⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Intuitive, Simple to use, Powerful

"I think the title says it all. Never had to look at the documentation as it is that easy to use. However, don't let the simplicity fool you. It is a very powerful tool. I spent about 4 weeks trying to classify and evaluate/encrypt 3000+ fields in our org. Once I installed this tool, I was able to evaluate and encrypt, start to finish, in one day." - Joey Rubino
