FileWard DES is a handy tool designed to bring high strength data encryption to Macintosh users.  FileWard DES uses the cryptography libraries of OpenSSL to make the DES encryption cipher available in an easy to use drag and drop application.  Simply drop a file or folder into FileWard DES to encrypt it, or double click to decrypt it.  FileWard DES also brings convenient high strength encryption to the clipboard allowing you to encrypt any clipboard contents including text, pictures, spreadsheets, whatever!  In short, if you can copy it to the clipboard, FileWard DES can encrypt it.  FileWard DES even lets you encrypt binary files directly to the clipboard.  With FileWard DES, state of the art encryption of files and data is finally made simple.

If you have a secret, FileWard will keep it.
