The history of AxCrypt started in 2001 when Svante needed to share confidential data over the Internet and failed to find existing data security solutions for Internet services that were both simple and easy to use for everyone. It was then that he developed and released the first version of AxCrypt through his company Axantum Software and shared it with others for free.
Now with AxCrypt Premium, you have access to extended functionality and exciting features! For a small fee, you can make sure your files are encrypted with AES-256 – the strongest version of the AES algorithm. It is a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard, widely used globally to protect sensitive and classified information of all levels. Sharing files with others is award winning easy with our cloud storage awareness in Dropbox, Google Drive, etc; and key sharing feature.
A key length of 128 bits is sufficient in most cases, except where rules and regulations or personal preference stipulate a higher level. AxCrypt Premium offers 256-bit encryption which is the strongest standardized encryption available, and is used for secret and top secret information all over the world.
Easy to work with
Keeping your files secured should not be difficult and AxCrypt makes it easier than ever to do so. Open, edit and share a secured file directly with double-click.
Cloud storage awareness
AxCrypt will automatically find what Cloud Storage services are installed on your computer and create an AxCrypt folder there. We make it easy for you to automatically view and keep the files secured on these folders.
Sharing a secured file is made directly from the AxCrypt software by choosing the secured file, click the share button and simply select the team member you want to share it to. The recipient just needs a free AxCrypt ID and will be automatically invited via email if necessary. The invitation email contains instructions on how to view and edit the file.
You can store all your passwords and codes online in a secure manner using the password management feature.
AxCrypt secures files, individually. However, you can designate folders as ‘secured’. The folders will be monitored for new files, and AxCrypt will secure all new files with a single click, or when you sign out.
You can also select multiple files, including all files in a folder, to be secured in a single operation. They still remain individual files, and the folder itself is not secured, just the files in it.
AxCrypt speaks English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and more to come.
