WinZip today introduces WinZip® 18 Enterprise Edition, a new version of its award-winning file sharing application designed specifically for corporate and government clients. Building on the industry-leading compression, encryption and file sharing capabilities of WinZip® 18, WinZip 18 Enterprise also includes all-new features to meet the specific needs of global multi-user environments.

"For years, enterprise and government accounts have trusted WinZip to simplify file sharing and protect critical information. As the cloud offers users even more storage and sharing options, CIOs are faced with the challenge of giving employees the file sharing capabilities they need, while maintaining security and control over critical business information. Our new WinZip Enterprise edition addresses this head on by giving organizations the power to easily protect important information and manage how employees exchange files, all through a familiar environment that makes it simpler to share and collaborate," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.

WinZip 18 Enterprise brings together AES encryption, simplified file sharing and powerful IT control:

  • Enterprise Controls: Network administrator options make it easy for IT departments to control file sharing and protect corporate information. Companies can keep information safe with WinZip by managing which cloud storage, social media and file sharing services employees are allowed to access and enforce AES encryption and password protocols during the process.
  • Enterprise Installation and Configuration Guide: Comprehensive documentation makes it easy to configure WinZip 18 Enterprise for your organization's file sharing needs and ensures a fast and smooth deployment process.
  • WinZip® 18 Pro (Enterprise Edition): Including a special edition of WinZip 18 Pro, WinZip 18 Enterprise offers the full power of WinZip's premium file sharing application, plus new support for SharePoint and Amazon S3. Boost your organization's productivity by making it fast and easy to send files across email, SharePoint and Amazon S3, as well as IT-approved cloud and social media accounts - all from one application. Powerful FIPS 197-certified 128- and 256-bit AES encryption protects information as employees store and share files.
  • New WinZip® Express™ Add-Ons for Explorer, SharePoint and Photos: WinZip 18 Enterprise includes three new add-ons to give users faster access to commonly used sharing features. The add-ons offer a single dialog where users can access zipping, file conversion, encryption and sharing in one place, without launching the full WinZip 18 Pro application.
  • WinZip® Courier™ 5.0: This powerful email plugin software integrates with Microsoft Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 (32-bit and 64-bit) and webmail, including Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail/ and Gmail, to zip attachments into smaller, manageable packages that are delivered faster without issues. To keep files secure, WinZip Courier 5.0 offers 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption and wipes temp files to ensure the security of encrypted attachments. When working with large files that exceed email size limits, WinZip Courier can now automatically connect to SharePoint, Amazon S3, ZipSend™ and leading cloud services, making it simple for employees to securely send large files using their email application.
