Kruptos 2 Professional offers strong yet affordable encryption in Windows. An Office-like layout makes it easy to learn, with many support resources available, including a Setup guide. It’s free to try for 30 days.
Setup options: During setup, you’ll be prompted to create a single master password. You can use a convenient single password for all actions. Or choose a multiple password option that still uses your master password as default. This can be changed later.
Office-style user interface: With an Office-style Ribbon toolbar, Start button, and layout, Kruptos 2 Professional is easy to get to know and works in home or corporate environments. Amenities include drag and drop and four styles: blue, black, silver, and aqua.
Context menus: Kruptos 2 Professional adds commands to Windows context menus, making it easy to encrypt and decrypt items with a few quick clicks.
Strong encryption: Kruptos 2 Professional uses military-grade 256-bit AES encryption as its standard, or you can opt for 256-bit Blowfish. You can specify changed file extensions and disguised filenames for additional security.
Shredding: DoD-standard shredding includes the ability to set speed and strength with a slider. Or enter the number of passes directly.
Free alternatives: Kruptos 2 Professional isn’t expensive, but casual users might be equally satisfied with similar freeware.
Kruptos 2 Professional offers strong, versatile data encryption in an affordable, attractive, and easy-to-use package. Similar freeware is available, but security software is not the place to put “you get what you pay for” to the test.
