Protecting important files and preventing their access by unauthorized people is a concern you genuinely have at one time or another.

There are tens of ways you can secure documents and one of the easiest and safest ways to do so is to encrypt them. PowerCryptor Encryption Suite is a software solution that allows you to password protect your files by applying various types of encryption algorithms to them.

The suite comes with two separate tools that help each other out in providing strong security for your files. First off, there’s PowerCryptor, an application that displays a user-friendly interface and allows you to add one or more files and encrypt them. It’s a really good solution for when you want to protect single files and email them or entire folders for storage purposes.

Setting up an encryption process shouldn’t take you more than a minute or two, even if it’s your first time using PowerCryptor. The application enables you to set a custom password, choose a different folder for the encrypted files, as well as the algorithm that is used. You get to select between AES 256 bit, Blowfish, Triple DES, DES, RC2 and ARC4. Encryption time greatly depends on the size of the files submitted for the process but overall, PowerCryptor is quite fast.

Besides encryption, you also get to create self extracting EXE files and ZIP archives. Moreover, you can even change the password to an already encrypted file or use the built-in shredder to permanently remove it from your computer.

The second component of PowerCryptor Encryption Suite is Passowrd Generator. By default, PowerCryptor offers you a similar tool but this standalone generator is capable of creating much larger and therefore much more complex passkeys. The generated passwords can then be copied to any text editor and saved.

In closing, PowerCryptor Encryption Suite truly provides, reliable and powerful encryption software which you can use both at home and in the office.
