Protect Files 1.0 released

Apimac has it has released the first verison of Protect Files, a new encryption utility. The software is used to encrypt various items on a Mac, but operates on the concept of Encrypted Spaces, instead of straight file and folder selection. A wizard guides users through the creation of a special volume on a drive, where anything placed inside will be automatically encrypted. The volume must then be unlocked with a password before anything can be added or altered.

A Space is optimized for room whenever it is used, and owners can either choose the default of 128-bit AES encryption, or select 256-bit AES, an option found in the program's settings. Protect Files is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and costs $15. A free trial version is also available through the Apimac website.

    Huh?

    Does this do anything other than just create a sparsebundle?

    Sure, it creates an encrypted sparsebundle (maybe not even a sparsebundle)!

    Then again, there's a lot of users who neither know about disk images or encrypted disk images.
