from a notebook thief who might try to steal your private information.

Transfer your data

Share your data between computers:
Transfer your personal data files between two computers easily using the import / export feature. This allows you to take your data with you between office and home, and on the road!

Stored locally.

Your data stays with you:
You control your personal data. No need to get on the internet; no need to place your trust in an outside server or a third party. Internet or no internet, you will always have access to your personal data.

Secure Mode

Automatic Protection:
If you leave your desk with your data visible, after a period of minutes that you specify, the program will hide your data from view. Once you return simply re-enter your password to view your data once again.

Save Alert

Reminds you to save:
If you've made any edits to your data but have not saved them, you'll be asked by the program if you'd like to save whenever you exit. You will never make changes to your data and lose them unintentionally.

Backup Alert

Reminds you to backup:
If you've made any edits to your data and have not backed your data up, you'll be asked by the program if you'd like to do so on exit. A backup copy gives you the additional security against any loss of your data due to computer problems.

Send Encrypted Messages

Send an encrypted message file to a friend:
All they'll need to decrypt the message is the file's password and a copy of the free trial version of the program. With an agreed upon password you can exchange messages with complete confidentiality.

Help always Available.

Built in help:
Help is only a click away. The program includes a detailed help file that you can access at any time. If you need additional help use the resources on this web site or contact us by email.


Your encrypted data

What is Encryption?

Encryption is the process of changing data into a form that can be read only by the intended receiver. To decipher the message, the receiver of the encrypted data must have the proper decryption key (password).

Only your password in combination with a copy the the MyDataGuard program, can unlock your data. Otherwise, all that can be seen are scrambled symbols as shown above.


About AES:
AES provides strong encryption and has been selected by NIST as a Federal Information Processing Standard in November 2001 (FIPS-197), and in June 2003 the U.S. Government (NSA) announced that AES is secure enough to protect classified information up to the TOP SECRET level, which is the highest security level and defined as information which would cause "exceptionally grave damage" to national security if disclosed to the public.
