Free encryption software
If you’re concerned about Windows file security or folder security on your computer, use secure encryption technology to keep information on your system safe.
Pitfalls of free encryption tools
There are plenty of free encryption tools out there. Some are free on-the-fly disk or file encryption programs that encrypt single files on your disk drive.
Other publicly available tools may claim to have strong encryption, or even “unbreakable” encryption. Whatever a product claims, download free encryption products with caution. They may not provide the encryption you need to keep your files safe.
If you need to properly ensure the privacy or security of your files, use encryption software from a company with a proven track record in secure encryption.
Kaspersky Lab has been trusted by millions of users for more than 12 years. It is a safe, tried and tested choice when it comes to encrypting your files.
How encryption software works
Kaspersky’s encryption software preserves the confidentiality and integrity of information by encrypting it. This means that the data can only be read, modified or deleted by users who know the predefined password that was entered at the time of encryption.
Kaspersky’s KryptoStorage encryption software secures three types of object: catalogues, virtual disks (file containers) and logical partitions of the hard drive. Encryption and decryption of hard disk partitions is performed in the background so you can continue working with data while the software does its job.
The ability to encrypt different object types makes Kaspersky’s cryptosystem flexible and easy to use. For example, when a user opens a document to read information, it is automatically decrypted. When it is written to a disk, it is encrypted. This means that data located on the hard disk is always encrypted.
With the KryptoStorage, all your encrypted data is stored in a password-protected digital container that only you can access.
As well as cryptosecurity, KryptoStorage is also capable of permanently deleting data from any media. This prevents information being compromised if a memory device is lost or after it is thrown away.
