    Collaboration and Teamwork: Boxcryptor is an Easy-to-use Encryption Software

    Seamless Integration with Box

    Boxcryptor works with a virtual drive. During installation it will automatically detect all your cloud providers on your machine, and add them to this virtual drive. For your first steps we recommend that you create a new folder in your Box in the Boxcryptor drive and encrypt it. Copy the data you want to encrypt into this folder. Everything you copy into an encrypted folder in the Boxcryptor drive will be encrypted automatically. This is the best part: Boxcryptor handles the encryption and you do not have to do anything. Since our encryption is on the fly, you will not notice it. You can work with your data as you are used to, as if the Boxcryptor drive were any other folder.

    Questions and Answers

    Does Boxcryptor use up more storage space on my PC or Mac?

    No, Boxcryptor does not use up more or double the space. Some users fear that we store files twice on the machine, encrypted, and unencrypted. This is not the case; the files are only stored once.

    Can I still share files and folders, even with encryption?

    Yes of course. You can easily share securely encrypted files and folders with other Boxcryptor users. For sharing with friends who do not use Boxcryptor or a cloud, you can use our service Whisply, which is fully integrated into Boxcryptor. However, at this point Whisply is only available for OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. It is not implemented for Box yet.

    How can the trustworthiness of the software be verified?

    Boxcryptor has been tested for security and vulnerabilities in an independent audit. The audit was carried out by the security firm Kudelski Security, with consistently positive results. Amongst other things, the insight into the code shows that no serious vulnerabilities were found by the security company. The full report is available on our blog.

    How secure is Box?

    Unlike hard drives, for example, data stored in the cloud is very well protected, as physical events like fires or burglaries can not affect your cloud-stored data. Nevertheless, individuals have to secure files that they save in a cloud since many cloud storage providers do not offer end-to-end encryption. With Boxcryptor, you can encrypt your data before uploading it in the cloud.
