CryptoSidekick 2.1 for Windows

You left your laptop in a car and it was stolen ...
You think you put your flash drive in a briefcase, but can't find it ...
A company server was accessed by unknown hackers ...
Company stored its backup drives but after awhile can't track them down ...
You are using gmail account and Google is parsing your emails ...

Things like that happen every day. Loss of the hardware is bad, but loss of or unauthorized access to customer data, accounts, passwords, or company proprietary information is much worse. Don't let that happen to you. Encrypt your data!

CryptoSidekick allows to do it quickly and easily. You don't need to be an expert in cryptography to be able to store, transfer, or exchage your data with highest level of security. You don't need to remember the cryptic commands of command-line tools, or waste your time flipping through the manuals. An intuitive, convenient tabbed CryptoSidekick GUI makes all encryption tasks just a mouse click away. And it's always at hand in the Windows Taskbar tray.

CryptoSidekick contains encryption facilities for common encryption tasks:
  • generation and management of public and private 2048-bit RSA keys
  • very strong 256-bit AES symmetric and public key encryption and decryption for text, files and file archives, suitable for TOP SECRET designation*
  • data compression
  • digital signatures and verification
  • secure e-mail client with SSL support (POP3/SMTP)
  • secure password protected categorized notebook
  • file shredder
  • secure vault
*"The design and strength of all key lengths of the AES algorithm (i.e., 128, 192 and 256) are sufficient to protect classified information up to the SECRET level. TOP SECRET information will require use of either the 192 or 256 key lengths. The implementation of AES in products intended to protect national security systems and/or information must be reviewed and certified by NSA prior to their acquisition and use." -- CNSS Policy No. 15, Fact Sheet No. 1
