DriveCrypt Review

Sven Sorensen
1344 Bit, Military strong, transparent real time Hard Disk encryption
A review of DriveCrypt by Sven Sørensen

DriveCrypt is file and folder encryption software for people who are constantly on the go. It is designed especially for portable computers running Windows such as UltraBooks, netbooks and conventional laptops.

Instead of encrypting just an area of a drive or creating a "safe" like many other encryption programs do, DriveCrypt actually encrypts 100% of the hard drive, making the data stored within secure from third parties should the PC become compromised or stolen.

This program works with 1344-bit encryption and makes it completely inaccessible to people who are not authorized to access the information. It does this by encrypting and decrypting data on the fly without intervention from the user. Data is decrypted when it is transferred to the RAM and then re-encrypted once it's saved back to disk.

Perfect for enterprise users and those who travel with sensitive and private data, DriveCrypt currently falls into a category of its own and with the use of strong cryptography, highly effective.

DriveCrypt features and highlights:
  • Strong Cryptography with 1344-bit encryption
  • Easy-to-use and install, deploy
  • Maximize security while reducing risk
  • Disk partition encryption software
  • File volume encryption
  • Hide data inside mp3 files
