We are happy to announce that we released our new Boxcryptor for Windows version (2.1.401) today!
Amongst some stability improvements and minor bug fixes, we improved the UI and usability of our Windows version. This means, that our users can now access the Boxcryptor context menu via a right-click everywhere (not only in the Boxcryptor drive). That a lot of users are trying to access Boxcryptor outside the Boxcryptor drive was an important feedback we got from users in a usability test which we conducted a couple of weeks ago.
What do you do when you’re a computer manufacturing company, and you want to increase your revenue for each machine you’re selling, without increasing the price? You might just make a deal with a company which inserts ads into the websites you’re visiting, and preinstall their software on every laptop you ship. Not nice, but almost all computer manufacturing companies do it. It only gets really bad if the software actually removes the most important security features in the web!
We are happy to announce that we just released a new iOS beta version! We know, that our iOS users had to wait for a very long time, but we are convinced that this great new version will conciliate you for the waiting period. Most important change is the new iCloud support. This means that you can now encrypt your iCloud and securely store your files there. This was the most common feature wish of our iPhone and iPad users and we are happy that iCloud is now supported in the new version.
Today, in the digital age, the most valuable assets of a company or a person are often not physical objects, but something that is worth much more: data. Whether it is personal data, customer data or a "recipe for the secret sauce”, what it all has in common is that this information is very valuable and has to be protected.
Have you ever wondered why encrypted filenames consist of Asian characters? More than a year ago we worked on the next evolution of our filename encryption for the new Boxcryptor generation. In this process we had to solve a problem nobody would expect to exist today - when people jump from 127,851 ft and we land on comets.
