Kruptos 2 Professional

CNET Editors' review

If you need a robust security tool, shareware such as Kruptos 2 Professional can handle the job. In addition to strong 256-bit encryption, Kruptos creates encrypted ZIP files and self-extracting files, and it automatically re-encrypts files when you close them so you never have to worry about forgetting to re-secure your protected files. Kruptos 2 Professional does it for under $25; affordable to individuals and a bargain for businesses. You can try the fully-functional Kruptos 2 Professional for free for 30 uses. When the trial expires, you can still decrypt your files with Kruptos. Recent updates include Windows 8 compatibility and two-phase authentication combining a password and keyfile.

A nag screen started counting down our 30 free uses when we opened Kruptos, and a Help file also opened with its Getting Started page displayed. With subtle blue tones and an Office-style Ribbon toolbar, the program's user interface will fit in well in a business environment. Kruptos is quite easy to use: Click Add Files or Add Folders in the Project tab to browse to data to protect. But we did it the easy way by dragging items from the left sideboard's tree view into the main window. You can protect many different items under one password or keyfile, or create separate Projects for different kinds of data. Under Cryptography, we clicked Encrypt and created a password (with hints) in a pop-up tool. Kruptos offers several options, such as the ability to disguise file names. When our files were protected, Kruptos returned a report. We browsed to our encrypted file's location and clicked it. After clicking past the nag screen, we merely had to enter our password to open our file. We could also open multiple encrypted files at once from the main interface, too.

Kruptos 2 Professional stands head and shoulders above the free encryption tools we've tried, though it's every bit as easy to use. If you need more from you security software, give it a try.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.27.

    Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.30

    Pros

    Works as advertised with the big bonus of having excellent customer service.

    Cons

I am not an encryption expert and so I have contacted them with questions on a few occasions both before and after the sale and have always received a very quick and helpful response.

    "BEWARE! NEVER RECEIVED ACTIVATION CODE AFTER PURCHASE!"

    March 14, 2013  |   By dbflowergirl

    Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.27

    Pros

    I really enjoyed using this product during the trial period. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use it because after I purchased the program, I never received an activation key. I sent a couple of emails to their support department, but still have not received the activation key. That was approximately 7 days ago.

    PROS:

    #1. Decent program with a clean interface and very easy to use. Nothing out of the ordinary though, as there are plenty of other programs that perform the same security functions as Kruptos2 Professional.

    Cons

    CONS:

    1. BEWARE! YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE YOUR ACTIVATION KEY IF YOU PURCHASE THIS "KRUPTOS2 PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE" PRODUCT!

    2. No customer support is apparently available.

    Summary

    See above. Enough said.
