View and Encrypt Files Securely!
Austin TX, April 5, 1998 - Photodex Corporation and Authentex Corporation are proud to expand the previous OEM agreement by combining two products to create ViewSAFE for Windows NT and 95 . ViewSafe provides a high level of confidence and security for computer users wanting to view, manage, encrypt, and send a secure file to other users who don't need software to open it - just a password. ViewSafe from photodex combines the high performance viewing of CompuPic with the solid security of the DatasAFE Encrytion Molule by Authentex into one powerful multimedia utility optimized for Internet Web files.
Scott Schinlever, President & CEO of Photodex, comments, "We strive to continually develop innovative software solutions to help users manage graphics and now have developed a system, ViewSAFE where users can securely distribute their files using an intuitive interface Photodex is known for creating.
"We both recognize the need for information security and confidentiality for the individual dealing with graphic & multimedia files", says Dr. Howard H. Thaw, CEO and President of Authentex Software Corporation, "together with Photodex, we have created a simple and secure solution to meet the evolving needs of this ever-expanding market, ViewSAFE."
Installation of the ViewSAFE is under a minute and the intuitive interface of Photodex' CompuPic displays on the user's desktop with the new Encryption safe DataSAFE Encryption Module automatically adds a DataSAFE encryption option to the CompuPic tool bar. From within CompuPic, users simply select files to be encrypted, and click on the DataSAFE menu option to encrypt files using the BLOWFISH algorithm. Once encrypted the secured safe containing the selected files may be stored on the drive, diskette, or emailed / forwarded to any recipient; the recipient needs only the password to decrypt and access the files.
The DataSAFE Encryption Module for CompuPic will be available online February 19, 1998 through www.photodex.com . The module is only available through download from the Photodex site, and is a separately purchased module which works in conjunction with the CompuPic software. The module may be purchased online for $29.95 USD. The DataSAFE Encryption Module for CompuPic software adheres to the North American encryption standards and regulations.
