Protecting data online as well as that on laptops and desktop computers has become an important task these days. Your confidential data on the laptop or PC can be easily copied using a flash drive, portable USB storage devices, bluetooth etc. especially if you leave the PC / Laptop unattended or if your password gets inadvertently disclosed.
Insta-LockDown makes it possible for you to prevent the copying of data from your laptop using the external storage devices and smart phones. Insta-LockDown also ensures that data from your laptop cannot be sent via web mails as file attachments.
What can Insta-LockDown offer?
When you install Insta-LockDown, the data protection feature is initiated with a keyboard shortcut. This is a personal data protection software which lets you lock all commonly used channels through which others can access and copy your data. This is a perfect software for single users and small offices to prevent the loss of data.
The software locks the use of external USB storage devices such as media players, flash drives, pen drives and mobile phones. It also blocks the use of modems or data cards to access the internet. Data cannot be transferred through bluetooth or wireless networks either. Also, this practical software program restricts the attachment of content through popular email services such as Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail.
Functionality and compatibility
Though complex in functionality, Insta-LockDown is very simple to use. The software offers a considerably good level of data protection. A simple keystroke combination and a password allows you to operate and configure the software. The software runs in the background and you need not worry about the use of the important resources of the system.
The protection cannot be bypassed easily and it is evident that the high end data protection is possible for the common user. The software has a minimum operating requirement of 512 MB RAM, P3 processor or higher, and HDD space of 10 MB.
