USBCrypt for users of Microsoft® Office
If you use an external drive to keep copies of your Microsoft® Office documents, you don’t want them to get into the wrong hands. Losing sensitive sales records or client data can spell disaster for your business!
To be able to securely transport the files between different locations, or to take your documents on a trip with you, use our encryption software USBCrypt, specifically designed to create secure areas on the removable drives to protect your sensitive documents with passwords.
The best time to worry about security of your documents, spreadsheets, or presentations is now, while you still have them.
Once an encrypted area is created on a removable drive, you can copy, move, or save any Office document directly to it, without the need to do any special encryption or preparation: USBCrypt takes care of all such details for you. You can open the documents right off the encrypted area, too, and save them back, as usual. In fact, you may not notice that you are working with the encrypted documents at all!USBCrypt is very easy to use. It offers the wizard-style interface that guides you through the steps of selecting a password and encrypting your external drive. USBCrypt uses the strong encryption algorithms such as AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), using the key lengths 128 or 256 bits, to ensure absolute confidentiality of your files. The documents you save to the encrypted area can only be opened if you enter a valid password. Because USBCrypt stores your password in an encoded form using the Secure Hash Algorithm, no one would be able to discover your password, even if all computers on earth were forced to do nothing else but crack the encryption of your USB drive!
The drives protected with USBCrypt can be used with other Windows computers, without USBCrypt software installed on them (with the administrator's permission, of course). USBCrypt also offers the option of creating a “spare key” file on your main computer, for use if you forget your encryption password. System administrators can find this option especially useful to make sure the encrypted files can be opened even if the employee is not available.
USBCrypt fully supports all versions of Microsoft Office that are compatible with Microsoft Windows 11, Microsoft Windows 10, 8, or 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit editions, such as x64 and ARM64, are supported). It can protect not only external USB drives, but also other types of external drives, such as FireWire drives, Zip drives, and other types of rewritable drives.
