WinZip today announces WinZip® 18 and WinZip® 18 Pro, new versions of its file sharing application that make it fast and simple to protect your privacy and share files across email, cloud accounts and social media. Improved file management and navigation, new Cloud Links and direct integration with SugarSync make it easier than ever to share and store files. All-new Express Add-Ons bring WinZip's most popular features including Zip, AES encryption and cloud sharing to applications customers use most. With powerful file protection, simplified workflow, an enhanced Zip engine and extensive cloud support, WinZip 18 is the essential companion for all your file sharing needs.

Redesigned to support all-new Express Add-ons, WinZip 18 makes it fast and easy to protect your privacy and share files anywhere:

  • New! WinZip Express Add-Ons: Instantly access WinZip features including Zip, encryption and cloud sharing with the affordable WinZip Express Add-Ons for Windows Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, Photos and SharePoint. For a limited time, download WinZip Express for Explorer free with your WinZip 18 purchase.

  • Enhanced! Cloud navigation: WinZip 18 lets you access and manage your files in the cloud as easily as the files on your computer. Send files to and from the cloud, save between cloud accounts, and monitor your cloud storage space all with WinZip.

  • New! Direct integration with more clouds: Share directly with Box, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, CloudMe and now SugarSync.

  • New! Cloud Links: Quickly send links to your cloud files by email, social media and more.

  • Best-in-class file compression: With an enhanced Zip engine under the hood, WinZip 18 now compresses Zip and Zipx files even smaller than before.

  • New! WinZip 18 Pro now includes Cloud Backup: Extending the backup capabilities offered exclusively in WinZip Pro, new Cloud Backup enables you to auto-backup to any connected cloud account, desktop folder or even between your cloud accounts.

"The last few years have seen a dramatic change in the way we store and exchange files. The cloud has provided us with tremendous benefits, but many users have concerns about the privacy, cost and complexity of this new way of sharing. When you think of WinZip's strengths - encryption to protect your information, smaller files to save space and bandwidth, and direct connections to services you use every day - WinZip has established itself as the essential companion for file sharing and collaboration," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.
