Please Play Fair: What Boxcryptor License Matches Your Requirements?
Today, Boxcryptor exists for almost seven years and we take special pride in securing the cloud of more than half a million users all over the world. While the core of our product – strong encryption for cloud storages like Dropbox and co. – remains unaltered, the software itself went through many stages of diversification and evolution.
The discontinuation of Boxcryptor Classic was the first stage, followed by the introduction of our secure file transfer service, Whisply, in 2016. Last year, the release of Boxcryptor Enterprise, our solution for companies with 50+ employees, eventually followed. Now we may offer the perfect configuration for every application area – and we are continuously working on improvements to meet our customers’ needs even better. As we understand that our customers may lose orientation within this range of choices – and their respective special features – this blogpost provides you with a short overview of all products within the Boxcryptor Family in 2020. Check the advantages and restrictions of our different product licenses and do not disclose your cards when it comes to cloud usage!
Boxcryptor Free: Basic License for First-Timers
Using our basic version of the Boxcryptor software is free for private use and can be connected to one cloud storage provider of your choice right after installation. You can access your encrypted data from up to two devices, so you have everything available not only on your PC or Mac, but also on your mobile devices, like your smartphone or tablet computer. Furthermore, there is no “encryption light”. Boxcryptor Free complies with highest standards of data protection and allows optional two-factor authentication (2FA), already.
Example of use: Save private documents and pictures in the cloud. Perfect for trying out Boxcryptor. Create your Boxcryptor Account now and use it for free
Boxcryptor Personal: Cloud Security for Private Users
If you want to connect more than one cloud provider or more than two devices to your Boxcryptor account for private use, Boxcryptor Personal is the perfect choice: No more limits to the number of providers or devices. You can enable the optional filename encryption, so nobody but you, knows of the content you are saving online. Thus, documents of extraordinary importance like contracts and other personal data remains highly secured. All benefits of Boxcryptor Free remain valid, of course. In addition, you may contact our support team via email complementary to community support.
Example of use: Save pictures, music, contracts, personal documents, and more securely in the cloud, including garbling filenames through optional filename encryption. Get Boxcryptor Personal
Boxcryptor Business: Solution for Self-Employed Entrepreneurs
With Boxcryptor Business you are, contrary to the Personal license, allowed to encrypt data, used for commercial purposes, as well. Furthermore, as a special feature it enables you to create, manage, and share files within, user groups, thus simplifying workflows between you and your partners. Access management via single user permissions becomes obsolete in many use cases. Boxcryptor protects notes, contacts, and business contracts reliably from unauthorized access. Additionally, your support requests will be handled by our support team with a higher priority. Thereby latencies are reduced to a minimum.
Example of use: Secure your project data and contacts in any cloud storage of your choice. Additional group features enable simplified sharing of and collaboration on files. Get Boxcryptor Business
Boxcryptor Company: Data Protection for Small and Medium-Sized Companies
Our product for small and medium-sized businesses, up to 50 users enables you to individually scale the number of licenses, in steps of five. Starting with at least five users, you are getting a whole bunch of extended administrative functions – in addition to the features of Boxcryptor Business. The optional master key policy, for example, enables you to define a business-wide master password, protecting you against potential loss of individual user passwords. You remain in full control over all business data: like the single-user licenses’ private keys, we do never gain access to any of your files. Internal policies and Boxcryptor-related auditing are additional features of the Company license, as well as easy user management via optional integration of Azure Active Directory.
Example of use: Collaboration on encrypted files and folders within your company's cloud storage without abandoning flexibility. In case employees leave your company the master key policy, if enabled, protects you from loss of data – without compromising upon the reliability of the Boxcryptor security.

Boxcryptor Enterprise: Premium Solution for Companies and Teams with 50+ Users
Available since last year, Boxcryptor Enterprise is our premium solution for companies with big user numbers. The highest-value card in our deck provides numerous exclusive features, especially single sign-on (SSO) and automated account capture, to make Boxcryptor available to all users simultaneously. In addition, you may optionally self-manage your public keys so you keep absolute control over all your company’s user accounts. All features of Boxcryptor Company stay available as well. Enterprise customers further receive individual assistance from the very first day and with that, a dedicated account manager who will not only support with the initial implementation but stays available for requests at any time once Boxcryptor is set up and running. Another exclusive feature for premium customers is our extensive and efficient telephone support.
Example of use: Cloud security for 50 users and more, without any restrictions: sharing, collaboration and saving enterprise data has never been more convenient and secure at the same time. SSO grants almost immediate access to data for all employees, right out of existing databases, daily business is not going to be negatively affected – but protected by military-class encryption. All necessary routines and data protection guidelines may be realized with Boxcryptor Enterprise.
