Jetico Disk Encryption Leads Forward with Safe and Easy Upgrade to Windows® 10 Creators Update
BestCrypt Volume Encryption Satisfies Users of Encryption Software with Migration to Windows® 10 Without Decrypting the Drive
HELSINKI, Finland – July 20, 2017 – Jetico, leading-edge developer of encryption software, announced today version 3.75 of BestCrypt Volume Encryption. By removing the time-consuming and risky need to decrypt and re-encrypt the boot drives, Jetico’s long-trusted solution for disk encryption now enables safe and easy upgrade to Windows® 10 Creators Update, also referred to as RedStone 2 (RS2).
"Beyond a more transparent, time-saving way to upgrade your computer, this BestCrypt update ensures that your security and compliance integrity is not compromised, as data is no longer decrypted and exposed," explains Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman.
Starting with the Windows® 10 Anniversary Update RS1 release, Microsoft allows non-native software vendors to include custom drivers into the installation environment. By using the /ReflectDrivers command line option, systems encrypted with BestCrypt Volume Encryption are now upgraded transparently.

- Upgrading from Windows® 7, Windows® 8, Windows® 8.1 or Windows® 10 TH1/TH2
