Encryptability: Powerful Encryption Software for Windows
Encryptability™ is a powerful software encryption utility for Windows 10, 8, 7 that protects your sensitive information from unauthorized access. It locks the bad guys out, and protects your personal, business, and financial data with strong encryption. Use Encryptability to create Virtual Encrypted Disks to store your sensitive files and documents. Encryptability uses the industry standard AES encryption algorithm to protect your files, the strongest protection available.
You can use Encryptability to create Virtual Encrypted Disks on the internal hard drives, removable external drives, and on the shared network folders. If your work files contain confidential company information, or private information about your clients, losing such data without encrypting them could spell disaster for your business or career! Encryptability can help you protect the privacy of your data.
Encryptability can keep your personal files secure, too. Do you keep your financial record or tax returns on your laptop? Or your family photo archive? What if you lose your laptop somewhere away from home? If you keep your sensitive files in a Virtual Encrypted Disk created with Encryptability, you can sleep well knowing your private files won't be used but someone else.
How does Encryptability work?
Encryptability uses Virtual Encrypted Disks to keep the encrypted files. When you use Encryptability to create a Virtual Encrypted Disk, it reserves a portion of the free space of the host drive for use by the Virtual Encrypted Disk. It also creates two encryption keys: the Data Encryption Key that is used to encrypt and decrypt the files and folders, and the Authentication Key that is derived from your password and is used to encrypt the Data Encryption Key from unauthorized access.
When the computer is powered off, the encrypted data becomes locked automatically. When you power on the computer or attach the host drive, the data remains in the locked state, until you enter the correct password. Then the Authentication Key is derived from your password and is used to decrypt the Data Encryption Key. Once the Data Encryption Key becomes available, the encrypted area becomes available as a Virtual Encrypted Disk, with its own drive letter, and the read-write operations can take place on the encrypted data.
When opening files from the encrypted area, they pass through the encryption driver that decrypts the data before passing it on to the application. Likewise, when an application saves data to a file, it goes through the encryption driver before it's stored into the encrypted area of the host drive.
When you are done working with the encrypted files, you stop the Virtual Encrypted Disk, and that erases the Data Encryption Key from the computer memory and locks the encrypted data, until the next time you enter your password. When you disconnect the host drive or power down the computer, the encrypted data becomes locked automatically.
Why choose Encryptability?
Encryptability keeps your private files safe.
Encryptability uses the industry-standard AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption, that makes it impossible for anyone to get to your files without knowing the correct password. There is currently no technology available to anyone in the world to break AES encryption.
Encryptability works with drives of any type.
Internal hard drives, SSDs, thumb drives, flash memory drives, portable hard drives, network drives - you name it. If your computer recognizes the drive, Encryptability can use it to store a Virtual Encrypted Disk.
Encryptability works with drives of any format.
Attention System Administrators: Encryptability is enterprise-ready! The Encryptability Administrator's Kit is available now.
You don't need to know if your computer has NTFS, exFAT, or FAT32 drives, because Encryptability can handle either format, automatically. It can create NTFS-formatted Virtual Encrypted Disks on the FAT-formatted drives and vice versa. Again, if your computer can handle it, Encryptability can work with it.
Encryptability can handle drives of any size.
From 1MB to 128TB (which is the current limit of Windows), Encryptability can encrypt drives of any size. After the initial encryption, the large drives work just as fast as the small ones.
Encryptability runs on a wide range of Windows platforms.
From Windows 7 to Windows 11, both 32- and 64-bit (including ARM 64-bit), with the latest service packs and hotfixes, all are supported by Encryptability.
Encryptability runs on any Windows computer.
You can install Encryptability on any computer running one of the supported versions of Windows: laptop, desktop, netbook, tablet, workstation, or server. If it can run Windows, it can run Encryptability.
Encryptability can create a recovery key.
You don't need to worry if your employee forgets the password to a Virtual Encrypted Disk created with Encryptability: you can choose to have a spare key created and stored separately, to gain access to the encrypted data when the main password is not available.
Encryptability is easy to use.
Whether you're an experienced computer user or you're just learning how to use Windows, you'll appreciate the simplicity of Encryptability's interface. When you attach an encrypted drive to your computer, Encryptability puts an icon in the taskbar, giving you an easy way of controlling the encrypted disk. When you enter your password, the color of the icon changes to indicate that the encrypted drive is now accessible. And so on: Encryptability makes working with the encrypted drives easy and intuitive.
Encryptability "speaks" plain English.
You don't have to be a computer professional to understand how to use Encryptability. Encryptability User's Guide describes its commands and operation in plain English, without "pseudo-techno" or "geeky" talk.
Encryptability is enterprise-ready.
We offer corporate customers a special version of Encryptability that does not require license validation over the Internet. The Encryptability Administrator's Kit contains the installation files in both the EXE and MSI formats, allowing the system administrators to quickly deploy Encryptability to a large number of computers. The Kit also contains a Group Policy template that you can use to automatically deliver the license key to a large number of client computers. It can also be used to restrict the commands of Encryptability.
