Encrypted email attachments

Kruptos2 Professional allows you to create encrypted email attachments so you can email your sensitive documents to anyone who has a Windows based computer. Your recipients do not need to have Kruptos 2 Professional installed all they need is the correct password to gain access to your shared documents.

Kruptos 2 Professional encrypted attachments utilise the same power behind self-extracting files so you can be sure your files are secure.
