SecureZIP helps users create and manage ZIP files, and other types of archives. It allows users to add, delete, and modify files and folders inside an archive for item management.
The graphical user interface allows users to quickly find where the most basic features of the app, like add and extract archived files, can be found. When installed, the tool will take over the WinRAR archiving system integration so it's best to choose what utility you'd like to keep. Nevertheless, the extra features can make it a new favorite among ex-WinRAR users.
With options that allow users to organize files and folders in the archive, their compression, extraction, and multiple other control features, users have a more flexible approach to archive their files.
PKZIP Self-Extractor allows users to create self-extracting archives. This type of self-extracting archives carries the .EXE extension instead of .ZIP or .RAR, and contains its own extraction engine. All this process takes place without the need of third-party software apps. SecureZIP can work well with all other archive formats, and users can set the program to check for .ZIP file association at startup.
SecureZIP can encrypt files the classical way using algorithms, like WinZIP and WinRAR, and it can also employ the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, or simply put, FIPS 140, which is a U.S. government computer security standard for accredited cryptographic modules.
SecureZIP is a powerful app that comes with support for archiving options and features which surpass mainstream apps like WinZIP and WinRAR. It provides improved archive management with the ability to add files and folders inside them. With Microsoft Outlook support, the app allows users to archive, encrypt, and send data via e-mail. Also, mail themselves can be archived straight from the message window or from the program’s interface.
Overall, SecureZIP offers great extra functions compared to other standard archivers. Featuring improved encryption methods and including the advanced PKZIP Self-Extractor, SecureZIP is a worthy alternative to WinRAR and WinZIP, even though it doesn't enjoy the same popularity as the two.
