Editors' Review

Kruptos 2 Professional offers strong yet affordable encryption in Windows. An Office-like layout makes it easy to learn, with many support resources available, including a Setup guide. It's free to try for 30 days.

Pros

Setup options: During setup, you'll be prompted to create a single master password. You can use a convenient single password for all actions. Or choose a multiple password option that still uses your master password as default. This can be changed later.

Office-style user interface: With an Office-style Ribbon toolbar, Start button, and layout, Kruptos 2 Professional is easy to get to know and works in home or corporate environments. Amenities include drag and drop and four styles: blue, black, silver, and aqua.

Context menus: Kruptos 2 Professional adds commands to Windows context menus, making it easy to encrypt and decrypt items with a few quick clicks.

Strong encryption: Kruptos 2 Professional uses military-grade 256-bit AES encryption as its standard, or you can opt for 256-bit Blowfish. You can specify changed file extensions and disguised filenames for additional security.

Shredding: DoD-standard shredding includes the ability to set speed and strength with a slider. Or enter the number of passes directly.

Cons

Free alternatives: Kruptos 2 Professional isn't expensive, but casual users might be equally satisfied with similar freeware.

Bottom Line

Kruptos 2 Professional offers strong, versatile data encryption in an affordable, attractive, and easy-to-use package. Similar freeware is available, but security software is not the place to put "you get what you pay for" to the test.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Kruptos 2 Professional 5.0.2.

"the best encryption software you will find"

May 15, 2015  |  By GreenGardensToday

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 5.0.2

Pros

This is the best encryption software you will find. Not only is it robust, but it's very easy to use. This is the true sign of a quality product. If you're managing sensitive files, you must have Kruptos! I have used it vigorously for a year now and it worked flawlessly each time. Also, they have fantastic customer service, a very rare commodity. Give it a try, I know you will agree!

Cons

Nothing to see here, move along please

"Deleted it the first day"

May 13, 2015  |  By My Views

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 5.0.2

Pros

None because it did not work correctly ON MY SYSTEM (Win7 Pro -64)

Cons

I wanted to protect drives and folders, as well as files. It seemed to handle files, provided they resided on my HDD, but could not PW protect nor hide my USB thumb drive, nor folders on the thumb drive. But what was especially annoying is that it would not permit me to protect files within a folder on my thumb drive, saying I was not allowed to protect system or application files. These were simple .txt and .rtf files created specifically to test this process. I look for programs to make life easier and safer. I am not a masochist, except for working on a computer. A few hours trial and error, and I am gone! BTW, searched some more for file/folder encryption software, rejected Folder Lock because reviewers complained about customer service, found DataProtecto, tried it, and was protecting everything but the kitchen sink in minutes.

Summary

Some people write favorably about K2 Pro. That's why I tried it. Maybe there is something on my computer (dust??) that interferes with it. I cannot recommend K2 Pro.

"Simple and easy to use"

February 21, 2015  |  By tillydoodlebug

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 4.1

Pros

I can't really add much to what others have said but I'll add my approval here. one thing I will +1 is the customer support is very good: sent an email received a replay almost immediately, outstanding!

So, like others have said, if you want easy to use encryption then you need not look any further.

Cons

None to speak of

"So easy to use"

February 17, 2015  |  By RockonDude_87

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 4.1

Pros

This software is so easy to use, I literally had my files encrypted in a few clicks. Unlike other encryption software there is no need to create 'lockers' or 'virtual vaults' I mean, who the heck knows what a virtual vault is? So, you just choose your files, click encrypt then enter your password and your done. So easy.

Cons

Kruptos 2 is perfect, the only thing I'd like to say is the lack of mobile phone support. I contacted them and they say they are soon to release the iOS version and Android version all compatible with each other. Great!

Summary

If you wan an easy to use encryption program and don't want the bother of setting up virtual things give Kruptos a try, excellent!

"Excellent Customer Service"

December 28, 2013  |  By g.huff

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.30

Pros

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

Cons

Nothing so far.

Summary

If you are looking for a company with EXCELLENT before and after the sale customer service you may want to try this one. 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.

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.28
