GiliSoft Secure Disc Creator is a handy application for creating CDs and DVDs that include both a public area accessed by anyone and a private one accessed by only those who know a password that you previously assigned. This tool is of great help when you want to distribute some private data to someone while using a CD or DVD. Anyway, this tool doesn't only let you create and burn CDs and DVDs that contain a private, encrypted area, but also create virtual disc images with the same special attribute of containing a password-protected region.

Another cool thing about GiliSoft Secure Disc Creator is the fact that it's a portable solution which doesn't require instaling on every computer where the created secure disc is used. When it creates a secure disc it places a file named agent.exe on that disc, said file is executed when one tries to access to private area of the disc and prompts for the password that should grant access to the files and folders located on the protected area.

Beside creating the actual CDs and DVDs and ISO disc images, this nice utility is also capable of creating virtual drives and mounting disc images onto them. As you can see, it's a pretty feature-rich and powerful tool. Despite that, it's still easy-to-use and intuitive, thanks to the simple and straightforward interface.

Cutting long story short, GiliSoft Secure Disc Creator is actually one of my favorite tools from GiliSoft. Though USBs are slowly taking over CDs and DVDs, making them somehow obsolete, as long as these devices are still used, GiliSoft Secure Disc Creator is one of the best solutions to ensure that these devices can also carry private data in a completely secure manner.
