Crypteze

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This easy-to-use encryption utility supplies a decent amount of security, but we still must voice a few complaints. Crypteze lets you choose from five algorithms for encrypting and shredding files so you can compromise between security and speed. The bland interface is easy enough to use and conveniently lets you lock files via a quick right-click. Still, it would be nice if you could just drag and drop files to the main interface instead of having to browse your PC. We were also disappointed to learn you can't encrypt folders or multiple files at once. We did appreciate Crypteze's security measures, including the ability to shred files and password-protect access to the application. Unfortunately, the utility can't create self-decrypting files, so your recipients will need to install the program. In spite of a couple of flaws, Crypteze works just fine for users with occasional encryption needs.

Developer's Description

Crypteze can encrypt any file for sharing with others - protected by digital IDs or a password. If you need a Digital ID for file encryption or secure e-mail (Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express), Crypteze can generate one for you. Also, Crypteze can securely delete a file so that it cannot be recovered by any means. Crypteze offers a simpler, more Microsoft-centric alternative to PGP. Version 1.1.0.518 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
