Strong Encryption using PGP
Protect your Files using PGP encryption. PGP (Pretty Good Privacy)
is a public key encryption method that has become a standard for encryption/decryption of email and files on the Internet and elsewhere as well as for authentication of messages using digital signatures.
It is based on the creation of a customized key pair, consisting of a public key that encrypts and a private key that decrypts data that has been encrypted using the public key.
PentaSuite-PRO offers PentaPGP
as interface to conveniently address all aspects of using PGP encryption: PGP Key Generation, PGP Key Management, Encryption, Decryption, Digital Signatures and more.
PentaPGP will fully integrate with existing PGP desktop versions on a user’s system.
Creation of Self Decrypting Files
Create Self Decrypting Archives using AES or Twofish Strong Encryption algorithms. Self Decrypting Files are a convenient means to send encrypted data to others that may not have security software installed on their systems.
The files will be encrypted to a self decrypting executable file (.exe).
A compressed archive named ‘NewArchive_1.zip’ for instance would be encrypted to ‘NewArchive_1.zip.exe’.
Self decrypting files are standard Windows executable files that can be opened on any Windows computer.
To access the encrypted data the recipients just need to know the password that was used to encrypt the self decrypting file.
PentaPKI - Digital Signatures and Encryption based on (PKI) X.509 certificates
PentaPKI is our PKI client solution enabling users to apply encryption and digital signatures within existing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) environments based on X.509 certificates. The purpose of a public key infrastructure is to help companies, authorities as well as individuals to secure their information by establishing and maintaining a trustworthy networking environment based on the management of keys and digital certificates. Using PentaPKI you can easily sign, encrypt, decrypt files of any type as well as email messages, verify signatures, complete and enhance your digital signature by adding a time stamp and more. PentaPKI also offers the possibility to configure PKI Signature options and parameters by country (currently available for Italy, Spain, Germany) to users whose signatures need to be in compliance with the EU Services Directive implemented in their country.
Share and manage PGP encrypted Files using PentaSend Wizard
Encrypt using PGP, email, upload via FTP or just save to a hard drive or to a CD/DVD files that require security. Download PGP encrypted files from a remote computer, decrypt and save them locally or to a CD/DVD. PentaSend Wizard
gives you a seamless interface between your files and PGP encryption.
