This folder encryption software allows you to hide folders and encrypt files with on-the-fly AES encryption. Just create one or more encrypted secure folders from local folders and move your sensitive files into the specified encrypted folder and they will be encrypted/decrypted in real-time. From then on, just enter your password and use all your files just as you always have HandyCrypto handles all the encryption functions instantly and transparently behind the scenes for you. You can work with the encrypted files as usual, and when you're done, lock the secure folder, which will store the files securely and also hide the entire folder from view.
Who Can Benefit from Using HandyCrypto:
If you have real sensitive data to protect from being leaked in case of your computer was stolen, you will need HandyCrypto which not only hides your files but also encrypts them on-the-fly with 128-bit AES encryption.
How It Works:
The problem with encryption is you need to decrypt each file before you use it and then re-encrypt it again when you're done. But not with HandyCrypto. HandyCrypto intercepts all reads and writes to your encrypted folders and files and decrypts/encrypts the data instantly on the fly as the data is read or written. It's so fast, easy, and transparent you'll soon forget you're using encrypted files at all!
HandyCrypto provides transparent, on-the-fly encryption by implementing a file system filter driver.
When a folder is selected to be encrypted, HandyCrypto will store all files that are written or copied to it as encrypted ciphertexts. When an authorized user opens a file within the encrypted folder, HandyCrypto transparently decrypts only the needed portions of the file into memory. The file data on the hard disk remains encrypted. The authorized user can view or modify the file and HandyCrypto automatically encrypts the data when it is written back to the hard disk.
Since the data is only decrypted in memory, attempts to read stored files by using low-level disk tools, booting into other operating systems, or by connecting hard disk to another computer will only reveal encrypted text.
