[prMac.com] Adelaide, Australia - Lava Software is now shipping PasswordVault v7.0, a top-rated password manager which automates website logins and helps users organize and secure their passwords, web bookmarks and textclip library across multiple computers. Its unique futureproof design helps users import and consolidate their data, and it works with all web browsers on Windows, MacOS X and Linux. It's very easy to use, but includes powerful features for advanced users and organizations. Home users, businesses, banks, corporations and major sites like The University of Illinois use PasswordVault. This new version is a free upgrade for all existing users.
PasswordVault v7.0 adds comprehensive web bookmark management for 1000s of bookmarks, imports web bookmarks from most browsers, adds a textclip library function (for building standardized emails), generates various types of passwords directly in the 'Add Service' dialog, provides a number of sorting methods for displayed services, adds powerful drag-and-drop addition of web bookmarks and textclips, includes an optimized button layout, offers a simplified menu layout, updated help tags and help messages, and vastly reduces startup and import times.
Standard features in PasswordVault include two-click logins on websites, very strong 896-bit Blowfish encryption, online synchronization (with an additional layer of 128-bit AES encryption), a unique Master Password Recovery System (MPRS), random password generator, auto-lock timer (with clipboard clear), very powerful import and export functions (for easy backup and transfer), masked passwords, user defined service categories, editable notes, selectable skins, detailed reports after portable/desktop sync, and enhanced support for use in large organizations (The University of Illinois purchased site licenses of PasswordVault for their campuses at Urbana-Champaign, Chicago and Springfield). The portable version (bundled free with the desktop version) runs directly off USB flash drives and iPods, providing users with secure access to their data when they're on the road, as well as the convenience of auto-synchronization when they return to their desktop computer.
The Professional Edition offers additional features for password management and control within organizations, including secure auto-distribution (via shared network drives on LANs or via Web server URLs), secure multi-user password synchronization, and logging of auto-exports and auto-import service changes. It provides a simple but powerful cross-platform enterprise-level password management solution for companies, schools, universities and other organizations. The auto-distribution system is very flexible. For example, it can ensure a group of normal users always have the latest passwords managed by a privileged user, it can keep passwords in selected categories synchronized between a group of users, or it can synchronize privileged users and propagate changes to normal users.
The free Lite Edition of PasswordVault (available for immediate download from the Lava Software website) supports up to 25 services and includes a 30 day trial of auto-distribution, whilst the Standard and Professional Editions support any number of services. PasswordVault Std is priced at $19.95 (USD), and the 5-user pack of PasswordVault Pro is $59.00 (USD). Other Pro Edition pack sizes are also available for larger businesses and organizations, such as the 20 user pack for $179.00 (USD), the 50 user pack for $329.00 (USD), and the 100 user pack for $499.00 (USD).
