If not properly protected, these files could be vulnerable to attacks by hackers and other unauthorized users.

About Open PGP Encryption

Conventional encryption methods uses a single key or password to encrypt and decrypt information. This key or password has to be kept secret, otherwise the data could be compromised by an attacker. The main challenge with this approach is determining how to share the key or password with only the intended recipients in a secure manner.

In contrast, Open PGP encryption is a dual-key (asymmetric) encryption system which uses a combination of a public key and private key. The public key is used to encrypt the file while the corresponding private key is used for decryption. The public key can be shared with your partners using traditional email or FTP since the public key is only used for encryption (it cannot decrypt the data).

Open PGP, also known as GPG, is a popular encryption standard that is supported by popular commercial PGP solutions. GoAnywhere OpenPGP Studio supports a wide variety of encryption algorithms including AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) and TDES ciphers.
