Silver Key encrypts files or folders, producing encrypted parcels that can be safely sent over the Internet. Silver Key parcels are self-extracting and don't require the recipient to have any cryptographic software installed.
Version: 5.0.1If you need to send sensitive data over the Internet you should encrypt it first. Anybody knows this. Right, but what about the other side?

You correspondent will probably not like the idea of buying and learning some software just to decrypt your file. No problem here if you are using Silver Key! Right-click the file or folder you wish to send and select the "Create EXE Parcel" command.
Silver Key compresses and encrypts your data and adds a small decryptor program.
Your correspondent does not need to install any decrypting program because the parcel already contains all the needed software. If your demands are higher, you can use the Silver Key Shell to create more advanced parcels.
You can add encrypted and unencrypted comments, create shortcuts on the target computer, request opening the file after decryption, and even include the uninstaller!
Silver Key fully supports automated batch processing and it is ideally suitable for corporate usage.
If you want to protect your data according to the HIPAA privacy regulations, our software lets you easily incorporate HIPAA-compliant encryption.
