* Steganos’s first online service enables users to easily and securely surf the web anonymously, without installing software *

28 March 2006 - Steganos, European leader in security and privacy software for consumers and SMEs, has launched Steganos Internet Anonym Online. It enables users to surf the internet anonymously - whether they are at home, work or in an internet cafe – without installing any software. This is Steganos’s first online service.

With each visit to a website, a user is exposed to privacy threats and behaviour tracking. With Steganos Internet Anonym Online, users are protected from profiling and from their access being traced back to their computer or ISP accounts.

To use Steganos Internet Anonym Online, the user just calls up a special page on the Steganos website and activates a toolbar. The website address is entered into the toolbar, and the Steganos server fetches the webpages anonymously and without any loss of speed.

The user’s IP address is hidden and cookies and malware scripts are automatically filtered out. The connection between the user’s computer and the Steganos server is encrypted using SSL, and the software also supports secure websites so that ecommerce sites including Amazon and Ebay can be browsed privately. Users can also search Google through the toolbar, confident their anonymity is protected.

Steganos Internet Anonym Online can be used by subscribers on any computer they use and with any browser.

Users can test the tool for free for one week and subscribe for a year for £34.95.

Steganos also produces Steganos Internet Anonym 2006, an installed application that protects the user by hiding his or her IP address, securely deleting history traces, filtering privacy-threatening web content and pop-ups, securely deleting unwanted files, password-protecting favourites lists and enabling anonymous file uploads and downloads on FTP servers.

Pricing and Availability

Steganos Internet Anonym Online costs £34.95 for a year.

Steganos Internet Anonym Online is available now at www.steganos.com.
