Foolproof laptop encryption
I am looking for a simple foolproof laptop encryption method. It must run
under Win 98, Win 2000 and Win XP. There are thousands of products out there so
any advice would be welcome.
My advice is to use PGP. In the interests of full disclosure, I used to be the
CTO there. I think it's a fine product. Yes, I know Network Associates has
put it into limbo. It will come out of limbo. You can still find versions of
it stores or on the Web. Last week, it was the #4 best selling software
product on Amazon. Not bad for something in limbo.
