September 14, 2010Do laptop encryption programs like ZoneAlarm Datalock, really protect the data and files on your laptop from a thief being able to access the data and use it for id thief or put it on the web for all to download?
I am traveling more, and if my laptop gets stolen, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want my data to be readable. I think ZoneAlarms Datalock laptop data encryption software, looks like it does that.
It does a pre-boot authentication with a password, to prevent access to boot anything. This seems to be a general deterrent for non-technical users, correct?
Still, Datalock encrypts all the data going on the hard drive, so it they can read the drive, they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t decode the encryption, correct?
What kind of encryption does Datalock use? Is it strong or maybe unbreakable is a better word?
