Exlade Company announces a new version of Cryptic Disk 3.1 - a powerful encryption tool for file containers and physical disks.
One of the main advantages of the new version of Cryptic Disk 3.1 is an enhanced crypto durability of data protection. To previously supported hash algorithms (SHA2, RIPEMD and Whirlpool) was added a new cryptographic algorithm Keccak with a key length of 512 bits, which has been chosen by the NIST organization as a new standard of SHA3. Using Cryptic Disk 3.1 with SHA3 support for SHA3 allows to reach a greater degree of confidential data protection while preserving the optimal ratio crypto durability and performance.
Capabilities of the new version of Cryptic Disk 3.1 not only provide the required resistance against breaking-in, but also an increased speed of encryption on processors that support hardware encryption by AES algorithm. Encryption speed is one of the critical factors that can affect system performance, especially when dealing with large volumes of data at high speed drives. Hardware acceleration support in Cryptic Disk 3.1 makes encryption process even more unnoticeable to the user by reducing the computational load on the processor.
In addition to expansion of program’s capabilities, changes were made to its interface as well, which reduced the response time of the program and brought working with functions of new version of Cryptic Disk 3.1 to the new level of comfort.
