DataLocker SkyCrypt Editor's Review

Storing data in external hard drive is what any PC user can resort to but Cloud storage is gaining popularity with time. It gives you more flexibility and you can avail free and cheaply priced data storage in cloud as well. The only aspect that keeps users worried about Cloud data storage is security. If cloud services seem attractive to you but security related worries are a concern, try DataLockerSkyCrypt. It will let you encrypt cloud stored files securely.

DataLockerSkyCrypt is not freeware. It runs on Windows XP and later version equipped computers. Installing the app on 3 PCs with a license is possible.

After you launch the app for the first time, it lets you make an encrypted folder in a cloud-storage service you want. Having the local client of that service installed is necessary. It is compatible with popular cloud services like Amazon Cloud Drive, SkyDrive and Google Drive. You may select a cloud folder which appears as local folder. Then you are required to provide a password to safeguard the SkyCrypt drive. It rates strength of password and remembers the password by default. The downside of the service is forgetting the password can be disastrous when you choose not to auto save the password.

After setting password, you need to set a drive letter for SkyCrypt drive. At last step, you can back up the drive’s security token. After the cloud-based SkyCrypt drive is set, you can begin using it just like other folders on your PC. You just need to drop files in that folder and it will get encrypted fast. As you launch a file or copy from the SkyCrypt drive, decryption kicks in. In other words, encryption and decryption remains largely invisible to users.

In default mode, SkyCrypt remains secured just by Windows account password. However, based on your needs, imposing additional security measures is possible. You may set the app not to mount the drive automatically when it is launched. The app also supports Google Authenticator for deploying two-factor authentication.

Sharing encrypted file is possible as long as the other user also has SkyCrypt installed. This limits the app only to Windows users. Lack of Mac and mobile support can be a downer for some users, especially those who use both PC and Mac. The recipient needs the password and security token to access shared file. This step may make security conscious users a tad worried though.

DataLockerSkyCrypt deploys tried and tested 256-bit AES encryption to encrypt files used on our system. The Cipher Block Chaining method used by it will satisfy users paranoid about data security. The encryption and decryption takes place locally.

Positive Points:
•    Simple and effective cloud data encryption.
•    256-bit AES encryption.
•    Includes three PC license.
•    Customization of security level.

Negative Points:
•    No support for Mac.
•    Sharing process may raise security concerns.

Conclusion:
DataLockerSkyCrypt is ideal for users who store a lot of data on cloud services but worry about security. It simplifies encryption and decryption of cloud data. The setup and sharing is simple. Data is encrypted with military grade AES encryption and Cipher Block Chaining method elevates the security level up one notch. However, lack of support for Mac makes the app unsuitable for workplaces. The data sharing method may also make security conscious users worried.

Rating:4.0/5
