About AxCrypt

The history of AxCrypt started in 2001 when Svante needed to share confidential data over the Internet and failed to find existing data security solutions for Internet services that were both simple and easy to use for everyone. It was then that he developed and released the first version of AxCrypt through his company Axantum Software and shared it with others for free.

In 2014 after 13 years on the market, AxCrypt had grown to be one of the world’s most popular encryption softwares with over 20 million downloads worldwide. Axantum Software then teamed up with ZoCom and founded AxCrypt AB to take AxCrypt to the next level.

After two years of hard work AxCrypt 2 was released on April 29, 2016.

Our mission is to provide individuals and small teams with encryption solutions that are easier to use than ever before. We’re removing the complexity from the use of strong and proven cryptographic technology.

We are a highly motivated, creative and powerful team that is passionate about making data security solutions simple and reliable for individuals and teams.
