“I would recommend MegaCryption because it does what it says, handles our current needs and future needs that will arise, has more functions than other products, and the cost of the product was great. I would rate the technical support as a 10.”

Naples, FL – March 3 2020 – Advanced Software Products Group (ASPG, Inc.) has announced the release of MegaCryption 6.5.0 which offers new features that can be utilized alongside financial organization’s Sheltered Harbor projects.

With cyberattacks becoming more advanced, the financial industry is often the top target of hackers. These attacks can cause a ripple-effect, harming both the financial services industry as well as public confidence in the financial sector.

The basis of Sheltered Harbor allows financial institutions to have a protection plan in place should an unauthorized data breach occur. Sheltered Harbor has been founded with this in mind, designed to protect financial institutions if a data attack has occurred and their policy enforcement has failed. Aimed at restoring public trust in the financial sector, Sheltered Harbor provides backup and recovery standards to financial institutions to ensure their data is safe and the reputation of the financial services industry remains intact.

Utilizing MegaCryption v6.5.0 alongside Sheltered Harbor is well suited for banks, credit unions, broker-dealers, asset managers, and service providers seeking to improve their organization’s cyber resilience. MegaCryption helps assist an organization’s Sheltered Harbor project by working alongside existing systems to implement strong data encryption.

Working alongside a core component of Sheltered Harbor, known as data vaulting, MegaCryption’s MCGSAGCM utility provides users with a highly efficient alternative for file-level cryptography using GCM authenticated encryption to allow for the processing of large data volumes. A newly added zEDC (Enterprise Data Compression) feature can be utilized by OpenPGP and Zip/Unzip utilities, providing accelerated compression capabilities up to 95%, especially useful during the transmission of data to Sheltered Harbor data vaults.

Finally, an Enhanced Compression Mode (ECM) provides significant savings for customer’s CPU savings, a savings figure which offsets the cost of encryption workloads and saves an organization vast processing times.

ASPG is pleased to offer special pricing and complimentary product training for Sheltered Harbor certified organizations that license MegaCryption. Additionally, the ASPG technical support team offers a specialist webinar series for users who license MegaCryption alongside Sheltered Harbor.

Interested parties can learn more about MegaCryption and Sheltered Harbor at Free trials of the software are also available. The ASPG technical support team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For more information, call the ASPG sales team at 800-662-6090 (toll-free) or 239-649-1548 (US/International) or email at
