An important part of her job is to equip employees with helpful software tools that are easy to implement, easy to learn, and easy to manage. Lisa noticed that many people were using several different applications to manage their files, protect their work, and share data between workstations. She also discovered that her company was unable to consistently manage how these applications behaved or how each employee used them. As such, company-wide policies regarding data archiving and file security were becoming difficult and expensive to enforce. Lisa investigated further and discovered that WinZip was the perfect one-stop solution for the kind of compression, encryption, and archiving tasks the employees had to perform every day. More importantly, WinZip was incredibly inexpensive and easy to roll out to all workstations via a single network install! As an added bonus, Lisa found that the network administrator could customize how WinZip behaves across all computers. As a result, company policies were enforced and all employees used the product in the same way when performing vital archiving and encryption tasks. Looks like Lisa found the ideal solution!
Bob is a graphic designer for a successful marketing agency.
Part of his daily routine requires that he send drafts of large projects to clients for review and approval. These might be full book layouts, image-heavy campaign materials, or full web page designs with a host of supporting files. Because Bob has WinZip Courier working seamlessly in the background, he can send his large files as email attachments without worrying that they will bounce back or even worse, overtax his clients' email servers and clog their inboxes. Bob simply attaches files to his email and Courier automatically zips them before the message is sent. What's more, Bob's IT manager set up Courier to automatically encrypt all email attachments being sent from Bob's work station. As a result, all his work is password-protected and safe from prying eyes. This makes both Bob and Bob's clients happy!
Adam is the IT manager for a successful chain of nursing homes across the United States.
Because his company handles vast quantities of medical information about each client under their care, they must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This federal law requires strict protection of the privacy and confidentiality of "electronic health information" managed by health care services (such as nursing homes like theirs). As a result, Adam must make sure that all computer stations in each nursing home have the ability to instantly and easily encrypt files. Initially, Adam implemented WinZip Courier with one simple network installation across the entire company. During this installation, he set up default preferences so that Courier automatically encrypts all outgoing email attachments enforcing a specific, pre-defined password policy. Upon further investigation, Adam also decided to install WinZip Pro across the company. Using the straightforward WinZip Pro backup wizard, he created an automated process that instantly organizes, zips, and password-protects medical files before uploading them to a dedicated archive. WinZip Pro even emails backup logs to Adam as part of the backup schedule! What a quick and easy way to comply with onerous federal requirements, all for a fraction of the price of other, more complex systems.
