Sophos Free Encryption
Sophos Free Encryption is an intuitive application that you can use to protect your sensitive data from unauthorized viewing. It can be handled by all types of users.
The interface of the program is based on a standard window with an intuitive layout, where you can add files into the secured environment using either the file browser, folder view or "drag and drop" method. You can add as many items as you want.
In order to encrypt data, you have to specify a target for the archive with the Sophos Free Encryption format (UTI), and assign a password to it. Alternatively, you can apply a key file as a dependency.
A few options are available for the encryption process. Therefore, you can create self-extracting executable files, securely delete the original items after encryption, compress data and save passwords in a history list.
Furthermore, you can use the default email client to send the encrypted archives via email after the process is done, as well as change the default file path to the passwords history list.
Sophos Free Encryption carries out a task rapidly and without errors, while using a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, thus it does not affect the computer's overall performance. We haven't come across any difficulties in our tests, since the tool did not hang or crash.
Although it has not been updated for a pretty long time, Sophos Free Encryption offers users a simple alternative to secure their files, by turning them into encrypted archives.
