Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
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.
