Linux File Encryption by Jetico Cares for Ultimate User Privacy


For privacy-minded Linux users, finding the best TrueCrypt alternative is now easier than ever as Jetico, developer of world-class data encryption software, has just updated BestCrypt Container Encryption to include Container Guard. This unique feature of Jetico's Linux file encryption protects container files from unauthorized or accidental commands, delivering added security and peace of mind.

"We need to be more vigilant with our sensitive data. Cyber-attacks are now constant, threats to privacy are increasing and more rigid regulations are looming, like the upcoming GDPR in Europe. Innovations in BestCrypt help users to relax - we care for their security throughout their encryption use," states Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman. "Our data protection mission at Jetico means caring for Linux users as well. With a growing desktop OS market share, the Linux community is worthy of our attention."

By monitoring file syste operations, Container Guard protects container files from unauthorized or accidental commands, such as copying, modification, moving, deletion, and re-encryption. Only users with the administrator password can disable Container Guard, bolstering the security of sensitive files.

The BestCrypt update also includes Resident mode, an automatic password prompt for mounting containers at startup. That same mode will dismount containers after a time period of inactivity as set by the user. While user-friendly and time-saving, these added features also provide an extra layer of protection when working on shared computers.

To summarize the value of Resident mode, Mr. Waksman comments, "Imagine you must leave your computer for an emergency. Most of the time, you'd remember to close and dismount the container. But in case you don't, BestCrypt will take care of it, so nothing gets compromised."


On your endpoints or in the cloud, data encrypted with BestCrypt can be accessed via Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android (News - Alert) devices. As a commercially maintained solution for Linux to encrypt file and folder selections, BestCrypt offers regular updates and professional technical support. To address any doubts about the trustworthiness of their solutions, Jetico publicly guarantees no backdoors or related vulnerabilities. In 2013, Jetico published source codes to support their claims.
