Editors' Review

There are a few hoops to jump through, but this simple encryption utility proves reliable in our tests. Without a dedicated interface, WEnc-Windows Encryption is conveniently integrated with Windows, making encryption and decryption chores easy to accomplish. Rather than relying on passwords, the program uses key certificates. A key generator automatically generates the key certificates or you can create your own and store them on the hard drive or on a flash or floppy disk. When using Blowfish to encrypt documents, the program automatically renames the encrypted file and overwrites the original. WEnc can process multiple files at once and encrypts/decrypts an entire folder with a single key certificate saving each file individually. Although you can e-mail your encrypted files, recipients will need to have WEnc-Windows Encryption installed on their PC for decryption. The program doesn't compress encrypted documents and doesn't offer any other algorithm alternatives, but it deciphers and launches encrypted files quickly. This 15-day trial requires extra steps not found in other encryption tools, but some users will appreciate not having to keep up with passwords.
