is a program developed for both home and enterprise users. APO uses the strong AES-256 algorithm and is used to encode secret files. This algorithm is so strong that it would take hundreds of years to penetrate it, and a very powerful machine as well.
The program is suitable for Windows and is available at the price of $24.95.There are several features that make APO a great choice for security-concerned users:
- Good speed when encrypting files;
- Many options and settings to play with;
- Ability to shred, compress and transport data;
- FIPS certification;
- Army level of encryption - AES-256 algorithm.
On the other hand, only one drawback of the software has drawn the attention of security researcher Ventsislav who reviewed the program: "The program has easy access to the settings where the location of the “.key” file used for the decryption of the files can be seen by anyone who opens it."
