Data Encryption in Kaspersky Total Security 2018

Latest update: July 18, 2017 ID: 13676

The Data Encryption component in Kaspersky Total Security 2018 protects your information against theft and prevents data leakage.

The data is stored in an encrypted form in a special vault. A vault is an encrypted file that you can create using the Data Encryption component.

Vaults are encrypted with the AES XTS 256 block cipher with an effective key length of 56 bit. 

A password is required to access the data stored in the vault. You can only access the data in the vault from the computer with Kaspersky Total Security 2018 installed. Upon unlocking a vault, the files within are automatically decrypted. They are then re-encrypted once the vault is locked again.
