The Universal Crypto Solution

Data security and integrity should always be your top priority, not just when handling sensitive information. Protect personal and critical business data by encrypting digital communication within your organization, company, or agency.

You don't need a degree in computer science or mathematics to encrypt emails and data. Installing and setting up GnuPG programs is straightforward. We provide detailed instructions and offer support upon request.

For your employees, it’s business as usual: they’ll find their familiar work environment and email program just as they left it. This makes encrypting emails and other data as easy and intuitive as clicking "Send".

GnuPG Products Our Strengths

End-to-End Encryption for Windows and Linux


Folder Icon

With GnuPG, you can secure your files on Windows and Linux (both locally and on remote computers) using the latest technological standards. Our encryption technology effectively protects your files and backups—only the holder of the private key can decrypt the data. Asymmetric encryption (Public Key Cryptography) also means there's no longer a need for the cumbersome exchange and securing of passwords.


Encrypted Mail Icon

Unencrypted emails really are like postcards: anyone can read them! GnuPG puts your emails in an envelope, ensuring that no one can read them on their way to the recipient. Our end-to-end encryption guarantees that only the sender and recipient can read the message. This is different from traditional transport encryption, where emails can be intercepted and read at various points along their journey.


Fingerprint Icon

Most cyber-attacks start with a falsified identity, making authentication an essentail component of IT security. GnuPG's cryptographic signatures help ensure the authenticity of your communication partners. This protects you from phishing attacks and your systems from malware, preventing costly and extensive cleanups. Additionally, GnuPG enables secure logins with smartcards.
