CNET Editors' reviewThis simple encryption utility pulls its weight but suffers from a performance problem. CryptoSystem Personal is very easy to use; you can either password-protect files and folders via a right-click, or you can do so using the spartan main interface. The application can encrypt files using three variants of the AES algorithm but unfortunately doesn't let you choose from others. The file shredder is a nice addition. And while we're glad the developer now has included a feature for creating self-decrypting EXE files, we never got it to work; in multiple tests, it gave us an error message and wouldn't let us extract the file. On the plus side, the app did a speedy job of encrypting a 1GB file, though you'll need to register the program if you want to secure larger items. Although it's not for paranoiacs or those who routinely share secure files, this utility will suit most average home users seeking a no-nonsense encryption app.
From Sauritus Computing:
CryptoSystem Personal is the tool to help you protect your data from unauthorized viewing. It combines an easy-to-use interface and seamless Windows integration with the power of Advanced Encryption Standard, which has been adopted by NIST as a Federal Information Processing Standard and is one of the strongest encryption methods available. Version 1.2 now can create self-decrypting archives.
