[prMac.com] Milano, Italy - Tension Software is pleased to announce AutoCrypt 2.1 for OS X. AutoCrypt is an encryption/decryption app with a document based approach. Using a document, AutoCrypt lets the user save in a document all the settings used to encrypt or decrypt collections of files using a powerful AES-256 algorithm. Using these documents, the app can be used for encryption and decryption batch process of large quantity of files in a single click. With AutoCrypt, a single command is enough to encrypt hundred of files to a destination place. It can also work unattended launching it in the night via launch utilities such as Cronette.
Thanks to the powerful AES-256 algorithm used by AutoCrypt, all the encrypted files will be totally unreadable by anyone without the correct password. The obtained encrypted files can be transmitted or stored in unsafe places (as example internet servers) without any security problem.
All the settings used to encrypt the original files, are saved inside an AutoCrypt document that can encrypt and decrypt an unlimited group of files. In few words an AutoCrypt document is a collection of setting used to encrypt or decrypt a collection of files. Copying a document and giving it to another user, allows that user to exchange with AutoCrypt encrypted files in a safe way over the internet without the need to even input the password used to encrypt files.
In case the files to encrypt or to decrypt are updated with frequencies, an AutoCrypt document, listing this files, provides a one click method to frequently encrypt them storing the updated files in a standard place, even using unattended operation. The user can also launch AutoCrypt in the night using a document with the 'Autorun' option turned on.
AutoCrypt works basing its actions on simplicity and is the ideal solution to be used as a batch mode encryptor and decryptor, but can also be used as a standard user attended tool. All the details of the job AutoCrypt has to perform is stored inside AutoCrypt documents (.autocrypt)
When AutoCrypt performs its job, it processes a list of files, one by one, reads each one, encrypts it and saves it in another location appending a .acrypt or .acrypx or .acrypz to the name. The app can also automatise the reversed process, decrypting files to plain files and saving them in another place removing the .acrypt , .acripx, .acrypz at the end of the name
