Advanced Software Products Group, Inc. (ASPG) has released version 2.0 of MegaCryption-PC and MegaCryption-IX, the fastest growing encryption tool for file cryptography on Windows, Unix, and Linux computers. MegaCryption-PC, for Windows, and MegaCryption-IX, for Unix and Linux, may be freely distributed for use on Windows, Unix, or Linux systems and are compatible with both OpenPGP and S/MIME cryptography standards. MegaCryption-PC and MegaCryption-IX include an intuitive graphical user interface, and also a command-line interface for power-users.

The new release of MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 offers broader compatibility with popular cryptographic systems used on many operating platforms. Designed for compatibility with GnuPG v2.0 and MegaCryption-z/OS, the MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 supports more symmetric algorithms, larger asymmetric key sizes, X.509 keys, as well as S/MIME and CMS cryptography. Users of MegaCryption-PC may now operate file encryption and decryption seamlessly by using the familiar Windows Explorer File Manager dialog. MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 includes an updated GUI interface as well.

While MegaCryption-PC/IX previously featured comprehensive key management, MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 introduces a configuration manager to facilitate site security policies and user preferences. MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 intuitively selects the appropriate format for encryption based on the type of public key selected by the user. These features are ideal for new users of cryptography or expert cryptographers who prefer strong cryptography that is simple to use.

Another security enhancement within MegaCryption-PC/IX v2.0 is the pin-entry secure passphrase tool. The pin-entry tool improves security for using passwords and passphrases with the file cryptography and key management programs in MegaCryption-PC/IX. Users must have the authority to access secret files and also authenticate their access to a secure key before operating decryption or digital-signature features. Without the appropriate access permission and key-authentication, end users will be unable to operate secure file operations using MegaCryption-PC/IX.

As a file-level cryptography tool, MegaCryption-PC/IX provides a comprehensive approach to compressing and encrypting virtually any file in your Windows, Unix, or Linux environment while complementing any communication level encryption process you may already have in place. MegaCryption-PC/IX can be used as a stand-alone product or interoperate with MegaCryption-z/OS on the mainframe to protect sensitive data throughout the enterprise.

Interested parties may read more about the MegaCryption-PC/IX for Windows, Unix, and Linux, or MegaCryption for z/OS software on the ASPG web site. Free trials of the software are also available.
