News | 18.09.2019

OTTAWA, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Introducing WinZip 24, WinZip 24 Pro, and WinZip 24 Enterprise, the latest versions of WinZip’s industry-leading encryption, file management, and compression software.

With solutions to meet the needs of virtually any individual or business, WinZip makes it simple to keep files secure when saved locally, on a network, or in the cloud.

Choose WinZip 24 to make secure file sharing faster and easier.

  • NEW! Search Files Faster: Use the new built-in search feature to quickly track down files stored locally, on the network, or in cloud storage.
  • NEW! Experience Better Zipx Compression: WinZip adds the ZSTD compression method to Zipx. With ZSTD, WinZip can compress and decompress many file types faster, while achieving compression rates better than DEFLATE and DEFLATE64 compression methods.
  • NEW! Do More and Work Faster in the Files Pane: Windows Shell Extensions are now accessible in the WinZip Files pane. Plus, pin favorite local, network, and cloud-based files to the Quick Access section of the Files Pane.
  • ENHANCED! Get Improved Zip File Performance with Direct Access: Bump up cloud-stored Zip file performance by downloading only parts of a file as needed. The larger the Zip file, the better performance. Direct Access now downloads extra Zip file parts in the background while the user chooses files to unzip or view.
  • ENHANCED! Switch Easily Between Zip and Zipx: Use a simple Ribbon toggle to switch between Zip or Zipx when creating or saving a file.
  • ENHANCED! Manage File Clutter More Efficiently: Set a schedule for WinZip’s Cleaner Tools to find computer, network, or cloud storage files that haven’t been used in a while and decide if they should be deleted, zipped, or relocated. New Ignore option lets you exclude files from being flagged again.

WinZip 24 Pro offers all the power of WinZip 24, plus the following new capabilities.

  • NEW! Combine Multiple PDF Files into One PDF: Convert multiple PDF files into a single PDF file to save, zip, or share. Organize the order of pages, then combine and protect them with WinZip’s PDF security features.
  • NEW! Create Custom, Filter-based Cleaners: When using the enhanced WinZip Cleaner tools, WinZip Pro also enables users to customize their filter-based cleaners.
  • NEW! Create Backup Jobs from Explorer: Select files in Windows Explorer then click Create a WinZip Job and choose when and how often the job runs. WinZip walks users through Zipping and storing selected files, optional notifications, and sharing features.

WinZip 24 Enterprise builds on the power of WinZip 24 Pro in a flexible offering that’s designed for IT deployment and can be customized for virtually any corporate or government environment.

WinZip 24 Enterprise now supports additional enterprise cloud services, including OpenStack and SwiftStack regions and credential files, Alibaba, Wasabi, HP, Oracle, Azure, WebDAV, CenturyLink, IONOS and OVH cloud providers. WinZip 24 Enterprise also supports Amazon AWS Regions (including GovCloud), IBM Cloud, and RackSpace. WinZip Enterprise enables IT departments to implement enterprise-level encryption across their workforce and guard IP and critical data in multi-cloud network environments. Integrating directly with corporate-standard SaaS services SharePoint and Office365, WinZip Enterprise can be configured to provide optional access to Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, CloudMe, SugarSync, and MediaFire. With industry-standard AES encryption, this fully customizable solution is an essential tool for any organization working with compliance requirements, including FIPS 140-2, FIPS 197, HIPAA, DFARS, and EU regulations such as GDPR.
