Cypherix, a software company that has made a name for itself by supplying data security solutions for major entities like the Federal Reserve, the Mitsubishi Trust, and Lockheed Martin, has announced major enhancements to its software designed to provide total data encryption capabilities to the average PC user, even for free.
Cypherix 11.0, 448-bit encryption software comes in several editions and features a number of enhancements. The software is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows and allows the user to create an innumerable amount of encrypted drives that appear as any other drive normally would. The user simply drags and drops desired files into the virtual drive after entering a password. The time it takes to encrypt a file is close to the time it takes a computer to perform the “Copy Paste” function.
Further demonstrating the compatibility of the software, Cypherix is equipped with the ability to encrypt files on any media, whether that be a USB Drive, Flash Drive, Pen Drive, Mobile Device, CD-ROM, or CDRW.
Additional 11.0 exclusive features include the ability for multi-tab interface, an upgraded storage volume of 10 terabytes, GUID/GPT Drive Compatibility, nine language options, and other improvements. Another feature, the Secure Email module, is an additional tool that allows the user to send encrypted files to recipients who do not need Cypherix to extract the files; all the recipient needs is a password.
Cypherix LE, Cypherix’s free version of their data security software, offers the same Microsoft Windows edition compatibility features, as well as the ability to drag and drop files up to 100 megabytes in size onto any desired media. Other features packaged in Cypherix LE’s simple user interface include Cypherix’s standard, speedy encryption processes, Windows function capabilities (cut, copy, paste, new file, etc.), and Secure Email.
Over 10 million consumers with data sovereignty concerns choose Cypherix to provide data encryption solutions. Cypherix Software is based in Mumbai, India and has a number of products dealing with privacy, network security, and access control.
