Web site protection tools comparison

   A comparison between HTML Guardian and the rest of the web site protection tools available on the market.

In the table below, 'Leading competitor' is not a specific program. It is, so to say, the ideal mixture of all competing products. If any competing program has certain feature, we consider that the 'Leading competitor' has this feature as well. Actually a product that has all the 'Leading competitor' features does not exist.

Notes
Security level
[HTML Guardian is taken as a basis, or 100%]
100%
15-45%
HTML Guardian is worldwide recognized as the most secure web site protection utility, even all our competitors acknowledge that. The unparallel level of security is one of the main reasons HTML Guardian to be adopted as a world web site protection standard.
Encrypt html files All competing products can encrypt html files, in most cases with a very low to none security.
Encrypt javascript / vbscript Most competing products can encrypt javascript files, in most cases with a very low to none security. Most can't protect vbscript files, but a few of them can do this (with a very low to none level of security)
Image protection   No other program provides whatever image protection functionality. Image protection is a unique HTML Guardian feature.
Encrypt shtml   No other program can encrypt files that use server-side includes(.shtml files).
Additional protection options (disable right click, printing etc.) Most competing programs provide additional source code protection options like disable right click, disable printing, disable text copy etc.
Protect .css files [style sheets]   Only HTML Guardian can protect style sheets [css] files.
Encrypt ASP files   No other program can encrypt ASP files at all.
Encrypt ASP includes   Only HTML Guardian can protect ASP includes.
Additional protection options for ASP files   Only HTML Guardian can protect ASP files with additional protection options. Other programs can't encrypt asp files at all.
Precise, user-defined partial encryption Some competing products provide a basic partial encryption functionality, like 'encrypt head tag only', 'encrypt body tag only', 'protect links', 'encrypt javascript sections' etc. Only HTML Guardian allows you to precisely define which pieces of code to be encrypted, or which pieces of code to remain unencrypted.
Strong html password protection HTML Guardian provides extremely secure, 384-bit html password protection. Some competing products claim they provide 128-bit password protection, or even more. In fact, the best security level a competing product reaches is 56-bit encryption - such password is hard to be cracked by the average user or even by advanced users. However a determined person can crack such html password with some of the many tools available for this purpose. HTML Guardian is the only tool that provides a really unbreakable html password encryption.
Encrypt PHP files A few competing programs can encrypt PHP source code, in one or another way.
Advanced batch file processing Most competing applications provide some form of batch files processing - they can encrypt all the files in a folder or in a user-defined file lists. None of them can configure, save and encrypt lists of files(or entire web sites) with an individual protection options specified for each file.
Full command line support A few programs allow some simple, basic command line usage. HTML Guardian allows advanced command-line usage, you can define almost all the protection options in command line mode.
Profiles to quickly apply predefined sets of protection options   No other program provides a similar functionality in such advanced form, very basic and limited profiles support exists in some.
Auto-select most suitable encryption method for each file   Some competing applications use 2-6 different encryption methods, but the user has to select which one to be applied. HTML Guardian uses more than 40. The difference is it uses them internally and automatically selects the most suitable one which ensures the best possible security and performance.
Deep source code analysis [CodeAnalyzer]   All similar programs use hard-coded encryption algorithms which do not change, no matter what file is being encrypted. HTML Guardian selects the most suitable encryption method after a deep source code analysis performed by the CodeAnalyzer™ engine. After the process is finished, the encrypted source is tested in all the installed browsers by the debugging engines. If there are errors or if the security level is unsatisfactory, the encryption process restarts with a different algorithm.
Debugging the encrypted source in installed browsers   No other application tests the protected source in all installed browsers for errors or security problems. HTML Guardian debugs the encrypted source in Internet Explorer, Netscape and Opera browsers simultaneously [if those browsers are installed on the user's system] .
Customize browser layout - remove address bar, tool bar, status bar etc.   The option to customize the browser layout available in the SiteManager tool is unique to HTML Guardian. It allows you to optionally remove the browser address(URL) bar, Toolbar, Status bar and Menu bar, as well as to display the protected web site in fullscreen mode.
Auto-update via the web   Check for new versions, download available updates from our web server and install them automatically (this feature is available only in the Professional and Enterprise editions of the software)
Macromedia DreamWeaver integration   The Dreamweaver encryption addon provides a convenient way to perform some tasks as well as to encrypt the currently edited file and test encrypted html files directly from Dreamweaver.
Compress & optimize html source code Some programs have basic code compression functionality. HTML Guardian will remove any single useless bit from your files, thus reducing the file size with 10-40%. It is also possible only to compress & optimize the source code, without encrypting it.
Encrypt HTML-formatted email Some of the competing programs can encrypt html formatted email messages.
Adopted as web site protection standard   All the above clearly shows why HTML Guardian is adopted worldwide as a standard in web site protection
