Editors' reviewThis application offers three encryption mechanisms, one of which fails to function properly. Armor System 5's neatly designed interface hands out apt file encryption and can impressively encrypt files of several formats using 1 of 39 encryption algorithms. You'll receive an instant activity log of all the ins and outs of your encryption or decryption including time, file location, and number of files processed. You can also quickly create TXT and RTF files = using Armor System 5's built-in word processor, and immediately encrypt them as well. Although the program performs beautifully in these areas, its e-mail-encryption feature didn't function properly during our tests. If sending encrypted e-mails is a must, you'll be sorely disappointed, but for securing the files on your PC, Armor System 5 is more than capable.
Armor System5 is a professional, easy-to-use encryption program for everyone who is serious about data security. The program includes three modules: File Encryption Module, Text Encryption Module (with built-in word processor), and E-mail Encryption Module. Each module takes a full advantage of the 40 industry-standard encryption algorithms and eliminates the need of user management of encryption keys. Keys are generated automatically based on user's pass-phrase input and optimized for compatibility. Armor System5 will also eliminate all the evidence of the sensitive documents with its build-in Wipe utility. The program can be used with our free ARS5 Viewer/Decryptor for an easy way to share or distribute encrypted files.
