    You just landed a key sales position in a multinational organization which promises career growth and better future prospects, given the condition that you work with honesty and dedication. You may feel that all is honky dory, though you may be very wrong. The fact is that you'll be working with others in the organization - your co-workers. Most of your co-workers will be helpful and friendly, but, a few of them will have an aversion to you and perhaps they may grow to be your bitter rivals. Despondently, there's not much you can do to make things better for yourself if you are met with hostility by some co-workers, excluding the verity that you can simply overlook them and go on with your business.

    So now, you've been doing fairly well, in fact your performance has been quite exceptional and you are receiving high praises by top management. Though, some of your co-workers are jealous of your new found success and are planning to take some harsh steps to take you down, all the while, you may be unaware of the looming threats that you may be facing by your co-workers. Imagine yourself in the following paradigm: Your co-worker, John, who is the most hostile towards you, has devised a wicked plan which will get you fired. While you go on your lunch break, you leave your computer un-locked. As you leave and drive-off to a nearby restaurant to grab a bite to eat, john with extreme stealth goes into your booth and locates a file which contains key information containing the addresses, names and numbers of top paying customers, he then attaches that file and mails it to your employer's competitors.

    Few months back when sales begin to dip, your company begins to go into loss and your boss launches an investigation to determine the cause of sudden loss of sales, all employees are interviewed by top management, finally during the final phase of the investigative interview, John reveals that you may be sending confidential information to competitors via email. As a result, your email activities are audited and the email which was sent by john to all of your competitors has been determined to be linked with your email address. Consequently, you are fired without giving you any chance to explain yourself. Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are shattered and to add insult to injury, you are black-listed from your ex-employer. The preceding fictitious scenario is sad, though this has happened to several professionals in real-life.

    This confrontation could have been easily prevented had you protected your clients list with Folder Locking software such as Folder Lock which allows you to password protect critical company data. The splendor of this software is that it locks your data and cannot be accessed without the correct password. Only you can unlock them with the correct password. For added security, folder lock also enables you to encrypt confidential company data by storing them in encrypted lockers, which are impossible to hack, since they are encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption technology.
