What is PGP Desktop?

PGP Desktop is software developed by Phil Zimmerman that provides users with an encryption and decryption program to protect the privacy of data exchanged over the Web. PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) utilizes a series of algorithm systems to encrypt data, providing a high level of protection for critical data exchanged between parties.

It utilizes the OpenPGP standard of encryption and decryption where the same license key is used to encrypt and decrypt data. A public key is assigned to a specific user which they can use for privacy and authentication. Documents, emails, folders, individual files and entire disk partitions can be protected through the PGP Desktop algorithm system.

The user can create a new key for each file that they want to encrypt, or store files in encrypted archives or disk. The user is provided with a list of keys, through the user interface, displaying a key for each corresponding file.

PGP Desktop is a cross-platform program. The software is offered for purchase. A trial version is available, which the user can utilize for up to 30 days.
