WinZip 21 Pro Enterprise offers compliance with the latest FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 197 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules, and support for Windows Information Protection.
Satisfies all Federal requirements: Ensure your organization meets government requirements for FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption, both at rest and during exchange
Meets open data requirements: With WinZip 21, your organization can comply with the White House order on open data formats that are affordable, and easy to use and manage
Detects FIPS-enabled computers: WinZip 21 detects whether it is running on a FIPS-enabled computer and uses Windows functions as part of the compliance process
Adjusts to your requirements: Choose Strict or Relaxed mode, based on your organization’s compliance needs.
Uses Windows FIPS 140-2 certified encryption/decryption logic: When FIPS-compliance is enabled, WinZip 21 uses Microsoft APIs designed to support developers creating FIPS 140-2 compliant code.
Note: When IT enforces Windows FIPS mode, users will be fully compliant with FIPS 140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules. If, through human error or otherwise, users somehow stray outside Windows FIPS mode, they will still be protected by strong FIPS 197-certified encryption.
Strong security in Windows Standard mode
For computers that are not Windows FIPS support-enabled, your organization will still benefit from strong WinZip security features, including:
FIPS 197 support: WinZip 21 uses strong FIPS 197-certified AES 256-bit encryption when running in Windows standard mode
Customizable password policies: Your IT team can configure the complexity requirements for passwords which WinZip will enforce for you
Watermarking and PDF conversion: Deter unauthorized use of company information by adding custom watermarks to images and PDFs, and converting Microsoft Office files to non-editable PDFs
Additional security features protect your organization
NEW!Windows Information Protection support: WinZip 21 offers added security for enterprise customers with support for Windows Information Protection (WIP). Using WIP, IT administrators can set protocols to control the movement of information and files based on whether files are defined as “work” or “personal”. WinZip respects these admin controls and gives the enterprise all the benefits of WIP when using WinZip 21.
Protection from Filename spoofing: WinZip checks that the file names are consistent at the beginning and end of the file data so employees do not accidentally open a harmful file hidden in a zip
Support for Windows download security protocols: WinZip does not open zip files that are downloaded or received as Outlook attachments if they have the Windows Security Flag set
Checking files paths: WinZip will not display files containing a string with anything in the form of "\.\" or "\..\", and users can not extract them
Hidden extensions warning: WinZip alerts users if they try to open a file from inside WinZip with a name that is longer than what is currently displayed on the screen
Windows Baseline Security Analyzer support: WinZip runs file extensions (such as .exe, .bat, .com, .msi, .ps, .bas) through this Windows analyzer. If a file is flagged, the user must acknowledge that they still wish to open the file
