PGP Corporation has released the latest version of its communications and disk encryption software, PGP Desktop. Version 10 adds support for Whole Disk Encryption and Boot Camp under Snow Leopard, optimization for solid state drives, new Hybrid Cryptographic Optimizer technology that results in enhanced run times, a refreshed interface, and expanded support for Smart Cards. Also, compliance is now ensured across any mixed-system environment (i.e., a network with users running Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows). To learn more about PGP Whole Disk Encryption, read Joe Kissell's article "Securing Your Disks with PGP Whole Disk Encryption," 31 October 2008. (PGP Desktop Professional [including Whole Disk Encryption], $239; PGP Desktop Email, $164; PGP Desktop Home, $99; PGP Whole Disk Encryption, $149; volume discounts available; free update to all users with subscription licenses or maintenance)
Mac OS X Services in Snow Leopard
Mac OS X Services let one application supply its powers to another; for example, a Grab service helps TextEdit paste a screenshot into a document. Most users either don't know that Services exist, because they're in an obscure hierarchical menu (ApplicationName > Services), or they mostly don't use them because there are so many of them.
Snow Leopard makes it easier for the uninitiated to utilize this feature; only services appropriate to the current context appear. And in addition to the hierarchical menu, services are discoverable as custom contextual menu items - Control-click in a TextEdit document to access the Grab service, for instance.
In addition, the revamped Keyboard preference pane lets you manage services for the first time ever. You can enable and disable them, and even change their keyboard shortcuts.
