BestCrypt Container Encryption is a cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android) solution that allows you to create encrypted storage (we call it container) and use it to store sensitive data inside. Once mounted (opened), such containers appear to the OS to be just like regular hard drives and can be easily accessed via Explorer / Finder. BestCrypt Container Encryption supports password-based encryption with a wide choice of secure encryption algorithms as well as public key encryption and secret-shared schemes that require a number of passwords to be entered to open container. BestCrypt containers may be easily transferred between users and accessed for reading even without having BestCrypt necessarily installed (e.g. when abroad) with our small BCTraveller utility. BestCrypt Container Encryption also features creating hidden containers which was originally Jetico innovation for plausible deniability. BestCrypt Container Encryption includes the add-on CryptoSwap to encrypt system pagefile.
If you rather intend to encrypt and protect entire machine, another Jetico solution BestCrypt Volume Encryption would fit your needs. BestCrypt Volume Encryption is a powerful tool that allows you to encrypt all kinds of all types of volumes and partitions including those residing on several disks (e.g. spanned, mirrored, stripped, RAID-5 and Storage Spaces). It also features pre-boot authentication, which means user must enter password, otherwise he won't be able to boot the machine. BestCrypt Volume Encryption is also capable of encrypting removable drives such as external harddrives, USB sticks, memory cards, etc.
