"We know that organizations will get the maximum benefit from compression and encryption if it's delivered through a tool that fits seamlessly into people's everyday activities.

WinZip 15 incorporates a new zip architecture that offers performance advancements while giving WinZip the flexibility to deliver all-new product offerings to improve Zip file creation and sharing on and across multiple platforms. Now incorporated into WinZip 15 for Windows (Standard and Pro versions) as well as the recently-released WinZip Mac Edition, this new technology will also serve as the foundation for WinZip's upcoming mobile products for iPhone®, iPad®, and Android®, planned for early 2011.
"By re-designing the WinZip compression and encryption engine, we're able to deliver the power of WinZip in unique new products to serve customers on new platforms.
