WinZip 27 Delivers the Tools and Features Customers Need to Be Productive, More Collaborative, and Keep Sensitive Data Secure

New WinZip SafeShare makes it easy to share, compress, and encrypt files within one intuitive application

OTTAWA, August 30, 2022 – WinZip, an industry leading zip utility and complete file management solution, announced its newest product update — WinZip 27 — that offers customers an easy-to-use solution with tools and features designed to improve collaboration and increase productivity while keeping sensitive data safe. While security has always been an integral part of WinZip products, the addition of WinZip® SafeShare to the productivity apps makes it even easier to share, compress, and encrypt files by dragging and dropping files into the desktop application.

With remote and hybrid work becoming the new normal for companies, secure virtual collaboration tools like WinZip® 27 are essential for any business to ensure its employees remain productive. In a recent Corel Collaboration Survey, 70% of respondents agreed that poor collaboration is limiting their productivity and wasting their time. The latest WinZip 27 updates and user-friendly features help keep employees productive while making it easy for them to manage and share files in a secure way. By providing self-serve collaboration tools that are easy to use, IT admins can spend more time and focus on important business priorities.

“As organizations continue to adapt to the new world of work, employees need access to secure virtual collaboration tools, so company data remains safe, and teams remain productive,” said Henry Monteiro, Head of WinZip Product Management. “We continue to evolve WinZip with the ultimate goal of being the most trusted all-in-one solution that businesses can rely on, one that makes it easy for teams to collaborate and securely share files no matter where they are located.”
