Mountain View, California (PressExposure) December 07, 2007 -- Leading password recovery company introduces a free encryption scanning tool
Passware Inc., the worldwide leader in recovery of lost passwords, today released Encryption Analyzer which has the ability to find all password protected files on any PC. Encryption Analyzer allows users to scan their computers fast and locate old, important, and password-protected files. In addition, Encryption Analyzer automatically launches a password recovery module in case a file password is lost.
Private files should be protected thoroughly and kept in the most hidden folders of computers. This is how the majority of people think, and they are absolutely right. But this can backfire when users come across old documents whose passwords have been long forgotten. The problem is more annoying if the need for this particular document is urgent. How can anyone be sure that he remembers passwords for all of his files, especially for documents that havenât been opened for a good while?
Software file formats are constantly changing, but it is possible to retrieve those old electronic diaries and other personal documents that were completely forgotten. Additionally, parents should be aware that their kids use passwords to protect their files.
A free check of protected files can disclose invaluable information. A full computer scan usually takes under an hour, and users will find it quick and easy to discover and unprotect their important files.
Standard version of Encryption Analyzer is totally free and can be downloaded at: http://www.lostpassword.com/encryption-analyzer.htm
Passware Inc. also offers a Professional version of Encryption Analyzer for $195, which scans systems over a network, includes a command-line mode, and saves detailed log files and MD5 hash values of protected files.
For software developers, Passware Inc. has released a .NET SDK, which allows using all the features of Encryption Analyzer Professional in their applications without any extra coding.
