File encryption software Compatible with Windows (r) 7.
Advaned Encryption Package uses 20 encryption algorithms (including AES 256-bit) to protect your documents from prying eyes.
can create self-decrypting versions of your encrypted files - the
recipient of this file will not need to have AEP PRO to decrypt
It also supports any kind of USB Flash Drive to store
your decryption keys. The whole USB drive can be protected by single
master password on your usb flash drive.
Additionally, AEP PRO is
integrated with Windows Clipboard and can encrypt/decrypt text messages
in it (you can copy/paste scrambled text messages to email message or
instant messaging program).
Moreover, this encryption software has special 'password quality' indicator to help you choose non-weak passwords.
The recipients of encrypted files can use freeware program Crypt4Free to decrypt received encrypted files.
latest version received "Compatible with Windows (r) 7" logo and
includes ability to edit encrypted documents in single mouse click.
What is file encryption and decryption?
Encrypting data means getting it transformed into a string of characters undecipherable by others.
What actually happens is that by using a secret-key i.e. the equivalent of a code, the cryptography system transforms your data into gibberish i.e. it realises password protection. If the scrambling of the data is done properly, the original file can only be unscrambled and read by someone who knows the secret key i.e. the code used to encrypt the file (your password).
High encryption of file ensures that even if someone gets access to your computers he would not be able to read the data stored there. Encrypted files can safely be sent by electronical mail or placed on a network with the assurance that the data can be read only by those who were meant to have it.
Basic data encryption systems have been used to protect secrets for many centuries. But today's encryption methods (for ex. modern advanced encryption standard) are far more sophisticated and reliable than ever before because the encryption code itself is a very complex computational transformation that is only feasible with desktop machines in the early 1990s
What can I do to be safe?
Each time you work with sensitive data, or wish to communicate with someone else confidentially, you can use Advanced File Encryption provided by AEP2009 Pro to protect your files. (The Help Menu provides a step-by-step guide of how this is to be done).
Ensure that all you stored information is also encrypted so that it is safe from the eyes of snoopers, competitors or uninvited investigators.
And when getting rid of old files or data, don't just delete them, use the built in File shred function to securely delete file to be absolutely safe.
* Easy in
Since this version, every popup window, like the Progress Window, the Ask Confirmation window, the Log window has own button in the Windows Toolbar when processing files (encrypting,shredding and etc) from context menu of Windows Explorer.
So, it is easily to activate the progress window by clicking its button on the taskbar.
This version has some other minor bug fixes and enhancements. For example, the log window is displayed even when it is disabled in program options when error occured during secure file deletion.
