SecurSurf becomes SurfSolo

To avoid name conflicts with other vendors, the SecurStar product SecurSurf has been renamed into SurfSolo. The old product features and service remains the same in SurfSolo as they where in SecurSurf.

SurfSolo is an effective solution to encrypt the online traffic and stay completely anonymous online by changing your IP address. More information about SurfSolo can be found here http://www.securstar.com/products_ssurf.php

Note: In Germany, the company SecuLution GmbH (www.seculution.de) sells a product named SecuSurf. This product is in NO WAY RELATED to our old product SecurSurf or with new product SurfSolo. Both companies are completely INDEPENDENT to each other and the name similarity is absolutely casual.

DCPP 3.8 released

We are happy to announce that a newer version of DriveCrypt Plus Pack, version 3.8 has now been released. With this latest version, we have added Windows hibernation support and have ensured that both the hibernation and disk dump files are securely protected and encrypted at all times. DCPP 3.8 also fixes some bugs which arose in version 3.5, so therefore we highly recommend that you upgrade your 3.5 version to our new release of the software. How to upgrade: All customers that are currently using DCPP 3.5 can simply download and install the new version on top of the old one without the need to decrypt any disks, or uninstall the older DCPP version 3.5 If you are using a version older then 3.5, then please make sure you have a valid upgrade service in place (you purchased your original software version less then six months ago or you have purchased the upgrade service in the last 12 months). Then decrypt your operating system, remove bootauth, and uninstall the old version by resetting the license key on the server so a new key can be generated for the new version. (see the user manual for more information's on how to migrate a license)

ShareCrypt 2.1 Released

We are pleased to inform that SecurStar just released to the public ShareCrypt.

ShareCrypt is a disk, file and folder encryption software able to encrypt data on a shared network drive or folder, allowing simultaneous multiple users accesses the encrypted data.

ShareCrypt is a client-based solution; this means that the software is only installed on the client machine from where the data should be accessed. Nothing needs to be installed on the server.

ShareCrypt allows specifying all the users (and correspondent passwords) that are allowed to access the encrypted data. Users can be added and removed at any later time.

The data on the server are visible to the system administrator that has the possibility to back them up as if he where working with unencrypted data, however he will not have access to the actual confidential content of the files unless he also where granted the permission to do so.

ShareCrypt is the ideal solution to protect shared files and folders on a network environment and its encryption can be used alone or in combination with DriveCrypt or DriveCrypt plus pack.

As an introductory price and for a limited time only, ShareCrypt is sold for only Euro 39.95

DCPP 3.0 Released

This version introduces a new milestone for disk encryption software: As first encryption software in the world, DCPP now allows to hide your entire operating system inside the free disk space of another operating system. With DCPP you can now hide your entire operating system, this means you can now define two passwords for your computer: One password is for the visible operating system, the other for the invisible one. The first "fake" password gives you access to a pre-configured operating system (outer OS), while the other gives you access to your real working operating system. This functionality is extremely useful if you fear that someone may force you to provide the DCPP password; in this case, you simply give away the first (fake) password so that your attacker will be able to boot your system, but only see the prepared information that you want him to find. The attacker will not be able to see any confidential and personal data and he will also not be able to understand that the machine is storing one more hidden operating system. On the other hand, if you enter your private password (for the invisible disk), your system will boot a different operating system (your working system) giving you access to all your confidential data.
