Together, WinZip Self-Extractor and WinZip make it faster and easier to share sensitive electronic files securely -- whether it's your company's new software update or your personal income tax info
Mansfield, Conn. (PRWEB) March 5, 2009
WinZip Computing, a Corel Company (NASDAQ:CREL; TSX:CRE), today announced that it has updated its popular Big Zipper bundle with the newly released WinZip® Self-Extractor 4.0. The latest version of the bundle includes the new WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0, along with WinZip 12 Pro and WinZip E-Mail Companion 2 at the value price of $59.95. Customers can learn more about the new Big Zipper bundle and WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 at http://www.winzip.com/prodpagese.htm .
WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 is used in conjunction with WinZip 12 to easily create secure, self-extracting Zip files that can be downloaded or sent using various file-share services or other distribution methods like FTP. Self-extracting Zip files can contain multiple compressed files, minimizing download time and ensuring that important files do not become separated from the package. The recipient receives a familiar Windows® interface that makes it easy to decompress files without needing a separate Zip utility.
Also ideal for creating self-extracting files for distributing programs and drivers, WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 enables the user to include a setup or installation program to automate the installation process. By making the installation simple, there's no need to send complex instructions to the recipient.
"Together, WinZip Self-Extractor and WinZip make it faster and easier to share sensitive electronic files securely -- whether it's your company's new software update or your personal income tax info," said Craig Kallin, Vice President of eCommerce and Marketing. 'And now with support for the industry-leading JPEG compression from WinZip 12.0, WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 makes it easy to share large collections of digital photos, without having any impact on image quality.'
WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 Supports:
- JPEG compression for lossless compression of digital photos and other JPEG image files -- up to 25%
- LZMA compression
- WavPack compression for lossless compression of .WAV (audio) files
- Unicode to ensure international characters are displayed for filenames in a Zip file
- 128- and 256-bit AES encryption for secure file distribution…and much more.
WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0 is available as part of the Big Zipper bundle for $59.95 and can also be purchased on its own for $49.95.
