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.
From Inv Softworks:
Kryptel is an easy-to-use single-click solution making encryption of files and folders no more complex than copying or moving. On the other hand, Kryptel includes a number of advanced features like creating encrypted filesets or batch mode processing. By default, Kryptel uses the newest Advanced Encryption Standard for data encryption. Other strong ciphers can be selected in the Crypto Settings panel. The encrypted backup feature and efficient data compression make Kryptel an ideal tool for archiving sensitive data. The integrated file shredder provides secure deletion of sensitive files in accordance to DoD 5220.22-M specification. Kryptel Encryption Suite is well suited for both home and corporate use and can satisfy most demanding security needs.
Reliable encryption that is well thought out. Truly professional level software. Backup function is incorporated. It deletes your temporary files. Office program etc. creates a temp file every time you view your files, if it is not deleted you have a fully functional unencrypted file on your hard drive.
Map structure is intact in browser. There is a free version that can decrypt your files if needed. Great support. Enterprise version with 64bit native support and more is $10 more.
I wish I found this software before spending money and time on other. Hard to find,somehow this software always comes way down in listings. So much for "10 best lists" etc!
Many years of looking for a software that encrypts files with keys and passwords to share in the network is over. It is the way to go even if you use encrypted drives. So easy to have an unprotected key file or similar on an odd USB stick or some old backup media that has been forgotten. BTW. if you think the way to go is to hide your precious files wait till you try to find them in a backup or when you forget were you put them.
You only have to right click on a file or folder and type in a password to encrypt or decrypt it. You can change the encrypted folder or file's name to disguise it and when it is decrypted it will have its old name back. It encrypts folders and files of practically any size. If you encrypt a folder with many files inside it the encrypted folder cannot be opened and the file names read making it very suitable for securing all sorts of data from prying eyes.
When encrypting large folders it takes some time to complete the encryption.
I would recommend everybody to try and buy this software. it is easy to use, and the technical support is extremely helpful.I sent email to technical support1/01/2004, i received reply the same day.
Take my word i bought this software,because it is so good.
If you want to buy encryption software you will now be wrong if you buy this . I am so happy with the service i received from technical support, you will never anywhere else.
