Knox is a uniquely integrated encryption and backup solution that makes securing your files easier than ever. Create as many encrypted vaults as you want, each with separate passwords. Then schedule automatic backups. You can even reformat USB sticks and external drives as encrypted Knox vaults - moving files between Macs has never been so simple and secure.

Knox uses the Mac OS X encrypted disk images feature, the technology behind FileVault, to protect your data. This means that your vaults are encrypted by the U.S. Government's new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with 256-bit or 128-bit key length. The AES more...

  • Fixed: Bug broken "Start on login" preference on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
  • Fixed: Bug creating extra backup files in some circumstances.

Is this application really just a front-end for making a DU encrypted image??

It would be helpful if the REQUIREMENTS included all the range of Mac OS versions the app works with. It would let me as a user know that the app did or did not work with Mac OS Lion 10.8.3 for example.

10.8.3 would be Mountain Lion, not Lion. Lion is 10.7

The developer's site is listed as Marko Karpinnen & Co.Llc. Shouldn't it be AgileBits?

AgileBits acquired Knox in May 2010. Maybe the original developer joined their team and brought his talent with him. In any case, if you click on the link to visit the developer's site, it takes you to AgileBits.

I could not be happier with this app. I tried so many others and had almost giving up. Then I thought about going to AgileBits website. I have used 1Password for some time now and love it. The people there have given unprecedented support. Sure enough I found Knox, EXACTLY what I had been looking for. Because of the flawlessly performance of iPassword and fantastic support I have experienced with AgileBits I didn't even bother with the 30 day trial, I just purchased it. And as I said, I could not be happier.

Big Thanks to the developers for both 1Password and Knox!

What this is missing is something that should be standerd, the ability to create ssl encrypted zip and rar files!

What benefit would that bring, when Knox already creates encrypted disk images? If you need encrypted zips, you maybe want to try Keka. BTW ssl is not an encryption algorithm but a network protocol.

The latest Knox used with Lion opens a phantom vault that was deleted way back. If I double click on the icon, it loops opening a blank window with no files. I have to quit Knox in order to kill the loop.

This phantom vault is not listed in the vault preferences, ergo cannot seem to get rid of it.

Fixed error unmounting vaults on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion but now it will not open at all for me. Worked great in Snow Leopard.

So how does that make it 0.5 stars?
This should be an email to the developer, not a 0.5 star rating.

This has been working flawlessly for me ever since. Good job.
The only downside is the price, especially since Knox is using OS X built-in features for some of it's core features.

Would be great if they could develop a utility that can mount/read the encrypted files on Windows.

The vaults Knox creates are Mac OS X Sparsebundles. These are Mac specific.

Yes it would be great to be able to read them in Windows. But to do so would require creating
1. An HFS File system reader for Windows - that needs to be updated whenever Apple updates OS X.
2. A sparsebundle utility to mount and read the encrypted files. This also has to be updated whenever Apple updates OS X.

Since there are few customers for these features, I doubt the developer wants to devote time and money to this feature - roughly $150 an hour for months of work every year.
