Completely off-topic and I have no knowledge of this product, but "encro" sounds like a poor play on the words "encryption" and "Mocro" - the latter being slang for Morocco/Moroccan, popularised some time ago in Dutch by rappers of Moroccan descent, and currently by the book and TV-series "Mocro-maffia".

Can't believe that would truly be the origin of this name...
