Baltsoft Software has released Encrypt Easy v. 3.3, a Windows security application that allows encryption and decryption of files, folders, and entire directory trees with a single click. After encryption, information may be stored on unsecured drives or e-mailed over the Internet, and only the person with the proper password can access the data.

Encrypt Easy lets users choose from a number of available cryptographic algorithms including Rijndael, Blowfish, Twofish, DES, TripleDES, and RC2. To further strengthen cryptographic security, the program uses predictive compression.
Encrypt Easy is fully integrated into Microsoft Windows Explorer. A file or folder can be encrypted by right-clicking it, and with a single mouse-click and a password, the program locks your files securely. Additionally, one mouse click and the password are all that are required by the person decrypting the files. Using the program’s self-extracting function, the person decrypting the files does not need to have Encrypt Easy installed.
Encrypt Easy shreds files permanently so that they cannot be recovered. The built-in shredder conforms to the US Department of Defense’s 5220.22-M protocol for removing computer files. Encrypt Easy also has a built-in wipe utility that removes all traces of Internet and system activities. If someone accesses the user’s computer, that person will be unable to determine which Web sites you have visited, which documents you have recently accessed, or which programs you have been running.
