BestCrypt delivers compliance with regulations, such as HIPAA and GDPR, as well as privacy for personal data at home. Data on lost computers or stolen laptops is safe with BestCrypt.

“Securing all the data on your computer is now faster than ever with just a couple of clicks. BestCrypt Volume Encryption is fully transparent to the OS and apps – fast, simple and invisible,” says Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman. “BestCrypt users will love the simplicity – easy setup in a polished new interface.”
