editions for every need

Kryptel is available in three editions covering a wide range of users' requirements.

Free Edition (Kryptelite) is excellent choice for those users who use encryption only occasionally. While it lacks bells and whistles of the more advanced editions, it still does the job perfectly and provides the same highest level of security.

Standard Edition includes all the major features you'd expect from top-notch encryption software. Besides basic encryption/decryption operations, this edition can do encrypted backups and script-driven encryption jobs. Kryptel Standard includes powerful Kryptel Browser for inspecting and modifying encrypted containers, and can be run from a USB drive.

If security and reliability is absolute priority, Enterprise Edition is what you need. In addition to the Standard Edition's features, Kryptel Enterprise offers command-line interface for automated processing and can work in FIPS 140-2 -compliant encryption mode. In case of a hardware failure its Data Recovery feature will help you minimize damage by recovering data from the corrupted container.

Unlimited file size

While Kryptel does not limit file size, operating system limitations may apply. For instance, FAT32-formatted drives cannot hold files larger than 4Gb.

Additional ciphers and Kryptelite

Kryptelite does not allow cipher selection and always uses AES/ZIP for encryption. However it includes all the additional ciphers from the advanced product editions, and so can decrypt files created by Standard or Enterprise editions.

Thumbnail pre-generation

Kryptel Browser always shows thumbnails for picture files, however in case of many large pictures, on-the-fly thumbnail rendering may be very slow. The encryptor, shipped with the commercial editions, supports pre-creating thumbnails during encryption. This slightly increases encryption time, but makes picture browsing much more convenient.
