BestCrypt: Cross-Platform Filesystem Encryption
My evaluation of this product has centered on functionality, usability, Linux-friendliness, support for algorithms I like and trust, and of course, overall polish. I think BestCrypt succeeds on all those counts, and based on the consistently high quality of Jetico's software in those areas, I'm willing to believe that their cryptographic implementations are equally meticulous and well executed.
In conclusion, BestCrypt is an impressive product. If stability, comprehensive and modular support for a variety of popular encryption algorithms, and overall tightness are anything to go by, it seems to be highly secure as well. I enthusiastically recommend considering BestCrypt for your filesystem encryption needs, especially if you use both Linux and Windows. It's helped restore some of my hope for a more crypto-enabled populace and has been fun to play with, too.
