Key Benefits


Role-based access management for sensitive and business-critical data

Flexible decision on which user groups are allowed to access which kinds of data


Persistent encryption protects data externally and internally

Protects Data at Rest and Data in Motion. Network management is strictly separated from key management to avoid unlimited data access for network administrators.


Convenient data access from all platforms and devices

All files are encrypted and decrypted directly at the users’ endpoint, regardless of the storage location.



LAN Crypt File and Folder Encryption – role-based file encryption software

LAN Crypt File and Folder Encryption adds an extra layer of security to your data. Its role-based access rights management enables you to avoid external access (e.g., by attackers or external consultants with administrative rights) and unauthorized internal access (e.g., by network administrators) within your organization. Given that, it is the ideal solution to ensure compliant data management.

The cryptographic keys used to encrypt your data are solely stored in a central database or the key ring at the user’s local machine, so you are 100% independent from the (cloud) providers you may use.

LAN Crypt File and Folder Encryption follow a strict role-split approach: The network administrator can access and manage files, and the security officer manages keys and security policies. This ensures a complete separation of network administration and security management.

LAN Crypt File and Folder Encryption’s 4.2.1 version is VS-NfD approved for ensuring data security in government operations. With this on-premises version, government agencies can ensure that sensitive files and folders are encrypted and protected against unauthorized access, providing an added layer of data integrity and compliance with stringent regulatory standards.
