Thanks to Michael Shuler for this announcement. has made its flagship Virtual Private Disk product available on the Linux platform, and is pleased to announce free copies to the first 1000 users.

"VPDisk," said product manager Michael Shuler, "allows users to transparently access encrypted files as if they were in the clear..." "And user transparency," continued Michael, "is just the beginning. VPDisk is based on a patented design that makes it transparent to the administrators, to the filesystems, networks, and even to the operating system itself."

"I was blown away by its easiness," said Loc Tran who tried VPDisk the first time. "The software loads itself to the system and instantly makes encryption-on-the-fly to work on existing files." "It was so easy, I learned to use VPDisk in five minutes, and it was the first time I really feel safe about the (file) protection."

VPDisk is avaliable for Sun Solaris, Linux and FreeBSD platforms. Free evaluation copy available to download from the website. Visit for details.
