What is AxCrypt?

The AxCrypt software is an encryption tool made for Windows that is open source. It integrates with Windows in compression, encryption, decryption, and storing, sending, and editing files. The software also works well with Dropbox, Google Drive, Live Mesh, SkyDrive, and Box.net.

AxCrypt has several main features: password protection with a strong encryption; right-click and double click integration with Windows Explorer for encrypting, opening, editing, and saving files; automated encryption after each modification or viewing of files using any application; no necessary prior configuration to use; open source under GNU General Public License; supports 12 languages in a single executable distribution; and an extensive command-line interface for scripting and programming.

There are also basic features such as AES encryption with 128-bit keys, optional pass phrase cache, key-line generation and support, server mode option, file support for files larger than 4 GB (self-decryption is an exemption), dynamic brute force counter measure, integrated shredder, selective compression before encryption, secure memory handling, industry standard algorithms, and many more. The software runs on Windows systems like Windows 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, 7, and 8, all in either 32-bit or 64-bit.
