GiliSoft USB Stick Encryption can help you secure the files you store on your memory stick or card. It is a good thing that you don't have to protect the entire storage space, which means that you can save both public and private information on the same device. Fortunately, the information will be encrypted using such a strong algorithm as 256-bit AES.

Using the tool is actually very easy as all it requires is selecting a file system, entering a password and moving the slider to the percentage of the available storage area you want to secure. After that, you can save your files on the protected partition just as you usually do. When you create the new space, a file named “agent.exe” will be copied to your memory stick. This allows you to open the protected partition on any computer even if Gilisoft USB Stick Protection is not installed; just open agent.exe and type the password.

To conclude, GiliSoft USB Stick Encryption is an excellent solution to keep the sensitive information on your storage device protected from intruders. One absolute advantage is that you don't have to encrypt all the space. Unfortunately, it only works on external memory storage devices. I suggest that you also take a look at other similar tools that allow securing a given folder.
