Data leak prevention is something you should take care of

March 4th, 2010

Have you ever faced the problem of data leakage? We are not taking about the cases when your college roommate looked through personal photos stored in your PC. When concerning business, data leakage can cause serious problems. If your competitors somehow gained access to commercial and confidential information then you are in a trouble. Sometimes, your competitors start acting exactly like you wanted to act. This means only one thing – your employees cheat on you.

Well, this is an emergency situation and you have to do something about it. You cannot control all employees, but you can scan their computers. But there are thousands of files stored there, and it will take ages to find confidential files in network computers.

Luckily, there is Show Hidden Files solution from AKS-LABS. Why hidden files? Password protected documents and archives are suspicious. Indeed, why set a password to a file? If an employee has done so, then he has something to conceal. Consequently, password protected files are among the most interesting for you.

Show Hidden Files scans folders and hard drives to find all files, documents and archives protected with password. Thus, you do not have to waste precious time looking through all files. Just use Show Hidden Files which will provide you with excellent search results.

The program is very simple and thus, can be used by a wide range of people with different experience in computers and IT technologies. All you have to do is to select a directory or a hard drive which you want to scan, and the program will do everything for you.

Sure, if you have additional information on the files and archives you may use it in search by date and size options. You can find these tabs right below Search in box. If you are interested in large files only (for instance you suspect that someone has shared presentation draft which is a large file) you can adjust search settings according to your needs and requirements. As a result you will have a list of password protected files larger than, for instance, 5MB.

If you are aware of the possible date on which files were created, modified or accessed, then search by date option can be quite helpful. You can choose certain periods of time or such an option as, for example, “files created in recent 2 months.”

When the search process is finish you can summarize results in the list of found files which Show Hidden Files will make for you.
