Integrated email protection
WinZip Enterprise users can now integrate WinZip Courier with Microsoft Office more easily, Outlook, and other webmail services. Moreover, you can find all the essential information about WinZip Courier right on your home screen.
This integration gives WinZip Enterprise users direct access to WinZip Courier’s robust features, allowing you to easily encrypt emails and attachments for extra security and smooth communication.
File scanning for threats
With the latest version of WinZip, you can now easily scan both encrypted and unencrypted zip files before ever opening them.
Leveraging the user’s existing virus scanner, this new smart feature protects your devices from harmful threats like malware and ransomware, ensuring your data remains safe. This way, you know you’re opening files without any viruses, improving your digital security and overall experience.
Modern home screen
The newly refreshed home screen offers customers a versatile platform that goes beyond compression functions. It lets you stay updated on the latest product news and developments, such as exciting apps, the Ideas Portal, and a tour of the self-serve knowledge base.
Submit your ideas and suggestions in-app
WinZip values your input and has now made it easier for you to share your ideas and suggestions. You can now submit your thoughts directly in the app or online and even vote on other people’s ideas.
From there, our team carefully reviews these submissions, which will help shape the future of WinZip’s development roadmap. This helps us better understand your needs and challenges over time, guiding us to make choices that result in more features you’ll love.
In-app support is now available. This feature provides a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) within the app and easy links to our online support page and knowledge base.
Our new in-app support feature is designed to help customers find answers to common queries independently, reducing the need to wait for a support response. Moreover, it’s a more efficient way to get help and empowers users to resolve issues independently.
Enhanced secure backup
We’ve improved our secure backup feature. WinZip now enables you to back up and recover your data safely, safeguarding against hardware issues, software glitches, mistakes, and unforeseen disasters.
This ensures that your files remain accessible even during emergencies. Additionally, customers can now effortlessly back up folders by simply right-clicking on them.
Our enhanced WinZip SafeShare feature makes sharing files through email even simpler. This lets you effortlessly attach or link your files while adding an extra layer of security.
You can encrypt files with a password and set an expiration date to ensure only the right people access them. Plus, you can remove personal data, add watermarks, and combine PDF files as needed.
Additionally, emails are presented in an even more user-friendly format, providing recipients with more relevant information.
In-app user surveys
Your feedback helps us understand your needs, improve our products, and build stronger connections. We truly value your input, as it’s invaluable in shaping our future developments.
With our new update, we’ve introduced a simple way for you to share your thoughts with us through in-app ratings and surveys.
