Linux File Encryption Made Easy In BestCrypt By Jetico
HELSINKI, Finland --(Business Wire)--
Jetico, security software developer, has announced the release of
version 2.0 of BestCrypt Container
Encryption for Linux, now with a simple user experience
in a new graphical user interface (GUI), plus greater stability and
security. With Jetico's Linux
encryption software you can safely store any selected
files or folders in encrypted containers, which work like virtual drives.
Jetico CEO Michael Waksman states, "Despite its advanced security
technology, BestCrypt is so easy to use. Based on the interface in
BestCrypt for Mac, this new GUI for Linux makes encryption operations
more intuitive, and thus quicker to learn and use with a simple click."
In the previous version of BestCrypt for Linux, encryption
operations were only available in command-line. Thanks to the new GUI in
the BestCrypt Control Panel, now anyone can use Linux encryption without
more complicated command instructions.
Since the original release of BestCrypt, Jetico's file
encryption> software has reliably delivered a solution
that is easy to use and light on system resources. The updated version
promises the same high-powered encryption, with a range of improvements
designed to make the software even more secure and adaptable to user
BestCrypt Container Encryption for Linux version 2.0 offers the
following added features and benefits:
GUI to provide an easy user interface for all possible tasks
with container encryption; GUI is optional, so the program may still
be from via command-line if preferred
Redeveloped BestCrypt block device driver to support future
Linux kernel changes;�save time by quickly finding devices where
containers have been mounted
XTS and LRW encryption modes
Create several hidden containers inside an outer container
Changed visible device politics so now there are no empty
devices; new BestCrypt block device appears only during container
Commands for bctool to more easily backup and restore container
Commands for bctool to encrypt and decrypt container headers to
fully hide a container file
BestCrypt's key advantage is working with container files for
storage and transfer of encrypted
data that is compatible across Windows, Linux and Mac.
Users can determine the size of the container depending upon their
needs, as well as create multiple containers for more flexible
management of files and folders.
To summarize the user benefit of BestCrypt, Mr. Waksman clarifies,
"If a computer containing confidential or personal information were in
danger of being accessed by unwanted eyes, BestCrypt offers peace of
mind that any sensitive files are protected by strong encryption that
doesn't hurt to use."
