Innersafe for Palm Desktop

InnersafeIt's funny how old articles can have an impact on people many years later.

About month or so ago I received a very nice email from Richard Amacker, CEO of Innersafe Corporation, a data security company. Richard emailed that he had been inspired to create Innersafe for Palm Desktop partly because of an article from The Palm Tipsheet issue 5, February 2000, called Palm Security.

Here was the paragraph that inspired Richard:

Another problem with the standard Palm security feature is that your user files — while marked private — can be accessed and read if copied from your Mac or PC. While the files marked 'private' are not visible in your desktop application, they can be accessed via your user data files. This data can be viewed with any text editor.

Richard says this flaw I'd mentioned about the stock Palm Desktop, encouraged him to develop Innersafe for Palm Desktop an add-on module that secures Palm Desktop data files (Datebook, Address Book, To-Dos, Memos) on Windows PCs.

I was amazed that an old article from an obscure e-zine could have such an impact 6 years later. I'm very pleased to have helped encourage the development of this critical Windows security tool.

To learn more about Innersafe for Palm Desktop, be sure to check out the videos Richard has created, showing just how insecure the standard Palm Desktop is, and how much more secure Innersafe can make Palm Desktop files for Windows PC users.

If you're a Palm user who syncs to a Windows machine, this $40 add-on could save your bacon, especially if you use Windows and Palm Desktop on a notebook PC.

Now I need to convince Richard to create Innersafe for Mac Palm Desktop! :-)
