NordVPN set to introduce NordLocker for securing cloud or computer-stored files

by Brian Sims

NordVPN is creating a new cyber security tool. Designated NordLocker, it’s designed to secure files stored on a user’s computer or in the cloud with end-to-end encryption.

“We at NordVPN believe that the digital environment must be better than it is today,” urged Marty Kamden, CMO at NordVPN. “By releasing NordLocker, we want to make top-notch data security available for everyone regardless of their tech skills. To achieve this, we combine the best usability practices with the highest encryption standards.”

NordLocker will be a file encryption app for macOS and Windows. It will encrypt files stored on a computer or in the cloud. NordLocker is created using the two most secure encryption algorithms known today – Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256) and 4096-bit RSA. Additionally, the new tool will have NordVPN’s own zero-knowledge encryption process to ensure ultimate security. Users will not only be able to encrypt their own files, but also to share them securely by managing access permissions.

“Nearly all files contain bits of sensitive information and that makes them worth protecting,” added Kamden. “We expect that NordLocker will be popular both for personal use and for work-related cases, and especially so for those who work in multicultural environments.”

*At the moment, NordLocker is going through internal stress-tests. It’s expected that the first beta version will be released this summer. Sign up for early access is now available on NordLocker’s official website at https://nordlocker.com/
