After putting this encryption tool to the test, we found it one of the better ones we've seen. However, novices might find the settings options hard to decipher.
Kryptel's main user interface lists encryption and decryption options, along with backup and settings on the left side of the window. Integrated with the options are links that offer users help along the way. The program also offers drag-and-drop functionality, and access via your context menu. The Settings Panel is where the program gets a little harder to navigate. Broken down into General, Kryptel, and Shredder categories, the options are vague, but once clicked, come with a description featured at the bottom of the page. Kryptel come with several encryption options, such as Blowfish, AES, and DES, as well as a binary key generator. We really liked the wizard-like approach the program used to walk us through the encryption process. Our files were immediately encrypted and password-protected. The same files were successfully decrypted using the same password.
Novices will probably need to spend a little time going through each of the settings to get a clearer picture of their impact, but the 30-day trial period should be ample time to fully test Kryptel. With all of the user guidance and encryption options, this comprehensive program can help any user protect his or her files.
Information is an asset modern businesses heavily depend on, and like any valuable asset, it should be guarded. Hence comes encryption. Computer evolution moved encryption from the world of spy novels to the everyday life, and using encryption software now is the most efficient and inexpensive way to secure critical data. Kryptel is a nice example of encryption software that is easy to use by an inexperienced user and yet powerful enough to provide a high level of data protection. It provides a number of strong ciphers, including Advanced Encryption Standard, efficient data compression, and a DoD-compliant shredder for removing every unwanted trace of sensitive data. All this makes Kryptel fit the strictest security requirements. Kryptel offers one-click encryption operations for files and folders, as well as the ability to process arbitrarily large file sets in a single operation. Corporate users will find especially useful full support for batch mode processing and server-side unattended encryption feature. At the same time, Kryptel is not overcomplicated and requires little or no learning to perform basic tasks. All in all, Kryptel is an excellent choice whenever you need encryption software to keep your files safe. Try it for free - www.kryptel.com
