Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Securely encrypt files for storing on your PC or for sending to others with this professional encryption/decryption program. SafeIT File Encryption's intelligent design makes it an easy program for both novices and experts. As users become familiar with the app, splash screens are easily eliminated to expedite the encryption and decryption processes.

The program supports drag and drop, or you can use the basic browser to locate items for encryption or decryption. After either process radio buttons make it easy to shred, delete, or leave the original files alone. The process is easy to follow with encrypted files easily identified with the addition of "EN" to the file name. However, testers noted they would have preferred an option to set the output directory.

Users who want to share encrypted files will appreciate the ability to create password-protected, self-extracting encrypted files. Security-minded users will like the option to choose from four encryption algorithms, including Blowfish and Rijndael. An easy-to-read log file displays details of all operations.

There's a tab for a File Shredder, but it requires a separate download and doesn't come installed with SafeIT File Encryption. If you're looking for a way to protect sensitive files, you should give this program a try. Suitable for novice or expert, the fully functional demo version is one of the easiest we've tested.
