Best Encryption Software

Encryption software uses cryptography to mask files, text, and data, protecting information from undesired parties. Companies utilize these tools to ensure their sensitive data is secured even in the event of a breach. Companies can apply this technology to communications, databases, and virtually any other kind of file. Encryption products provide capabilities to pick and choose which sets of information administrators deem too valuable to risk. The tools either integrate with or work in unison with whatever application is used for storage or information transfer. The encryption programs can usually obscure the content of data at rest and data in transit. The tools turn the information into ciphertext that only the original owner can decipher.

Many data security and mobile data security solutions function similarly to encryption software, but those tools are designated to more specific types of data and often provide additional functionalities.

To qualify for inclusion in the Encryption category, a product must:

  • Secure data and files using ciphertext
  • Prepare either data at rest or data in transit for encryption
  • Allow users to choose and manage files and their encryption settings
