Introducing WinZip® 18.5 Enterprise, a new suite of applications with robust security features including FIPS 140-2 compliance. Now it's easy for corporate and government customers to implement enterprise-level encryption across their workforce and protect critical data. Organizations can boost productivity while taking advantage of secure file sharing across email, enterprise platforms and the cloud.

The WinZip 18.5 Enterprise suite includes the new WinZip 18.5 Pro Enterprise Edition which has been updated to deliver FIPS 140-2 compliance along with a streamlined UI, direct access to instant messaging, and simplified cloud navigation and sharing.

Designed for global, multi-user environments, WinZip 18.5 Enterprise provides powerful encryption options (including FIPS 140-2 compliance and FIPS 197 validation), easy file sharing and customizable IT controls. Updates include:


--  WinZip® 18.5 Pro Enterprise Edition: Now with FIPS 140-2 compliance in
    Windows FIPS mode, WinZip 18.5 Pro Enterprise Edition offers the full
    power of WinZip 18.5 Pro along with SharePoint and Amazon S3
    integration. Boost your organization's productivity by making it fast
    and easy to unzip files, create zip files, and send files across email,
    enterprise platforms, as well as IT-approved instant messaging, cloud
    and social media accounts. New enhancements in 18.5 include direct
    support for instant messaging, integration with MediaFire and
    Zipshare®, and a streamlined interface that simplifies file navigation
    and cloud sharing. 
--  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, instant messaging, social media and file sharing services
    employees are allowed to access, and enforce encryption and password
    protocols, including FIPS 140-2 or FIPS 197 compliance during the
    process. 
--  Enterprise Installation and Configuration Guide: Updated documentation
    makes it easy to configure WinZip 18.5 Enterprise for your
    organization's file sharing needs and ensures a fast and smooth
    deployment process. 
--  WinZip® Express(TM) Add-Ons for Explorer, Office, SharePoint and
    Photos: WinZip 18.5 Express Add-Ons give users faster access to commonly
    used sharing features. Zip files, convert files, encrypt and share from
    one place, without launching the full WinZip 18.5 Pro application. The
    all-new WinZip Express Add-On for Office, along with the updated
    WinZip® Express(TM) for Explorer, SharePoint and Photos, offer FIPS
    140-2 compliance and a new, modernized UI. 

"In today's corporate environment, security and encryption have never been more important. Easy file sharing has simplified the way we work, but without the right protection, unfortunately it can also leave organizations at risk. With the new WinZip 18.5 Pro Enterprise, we're giving government and corporate accounts the controls they need to boost productivity while keeping information safe. Extended FIPS 140-2 compliance gives IT the power to easily protect important information and manage how employees exchange files in accordance to their regulatory obligations. A modernized UI and new Express Add-Ons give users direct access to the zip and file sharing features they use most. It's never been simpler for organizations to safely share and collaborate," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.
