Sentry locks down your computer on demand so it stays secure when you aren't using it. No other programs can be opened, no browser history can be snooped at, and nobody will be touching your files while you're gone. The program can even take messages from people who dropped by your workstation while you were away.
Sentry aims to be everything the Windows "lock" function isn't. The appearance of your screen is 100% customizable in HTML, and you can still have your favorite screen savers run within the program. Sentry can launch from a system tray icon, a global hotkey, or after your computer has been idle (no keyboard/mouse input) for a certain amount of time. The Sentry2Go feature lets you copy the program to removable media such as a floppy disk, USB flash drive, or CD-rom, allowing you to quickly lock any public workstation you may be using.
Sentry Manager allows you control multiple computers running Sentry on a LAN, and can be accessed from a Windows PC or the browser of your smart phone.
Sentry is ideal for people in workplaces who may have to leave their system unexpectedly and don't want co-workers to snoop around in their files. It's also useful for teachers, parents, etc, who don't want the kids messing with their computer if it's left on.
