“It’s amazing to have so many cloud storage options for saving our files, but all this storage creates file management headaches and serious privacy issues too. Every day seems to bring another high-profile story about cloud accounts hacked and data stolen. It’s almost impossible to know where your files are really being stored and if they’re protected,” said Patrick Nichols, president of WinZip. “With the new WinZip 19, we’re making cloud storage and sharing simple and worry free. One easy-to-use app enables you to add your own powerful encryption to keep your info safe, while also managing all your files and accounts. WinZip 19 lets you take advantage of all the benefits of the cloud for storage and sharing, without the risks.”

Boosting productivity with a dramatically optimized user experience, WinZip 19 makes it possible to manage all your files, zip and unzip, and add powerful AES encryption, through a single, unified file-sharing environment.
