With recent allegations that the NSA has hidden backdoors in products from several major security vendors, we wanted to offer users a free OpenPGP alternative built on open source encryption software.
Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
Coviant Software announces the release of Diplomat OpenPGP Community Edition, a free OpenPGP tool, for users that want the security of OpenPGP encryption coupled with automation and ease-of-use. To minimize the risk of backdoors, Diplomat OpenPGP Community Edition’s encryption features are built on open source code that is always available for review.
“With recent allegations that the NSA has hidden backdoors in products from major security vendors, we wanted to offer a free OpenPGP alternative built on open source encryption software,” said Pam Reid, CEO of Coviant Software. “Some OpenPGP-compliant tools already exist, but most are too complex for the average user. Diplomat OpenPGP Community Edition combines security and automation in one easy-to-use tool.”
Diplomat Community Edition brings ease-of-use to typical OpenPGP encryption tasks without requiring any special technical skills. With Diplomat OpenPGP Community Edition, users can:
- Encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify files using strong OpenPGP algorithms
- Schedule file encryption or decryption jobs to automate business processes
- Encrypt or decrypt many files in a single job
- Transfer files anywhere on a local network after encryption or decryption
- Run ad hoc encryption or decryption jobs as needed
