ApiMac Releases Protect Files 1.0 Security Utility

| News

Software developer ApiMac on Friday introduced Protect Files 1.0, a file and folder encryption application that allows users to create password-locked encrypted space for files folders on internal and external hard drives.

The program, once used, creates an encrypted space that appears as a volume on your desktop. When the space is locked, its content is secure. When unlocked, users can copy, move, and delete files.

The secured space defaults to 128-bit AES encryption, but that can be changed to 256-bit AES in the application’s preferences.

Protect Files 1.0 retails for $15, with a trial version also available.

The software runs on OS X 10.4 and later to install and run.

The price is certainly right.

We mac users have at least two free options for making encrypted files in our Macs.

1. The Disk Utility.app inside that ships with MacOS X inside the Utilities menue.

2. And, though I haven’t tried it myself, TrueCrypt, which allows for compatibility across platforms:
“Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux”

This appears to be nothing more than a GUI wrapper around the Disk Image framework, the same framework used by Disk Utility and FileVault.
