    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.

    protocols, including FIPS 140-2 or FIPS 197 compliance during the
    process.

    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.
