Confidential documents, business records and TAN lists all belong in a safe place. Steganos Safe 19 is a digital vault that protects everything you don’t want anyone else to see.

The clearly structured new user interface ensures that this highly professional security software package is intuitive and very easy to use.

Data protection made in Germany – with the click of a button
Steganos Safe 19 protects all types of sensitive data on your PC, in networks, or in the cloud thanks to state-of-the-art 384-bit AES-XES encryption with NI-Hardware acceleration.

For over a decade, Steganos has been synonymous with reliable protection against data snoops and hackers. Since Steganos was founded, the encryption used in its software has never been cracked. There are no back doors, and Steganos has no master passwords

Why Steganos?
Most encryption tools would help with encrypting files, ensuring nobody has access to them. Steganos goes the extra mile. Steganos Safe doesn’t just encrypt files, it makes them hidden so that nobody would be able to tell where the files are saved talkless making it significantly harder to track and break into the encrypted system.

Besides hiding encrypted files, it also cleans up footprints of any deleted file. This ensures that the deleted files can’t be retrieved using any data recovery mechanism.

Steganos Safe also implements Two-Factor Authentication, as you can use any software that supports Time-based One Time Password and link it to the application by entering the code returned after scanning the QR code.

Steganos is usually a Premium / Paid offering - offering much more functionality and reliability over Bitlocker and its competitors - you get what YOU USUALLY PAY FOR! - it is really worth the price when you really have some critical data that must be kept safe

  • AES-XEX encryption with 384 bits (IEEE P1619) with NI-hardware acceleration for optimal protection against thieves, snoops, and intelligence services
  • USB stick as safe key: once ejected, the virtual vault closes and the sensitive data is protected
  • Easily configure safes in your home network
  • Backup Assistant, to ensure that safes are secured on backup media
  • Optimized Portable Safes for USB flash drives, CD, DVD or Blu-ray Disc
  • The unlocked safe seamlessly integrates itself in Windows as a disk drive and can be used from within any application

Encryption is not something you want to be trusting to free giveaways in a different language.

You want something that'll still be available in five years time when your computer goes belly up and you have to grab another copy of the software to decrypt the data on your hard drive on your new computer.

Yes but who owns/holds the private encryption key to decrypt the data? If it's held on their servers and they go bust. How are you going to retrieve the decryption key to access your data?

"There are no back doors, and Steganos has no master passwords and don't store any encryption keys"... for external parties to target & attack.

Just don't forget your password and if chosen - Two Factor Authentication
I have been using Steganos Encryption for years as it offers a staggering AES-XEX encryption with 384 bits (IEEE P1619).
We use it for highly secure data.

Steganos have been around for years, reputable German company. The information they have in respect to this software is a bit sparse. I think you use a usb drive as key to unlock, you create the key using this software. I guess if there is Windows update that break the freebie version you would be left to purchase a license

Agreed Steganos are a reputable company in this field and have been around since I can remember. We use this software at work so was pretty surprised when I found the freebie in one of their blogs.

Regarding Windows update possibly trashing the install, just install it again and use the licence key to activate again. This is a lifetime key.

Yes that's a 'false positive', Windows Defender Smart Screen is correct this software has 'characteristics' which are similar to malicious applications, e.g. encryption and ability to modify the hard drive and portable storage devices.

What's the benefit of this over Bitlocker?

What's the benefit of this over Bitlocker?


Two reasons immediately come to mind, ...

1. Encryption Strength: Steganos offers encryption strength up top a staggering AES-XEX encryption with 384 bits (IEEE P1619), whereas Bitlocker only offers up to 256 AES encrytion strength.

2. Hardware Requirements: Regardless of Windows version on your computer, Bitlocker only works if your PC has a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) integrated which is used to generate strong, random encryption keys. Bitlocker doesn't require this.

--== MICROSOFT BITLOCKER ==--
Pros
  • Seamless experience on Windows
  • Strong encryption
  • Free to use
Cons
  • Only works on a few version of Windows
  • Only works on a computer with a TPM

STEGANOS

Steganos Safe doesn’t just encrypt files, it makes them hidden so that nobody would be able to tell where the files are saved talkless making it significantly harder to track and break into the encrypted system.

Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Two Factor Authentication
  • Hiding of encrypted files
  • Removes footprints of deleted files
  • Doesn't require hardware TPM tneeded to encrypt.
Cons
  • Paid Premium software
  • Encrypted files can only be transferred to computers with Steganos Safe installed

I'd recommend downloading and registering regardless, whilst it remains FREE - this software is absolutely awesome!

Sold! Thanks for the detailed information.

Edit: Having trouble locating this free product on their site using Safari. Didn’t help that it was all in German. Signed up to the newsletter and have since managed to change the displayed language to English (U.S.) but cannot find Steganos Safe 19.

@antdav - some help, please?
