WinZip is one of the original Windows-based ZIP archivers available on Windows and has been around for much longer than much of the competition. It features integration with Windows Explorer, support for tons of different compression formats and includes support for AES encryption, a method to keep things secure.
With WinZip, it is also possible to password-protect archives, making it difficult or almost impossible for prying eyes to access files inside the archive . When choosing a password for a ZIP file with WinZip, it is important to make sure you choose a password that is more-or-less secure from guessing, avoid using common words and mix up letter and numbers so that popular ZIP password finders and crackers are unable to make unlimited guesses on what the password may be.
Apart from password protecting, WinZip features two different versions both available as a trial download. They are the Standard and Professional editions. WinZip also supports CD and DVD burning and automated backup.
