Encrypt Files on SSD with up to 200% Performance Boost in Jetico’s New BestCrypt
HELSINKI, Finland — February 12, 2020 — To stay up to speed with the latest storage technology, Jetico, long-trusted pioneer in encryption software, announced today an update to their BestCrypt Container Encryption. By optimizing data processing on virtual drives, Jetico's solution to encrypt files now delivers up to 200% performance boost.
"Encryption is commonly seen as a sacrifice – giving up performance to get security," claims Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman. "With this update, BestCrypt users don’t need to compromise – added security and performance boost are both delivered in the same leading-edge solution."
Traditional HDDs read and write data with a typical speed of 150 MB/s, while modern SSDs can go faster than 1000 MB/s. To leverage this impressive performance increase, BestCrypt’s engine is redesigned to optimize encryption operations and disk I/O in the driver.
Improvements can be seen on both HHDs and SSDs. The performance increase depends on the amount of data read from or written to the encrypted virtual drives. Results of Jetico’s internal tests:
- Around 20% increase for writing operations, or when handling just a few KB
- Up to 200% boost for reading operations
