Secure Hive

CNET Editors' review

Encrypt, archive, or create self-extracting files using this simple and effective encryption tool, although the trial period is insufficient. Novice users can easily comprehend Secure Hive's neatly designed, user-friendly interface. To quickly add files or folders, Secure Hive supports drag-and-drop functionality and context menu commands. Secure Hive's flexibility continues through the utility as archives are easily created as self-extracting or read-only with options to keep, delete, or shred the original files. Not merely an archiving tool, Secure Hive adds encryption toolbar buttons in common MS Office programs such as MS Excel and MS Word. This allows users to effectively encrypt entire or select pieces of a document. This makes it simple to send confidential information securely through e-mail, file-transfer programs, or over a network. We also like the program's stringent security features to protect files from unauthorized users. Office users needing simple encryption and others who need an archiver with encryption functionality will find this a useful utility, but many find the 15-day trial period too short to accurately test all functions.

    Version: Secure Hive 1.0.0.1

    Pros

    Secure Hive has been very useful to us since we started to use it internally at the beginning of 2005. Before that we used another product that was good but did not have the ease of use and the part encryption benefits that Secure Hive has. Working as designers this has been very useful for us as we can produce documents with both words and pics and encrypt either the Pic or the words. This has been very useful on projects when sharing the document as only a need to know member can see the full document. We are going to start recommending it to our clients and if they do not wish to buy it there is a free copy or lite version, which acts as a reader and does encrypt documents up to 35kb. Secure Hive also is useful for Email security and this is where we feel we can add value to our service to our clients. There is a lot of confidentiality in design and keeping something secret until its launch is sometimes very hard. So far in 2005 we have had no leakage. Good work Secure Hive Ltd
