Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 Delivers Additional Functionality for NTFS Volume Management in OS X El Capitan

FREIBURG, Germany, October 30, 2015 –Paragon Software Group, the technology leader in data security and data management solutions, announces a major update to Paragon NTFS for Mac® 14 – the market leading solution to solve incompatibility issues between OS X and Windows. Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, released on September 30th, offers the fastest read and write access ever for NTFS volumes in Mac OS X – as internal tests have proven: https://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/product_performance.html.

Paragon Software is the first developer to overcome the functional limitations of the latest version of OS X Disk Utility in El Capitan. Earlier versions of OS X allowed to easily format volumes in Disk Utility by implementing file system drivers provided by third-party manufacturers, but these functions are no longer available in OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Addressing customer needs, Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 makes intuitive data media formatting possible once again. Furthermore, the product now allows users to check the file system integrity of NTFS volumes and repair them, if necessary. Instead of configuring command-line tools, the volume management functions can now be easily accessed directly through the program’s graphical user interface.

 


New and key functions:

  • NEW: Volume management functions (for NTFS volumes)
  • Ultra-quick read and write access to NTFS files in OS X.
  • Supports OS X El Capitan
  • Supports all versions of NTFS
  • No limit to file or partition sizes (within NTFS and OS X constraints).
  • Supports special NTFS functions in OS X El Capitan such as resource forks, hardlinks, symlinks and file permissions (POSIX file attribute).
  • The transfer rate during file operations on NTFS partitions is just as good as it is for operations on native HFS partitions.
  • Unparalleled stability – even during peak system utilization!
  • Simply install it and go to work. No further system adjustments are necessary once it has been installed.
 

System requirements

OS X El Capitan 10.11 and back to 10.8.

Paragon Software Group Releases NTFS for Mac® 14 – the Industry’s Fastest Solution for Full Access to Windows Partitions on OS X 10.11 El Capitan

FREIBURG, Germany, September 30, 2015 – Paragon Software Group, the technology leader in data security and data management solutions, announces the release of Paragon NTFS for Mac® 14 – the market-leading solution to solve incompatibility issues between OS X and Windows. Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is the industry’s fastest driver giving OS X full read and write access to Windows-formatted NTFS partitions. The new version is fully compatible with Apple’s new operating system OS X 10.11 El Capitan, which was launched yesterday, and still supports all versions back to 10.8 Mountain Lion. Internal tests show Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is the only solution on the market to match the file transfer speed of Apple’s native driver on SSDs. Paragon NTFS 14 for Mac achieved 700MB/sec (write) and 800MB/sec (read) on the internal SSD of a MacBook Pro. It also performs as well as HFS+ with external storage: 250MB/sec write and 240MB/sec read on a two-SSD RAID device, and 210MB/sec write and 210MB/sec read on an ordinary external drive (2TB USB 3.0 Seagate Expansion Drive 3.5").




To ensure a higher level of security, El Capitan delivers a new protection feature. System Integrity Protection prevents modifications to certain system files, folders and processes. This protects components on disk and at run-time, only allowing system binaries to be modified by the system installer and software updates. Code injection and runtime attachments to system binaries are no longer allowed. Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is fully compatible with Apple’s new security policy ensuring fast, hassle-free and safe access to NTFS partitions from OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

Once the program is installed, the user can get started right away: conveniently navigate contents and read, edit, copy or create files and folders. The program guarantees advanced support of NTFS file systems and provides fast and transparent read/write access to any NTFS partition under OS X 10.11. Paragon has been the leader in cross-platform storage software for 20 years, delivering proven maximum performance, stability and security for cross-platform work between Mac, Windows and other operating systems.


Key functions:

  • Full OS X 10.11 El Capitan support.
  • Ultra-quick read/write access to NTFS files in OS X El Capitan.
  • No limit to file or partition sizes (within NTFS and OS X constraints).
  • Supports special NTFS functions in OS X El Capitan such as resource forks, hardlinks, symlinks and file permissions (POSIX file attribute).
  • The transfer rate during file operations on NTFS partitions is just as good as it is for operations on native HFS partitions.
  • Unparalleled stability – even during peak system utilization!
  • Simply install it and go to work. No further system adjustments are necessary once it has been installed.


System requirements

  • OS X El Capitan 10.11 and back to 10.8.

Paragon Software Releases Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac Beta

Need another volume on a disk? Want to redistribute space among existing volumes on a disk? Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac handles your partitioning chores easily and safely! Join Paragon’s beta program and enter to win one of 100 commercial licenses of Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac. All other beta testers get a 30% discount on the final product!

 

FREIBURG, Germany, April 29, 2015Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announces the release of Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac beta – a powerful tool to handle all of your disk management tasks. Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac is the result of more than 20 years of development in data protection, backup and disaster recovery on Windows and OS X now making it available to dual-boot users working on OS X-based systems.  In order to improve the quality of the product and integrate as much customer input as possible, Mac users are invited to download and test the new software free of charge at LINK. One hundred most active beta testers will get free commercial licenses while the other beta testers get a 30% discount on the commercial release, scheduled for summer 2015.

 

OS X-based computers already come with integrated partitioning features but these are limited to basic tasks. Mac users have limited possibilities for modifying the partition table after its creation, unable to resize file systems other than HFS+ or change partition properties.  Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac overcomes all of these limitations by allowing users to move partitions, resize partitions, undelete (recover deleted volumes), and modify volume properties.

 

The software comes with the most advanced system partitioning features to assist users to perform drive partitioning of any complexity easily and safely. With concise and explicit information conveniently presented in pop-up dialog boxes available to make the user’s job easier, Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac easily handles all system and data partitioning tasks. These start with the basics — create, format, and delete — then move up in sophistication to allow partitions to be undeleted, resized, moved, and copied. You can resize partitions, copy your entire drive or a partition, and even securely wipe it. An entire partition or just its free space can be wiped, or its file system checked for integrity. All partitioning operations can be performed on hard drives and SSDs of any capacity.

 

Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac delivers the ability to format volumes in any of the common file systems (HFS+, NTFS,  ExtFS, FAT 16/FAT 32 and exFAT). It can also convert between MBR, GPT, and hybrid GPT+MBR partitioning schemes; and correct Windows boot issues, including those occurring when moving the operating system to new hardware.

 

Additionally, users of Apple’s Boot Camp utility will benefit in Paragon Hard Disk Manager’s ability to easily resize Boot Camp partitions. Mac users can redistribute the available space between OS X and Windows partitions rapidly without data loss, quickly and easily adding free gigabytes to partitions used by either operating system. Advanced users will appreciate the ability to view and edit disk sectors.

 

With Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac, users can migrate Windows OS from one Mac computer to another. Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac supports Core Storage and works efficiently with Fusion Drive equipped Macs, as well as those using FileVault encryption. Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac supports all versions of OS X from Mountain Lion onwards.

 

Pricing & Availability: 

 

Paragon Hard Disk Manager beta is available for immediate download free of charge at http://www.paragon-software.com/home/hdm-mac/. The commercial release is scheduled for summer 2015.

  • No need to reboot the Mac after the resize operation is performed.
 

Supported Operating Systems

 

●  OS X 10.10 Yosemite

●  OS X 10.9 Mavericks

New Paragon Partition Manager 15 Delivers the Safest Hard Drive Partitioning, Even if the Power Fails

Wizards keep the job simple, Paragon’s technology keeps data safe

 

FREIBURG, Germany, March 10, 2015Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announces the release of Paragon Partition Manager 15 (Home and Professional editions) – the fastest and safest system partitioning software to assist PC users to perform drive partitioning of any complexity easily. Empowered with powerful wizard options for most tasks, Paragon Partition Manager 15 easily handles all PC system and data partitioning tasks (resize, move, merge, copy, etc.). Operations are alignment-aware, and can be performed on SSD or hard drives of any capacity. Expanded split and merge functions allow users to allocate specific files and folders to new partitions before performing the operation, enabling a more flexible modification of the partition layout. Partition Manager 15 delivers more than just partitioning. The software comes with powerful file system converters to adapt the most common file systems including NTFS, HFS+, and FAT. Paragon’s additional proprietary security enhancements include Paragon Security PLUS technology to fix boot errors in case the PC does not boot anymore, Paragon Power Shield TM, and others.

 

Paragon Partition Manager 15 is ideal for PC users working with virtual machines. The Professional edition includes Paragon Connect VD (Virtual Disk) – Paragon’s proprietary technology for direct partitioning of virtual hard drives. It works with all VM major formats, including VMDK, VHDX and VHD. With the Professional edition, users are even able to convert a basic MBR (Master Boot Record) partition table to a GUID partition table (GPT; required for UEFI configurations), while dynamic volumes can be converted into basic MBRs. The Professional edition can create WinPE-based and Linux-based recovery media, whereas the Home edition only creates Linux-based recovery media.

  

 

New and enhanced security features in Partition Manager 15:

 

Embedded Recovery Media Builder (RMB) 3.0 is now embedded directly into the product and has been enhanced with features from Paragon’s Boot Media Builder utility, giving more options plus improved usability and stability. The bootable RMB lets the user perform all partitioning operations from bootable recovery media and restore a backup even if the PC fails to boot:

  • •         Prepares Linux or WinPE-based bootable environment on a USB thumb drive or in an ISO image;
  • •         Doesn’t require Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) or Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) on Windows 7 and later platforms;
  • •         Can build WinPE-based media on Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003, providing WAIK is installed;
  • •         Allows injection of additional drivers for storage devices, network controllers, USB controllers, or system during setup;
  • •         Enables the use of a network share during setup;
  • •         Prepares hybrid (both UEFI and BIOS compatible) 64-bit recovery environment on flash or in an ISO image.

Redistribute Free Space: Increase free space on one partition by utilizing the unallocated on-disk space and the unused space of other partitions.

HFS file systems conversion: Convert any version of NTFS file system to Apple HFS+ and vice versa without reformatting.

Boot Manager: Easily manage several operating systems on one computer.

GPT Loader: Data storage support of GPT drives and modern high-capacity disks (2.2 TB+) under Windows XP.

Erasing some or all data on Mac has never been easier even if your Mac fails to boot! New Paragon Disk Wiper 15 for Mac OS X Free for efficient hard disk sanitization and permanent deletion of sensitive business or private data

Paragon Mac ToolBox portal offers an array of Mac tools to solve anything from operating systems incompatibility issues to redistribution of free space between Mac and Windows partition

 

FREIBURG, Germany, February 16, 2015 Paragon Software Group (PSG) , a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery, announces the release of Paragon Disk Wiper 15 for Mac OS X Free – a utility to efficiently clean hard disks and SSDs or permanently erase critical data on separate partitions or entire hard disks. As research has shown, the ‘trim’ command to delete data on the entire drive or individual volumes does not completely remove all traces of your personal data. Trimming is accomplished by a delete operation in relatively large blocks while remnants and entire small files remain intact; some data still stays on the drive in segments. Besides, all storage service areas containing active user data remain intact.

 

To be confident your data on SSD doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, you have two options: either physically shred your SSD into pieces that are small enough that a single chip cannot escape damage, or use a specialized data erasure utility that supports solid state drives, like Paragon’s Disk Wiper for Mac. Paragon’s solution is a free utility that performs a secure and permanent wipe within 20-30 seconds.

 

With Disk Wiper for Mac, wiping is not accomplished under Mac OS X, but from a special Linux-based flash stick that can be easily created from the program. After booting the Mac from this device, the Wipe Wizard can irreversibly remove confidential data in just a few easy steps. Multiple sanitization methods are available: “SSD Trim” (recommended for SSDs), selecting a specific algorithm, or a user-created method. Unlike traditional HDD-based wiping methods, “SSD Trim” works very quickly and is completely safe for SSDs.

 

Key features at a glance:

  • Creates a bootable wiping media in a few clicks
  • Wipe exactly what you need – the entire hard disk or separate partitions (primary, extended, logical)
  • Wipes data even if the Mac fails to boot
  • Supports ten different disk sanitization algorithms
  • Paragon’s powerful “SSD Trim” algorithm guarantees irreversible secure data destruction on SSD storage devices without causing unnecessary and undesirable wear
  • Flexible customization options allow to create your own wipe algorithm with minimal effort - define up to four wiping patterns, number of passes for each wiping pattern and for the group of patterns, thus resulting in over 40000 possible number of passes.
  • Wipe report with extended hardware and system information to verify the accomplishment of the wipe operation
 

Paragon Mac ToolBox portal

The new Paragon Mac ToolBox web portal makes it easy to find which of the company’s products can be used to solve particular Mac-related problems. For example, a user who wishes to reallocate disk space between OS X and Windows after using Boot Camp is directed to Paragon Camptune X. Or if the issue involves the use of an external drive in NTFS format, the Mac ToolBox reveals that Paragon NTFS for Mac 12 provides full read/write access. Some of the tools described in the Mac ToolBox are available free of charge, including Paragon Boot Camp Backup Free to back up Windows under OS X, while all commercial products are available on a time-limited demo basis.

 

Requirements:

Paragon Disk Wiper 15 for Mac OS X Free supports all OS X 10.6 and higher.

Paragon Disk Wiper 15 for Mac OS X Free is available at http://www.paragon-software.com/home/dw-mac/ Paragon Mac ToolBox portal with additional solutions for dual-boot users is available at http://www.paragon-software.com/mac/

In the light of recent scandals involving unauthorized access to personal information, the issue of data protection has moved back into the public spotlight. For criminal organizations, access to data can be a gold mine. What options are there for protecting data when an old PC or a hard disk is being replaced? Merely formatting the hard disk is not enough: there are a number of tools on the market that can recover information from a reformatted drive, so it is important to permanently delete sensitive data before disposing of a computer or a disk drive.

The new Paragon Disk Wiper 15 Professional erases data securely, reliably and permanently. Ten different algorithms follow recognized safety standards to make sensitive data or specific data fragments unrecognizable by multiple overwriting, so they are impossible to retrieve by any means.

The new version of Paragon Disk Wiper supports the latest Windows 8.1 as well as all types of hard disk layouts. A special highlight of the new version is support for SSDs. SSDs have a fundamentally different structure than traditional hard drives. Data cleansing by multiple overwriting is not designed for SSDs. For one thing, any additional writing cycle contributes to the durability of the expensive SSD and on the other hand, with traditional approaches it is not possible to delete a specific sector on an SSD because sequential and cyclic writing on SSDs allows for uniform use of the SSD cells. The SSD-delete function in the new Disk Wiper connects directly to the drive’s internal controller, and therefore deletes data on an SSD reliably and without compromising the durability and functionality of the SSD.

 

Other new features include:

 

Wipe Stamp: The user can specify whether the Wipe Stamp should be added to the MBR (Master Boot Record) of the deleted storage medium. The wipe stamp contains information about the used wiping program, algorithm, wiping status, the serial number of the disk, the system ID (recalled through WMI), etc. If this storage medium is restarted, a notification appears of when and how the data volume has been deleted. This option is available only if the total data volume has to be deleted. Sanitization notifications are especially useful to public authorities and institutions to ensure information (for example, health records, financial data, etc.) is protected, and is only accessible by authorized individuals in accordance with federal guidelines.

 

Deletion of Mac OS drives: Macs can be booted from the Linux-based wipe medium to securely erase all data from any selected HDD/SSD.

 

The built-in Wipe Media Builder: Creates in just three steps a bootable WinPE or Linux-based wiping environment on a USB flash drive or an ISO image. With this wiping media, data can be deleted from hard drives even if the operating system fails to boot.

 

Free update for full Windows 10 support.

 

Supported OS: Windows 8.1/8/7Vista/XP.

 

Availability: Paragon Disk Wiper 15 Professional is available for 39,95$ at http://www.paragon-software.com/home/dw-professional/ A free 30-day demo version is available. A bundle of Paragon Disk Wiper 15 Professional and Paragon Backup & Recovery 15 Home is available for only 39.95$ (80$ value, if purchased separately) until December 30 th, 2014, at http://www.paragon-software.com/promos/2014/dc-brh-launch/index.html

 

Paragon Backup & Recovery 15 Home

 

Paragon Backup & Recovery 15 Home protects valuable data and the entire operating system so it can be restored in case of a disaster. The software includes full range of backup and recovery options for files and folders, the operating system or even the entire hard disk to any storage of choice (e.g., internal storage, external USB storage, NAS, DVD, flash disks, etc.). The ‘set and forget’ technology allows the user to set up once while the system will accomplish backups automatically.

New features include an efficient backup format with higher compression and faster backups on network drives, as well as an improved recovery environment. The new Paragon Recovery Media Builder 3.0 feature makes creating a recovery environment particularly easy and flexible. Thanks to the latest WinPE technology, the recovery environment can be operated intuitively. Optionally, one can create a WinPE or Linux-based recovery media on a USB flash drive or save it as an ISO file and then burn a bootable CD/DVD. An enhanced mode allows the inclusion of specific drivers and preconfigured network settings.

The new version delivers powerful backup of the system both at sector and file level. The file-based backup and restore to and from virtual containers supports all popular formats, including pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK. Backup to virtual containers (full backups, file increments and supplements) can now also be created on the file level.

The program’s redesigned main window makes the functions easier to find and more intuitive to use. The layout used in the previous version (e.g., the PBF Backup Capsule) is also supported in a special Compatibility View mode.  

 

Free update for full Windows 10 support.

 

Supported OS: Windows 8.1/8/7Vista/XP.
