What is File Encryption and why would you use it?
This application was created in 2015 as freeware application for encrypting files in a password protected manner. The goal was create a very simple application which allowed sensitive files to be sent over insecure mediums and if the file was intercepted, it would be illegible. It has been updated as of 11 June 2021.
File encryption is an important area to consider when sending sensitive information to external and even internal bodies. When information is transferred through a medium such as email, it is important to use a protection method in the event of interception. The issue with many secure email systems is that they are so often expensive and complex. GDP Encrypt is a special software application that transforms (Encrypts and Decrypts) into a legible form. However it can only do this when a specific password is provided. The file is turned into randomised symbols that are unreadable. A password is assigned to an encrypted file at the time of encryption, effectively locking it.
