We are in need of a software capable of encrypting data with AES-256 to store it in the cloud.

The problem is that I need a solution to work on Windows, Linux and OS X. Previously for Windows we have used 7zip, but it has no official support for Linux or OS X.

Thank you!

  • Maybe use 3 simple encryption/decryption command lines for each OS? This seems too trivial to make a cross-platform app for. – user1306322 Jul 20 '14 at 19:38
  • Some users are not used to use a cli. – Silithus Jul 20 '14 at 19:53

    What's wrong with unofficial p7zip packages? – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 20 '14 at 19:59
  • We are looking for something with official support; maybe even a commercial software. – Silithus Jul 20 '14 at 20:01

    7zip archives are compatible between all platforms. If you created an archive on Ubuntu and it failed to decrypt on Windows, then you made a mistake somewhere: corrupt copy or wrong password or something. – Gilles Jul 20 '14 at 20:39

I'd say truecrypt, it supports Linux, OS x, and windows and it supports AES-256 encryption. All your requirements. I think it is safe to say that Truecrypt is the most widely used and among the most trusted encryption software out there, and it is free and open source.
