[prMac.com] Derbyshire, UK - Arten Science today announced R10Cipher Version 3 is now available. R10Cipher is a simple but extremely powerful Cross Platform End to End File and Text Encryption / Decryption tool from the developer of MonitorMyMac. R10Cipher takes text or files and encrypts them using up to 384 bit Blowfish encryption. These files can be Word files, Excel files, MP3 files - almost any kind of file.
These encrypted files can be copied elsewhere, even to a different operating system and unencrypted by anyone in possession of the Shared Secret that was used for the encryption. Your text can be encrypted and sent as an email directly from R10Cipher. Only the recipient in possession of the Shared Secret can read the contents. If encrypting a file the encrypted file can be stored or sent in the full knowledge that it's contents are not visible to anyone without access to R10Cipher and the Shared Secret.
Decryption can be carried out just by double clicking the encrypted file and entering the Shared Secret. R10Cipher supports batch encryption by 'drag and drop' to make encryption fast and painless, even when dealing with dozens of files. As R10Cipher does not require installation you can, for example, copy the Mac, Windows and Linux versions of R10Cipher to a USB drive along with your encrypted documents and files. Your documents and files are secure, but available *whenever* and *wherever* you require them.
R10Cipher is primarily designed to enable the secure exchange of information between one or more individuals. As a peer to peer encryption tool R10Cipher excels, and is used as the encryption tool by the PCD Initiative, Protect Client Data.
Version 3 has increased the encryption strength from 128 bit to 384 bit, and has been completely re-written to be simpler, slicker and faster. In addition R10Cipher provides complete Key Management: the ability to safely and securely store all your 'Shared Secrets' and make them easily accessible when required for Encryption or Decryption.
Many people do not realise that sending an email is the equivalent of sending a postcard, it's contents are easily visible. For many companies, individuals and markets this is totally unacceptable and with the potential complexity and setup issues with the Public Key Encryption systems it makes sense to encrypt using R10Cipher.
If your recipient needs only to Decrypt your Text or Files then they can license R10Cipher free of charge.
