  • Make your files smaller, because AEPE has implemented LZA compression of your data. Your encrypted files will be on 50-500% smaller! And do not worry - you will be always able to restore original files with using your password.

  • And much more...!


  • Based on a non proprietary, open source, public domain encryption algorithm ADVANCED ENCRYPTION STANDARD (RIJNDAEL). It is thought to be one of the strongest in existence and requires relatively little computing power (practically a 1 Mb file can be encrypted in 30 Seconds or less on most desktop machines).

  • Statistically impregnable against brute force attacks

  • Built in file shredder - i.e. wiping the contents of the original pre-encrypted file beyond recovery to make sure that not even a trace remains after shredding. (matching and exceeding the specifications of the U.S. Department of Defense) to stop hardware recovery tools.

  • Built in compression of files to reduce size in transmission.

  • No "back door" in the software - No access possible under any circumstances. If you do not remember the password you cannot access the encrypted contents. There is no special procedure, secret code, or hidden entry method to fall back on.

  • AEPE encrypts every kind of file on every kind of medium, whether floppy disk, removable hard drive, zip drive, tape drive or other.

  • Ability to make self-decrypting files for sending to people who do not have AEPE. The program can be used to create self-extracting files. The recipient can unlock the data by just starting the self-extracting file within Windows and entering the combination.

  • The only requirement for self-extracting files is that the recipients must be running some form of Microsoft Windows. All they need is a key to access the contents i.e. a totally secure system is possible without any modification of existing mail systems using any mail system that supports file attachments.

  • Intuitive interface (Windows Shell Integration)

  • Designed to hide the complexities of encryption technology from the end user.
