WinZip Computing, a Corel Company, today announced the release of WinZip® 16, the latest version of the world's #1 compression software. Featuring two exciting new web services - ZipSend, a web service for file sharing and ZipShare, a file sharing web application for Facebook® - WinZip 16 takes compression to a new level with the integration of complementary tools designed to help people share data even more efficiently, confident that their files are always secure.

New ZipSend and ZipShare Make Data Sharing a Snap

Email file size restrictions, undeliverable messages and disparate software tools are common pain points that too often prevent you from getting things done efficiently. With ZipSend, you can now email up to 50MB of zipped data at any time, for free. If you're a busy professional who needs to deliver larger files to clients and colleagues, ZipSend™ Pro lets you send up to 2GB per email message. As needed, you can secure your zipped files using WinZip's strong 256-bit AES encryption. Unlike other file delivery services, you won't have to manually copy and paste email addresses from your contact manager into a web page each time you send files. With ZipSend's email plug-in, just write an email, address contacts as usual, attach the file and hit send. ZipSend automatically detects when a file is too large and safely sends your files through the ZipSend cloud while inserting a link to the files in your outgoing email. With ZipSend, your email goes through and you don't have to slow down or stop when communicating with customers, colleagues, family or friends.

A further extension of WinZip's data sharing capabilities, ZipShare is a new file sharing web app that lets anyone zip files and post up to 20 MB of data directly to Facebook, for free. While it's easy to share photos and videos on Facebook, there are times when you might want to share other types of files, whether it's a club newsletter, fantasy league results, or school project. With ZipShare, it's simple and fast to share any file with your Facebook friends or privately to Facebook groups that you select. Photos and video clips can be shared without modification. In addition, your free ZipShare account lets you share up to 100MB of file storage space.

"For more than 20 years, WinZip has been trusted by millions of people to compress and securely transmit their most important files, content and information," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip. "Today as more people produce high resolution, multimedia content, they want an easier way to share a wide range of files with colleagues, family and friends. With WinZip 16 and the introduction of ZipSend and ZipShare, we're providing even faster, more efficient ways for people to share their most important data, whether they're sending files through email or sharing them on Facebook."
