Information Not Available

Overview

Boxcryptor is file-encryption software designed and created specifically for cloud use, with support for all major cloud-storage providers, as well as any cloud-storage provider that follows the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) standard. With the increasing number of security threats, data and identity privacy are becoming more critical. Whether for personal or professional use, Boxcryptor has a solution. After installing Boxcryptor, the user has the ability to encrypt, decrypt, share, and add and remove files from cloud storage directly through his/her personal computer (PC) or device, simplifying all file-management tasks. End users are able to protect files by encrypting them locally before those files are posted to a cloud-storage provider, ensuring file security and file-data privacy throughout the process.

BitLocker is Microsoft's full disk encryption solution, which protects all of your data from theft, hacking or loss. BitLocker does this by encrypting the entire drive that hosts your Windows operating system and all your data.

BitLocker is available for all devices, including portable storage devices (such as external hard drives and USB flash drives). These portable devices are supported by a feature called BitLocker To Go, which is included in Windows 7 and 8, and in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. In Windows XP, encrypted devices can be read, but not written to, using the BitLocker To Go Reader program.
