Today's Wall Street Journal reports a breach of Pentagon security caused by a USB drive. One of the bad guys was able to insert a USB drive into a government networked computer. The drive contained a program designed to grab files from the Government network and pass these along to the enemy. Those on the network who used My Data Guard would have had good protection. The bad guys would have had access to the My Data Guard files, just like other files, but since these are always encrypted, they would have then needed to break the encryption in order to access the contents. With a strong password this would be extremely difficult to do. The lesson? Always keep your most important data encrypted. My Data Guard keeps your data safe - always. Just as important - its easy to use, so you will actually use it.
