BestCrypt: Cross-Platform Filesystem Encryption
My evaluation of this product has centered on functionality, usability, Linux-friendliness, support for algorithms I like and trust, and of course, overall polish. I think BestCrypt succeeds on all those counts, and based on the consistently high quality of Jetico's software in those areas, I'm willing to believe that their cryptographic implementations are equally meticulous and well executed.
In conclusion, BestCrypt is an impressive product. If stability, comprehensive and modular support for a variety of popular encryption algorithms, and overall tightness are anything to go by, it seems to be highly secure as well. I enthusiastically recommend considering BestCrypt for your filesystem encryption needs, especially if you use both Linux and Windows. It's helped restore some of my hope for a more crypto-enabled populace and has been fun to play with, too.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
