CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - YouSendIt, Inc., a leader in business content collaboration services, today announced a partnership with WinZip Computing, a Corel Company, bringing the power of YouSendIt's proven platform to ZipSend, WinZip's new file delivery service. The partnership offers seamlessly integrated file delivery services to WinZip's installed base of 60 million users. Developed by WinZip in close collaboration with YouSendIt, ZipSend allows users to easily send multiple files and folders in one secure, zipped package from their current email application or from WinZip 16.
"By partnering with YouSendIt, we are able to deliver a superior product at scale that helps our users efficiently and seamlessly share large files, without interrupting their workflow," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip. "With ZipSend, users get the best of both worlds: WinZip's best-in-class file utilities and YouSendIt's industry-leading service for sending, receiving and tracking files."
WinZip's client applications automatically connect to the ZipSend file delivery service whenever the user sends files greater than a certain size limit (typically, five megabytes). ZipSend allows users to:
- Easily send large files without the bounce-backs associated with email inbox limits.
- Send password-protected files using strong government standard AES encryption.
- Instantly track and control file access online.
"When professionals can collaborate without worrying about file sizes and can share information freely, innovation and success follow," said Brian Curry, vice president of product and business strategy, YouSendIt. "ZipSend, built on YouSendIt's platform with APIs available today, is an example of how we're continuing to break down communication and workflow barriers by extending secure file sharing from within today's popular applications."
