"Best cd dvd encryption software."
The GiliSoft CD DVD Encryption package is designed to be used to backup important data into an encrypted disc format that can be burned to either a CD or DVD. Strong encryption is used with password protection to ensure that any CD or DVD created using the GiliSoft CD DVD Encryption software cannot be opened and accessed by others. The encryption works across a number of Microsoft Windows from Windows 2000 to later ones which is useful if running multiple PCs (or using one at work and a different in the home office) with different Windows operating systems used. The interface is pretty simple presenting the initial option to either create a new encrypted disc or decrypt one that was made previously. Sensitive files are the ideal content to use with such a package which puts security at the forefront of its offering.
The installation requires 5.1 MB of available disk space. A Start menu item is created. A second screen offers to create a desktop shortcut icon (pre-selected) and an optional Quick Launch icon too. There was no other software added like toolbars or adware.
The user interface offers two clear choices to select from:
To burn an encrypted disc to be used only by yourself, then the first option is for this. The second option is to decrypt a disc that has already been encrypted by this software.
From there, the interface is laid out to facilitate either creating a new encrypted CD or DVD, or to decrypt an existing one. The layout is easy to grasp quickly, so most users would have no trouble using this software.
- Backup existing data by encrypting it and saving it to a CD or DVD
- Encrypt data using strong encryption standards and password security
- Good interface which makes it a simple matter either create a new disc or access one that has already been burned with data and encryption
- No extra unwanted software included
- None observed.
GiliSoft CD DVD Encryption is a useful CD and DVD package for backing up important data to be stored in disc format making it quite portable. The data can be encrypted using effective security with password access to stop people accessing the disc successfully later. When wanting a different type of backup solution then this software might well fit the bill nicely.
