Wouldn't it be great if you had a simple yet powerful utility to handle your zipping and unzipping needs... quickly and reliably... a utility that handled any type of .ZIP file as well as other archive types? What if it was from a trusted, long-standing, innovative company — the company who created the .ZIP standard... and all at an attractive price?

Introducing our newest entry-level PKZIP product: PKZIP for Windows, Standard Edition v6.0!

PKZIP for Windows®, Standard Edition enhances your data handling capabilities with:
A robust zip compression solution that zips your files to minimize storage and bandwidth utilization
Flexibility with the choice of working with a friendly Graphical User Interface, or with right-click ease within the Microsoft® Windows® desktop and Windows Explorer environments without ever having to launch the ZIP application
The portable .ZIP file format with archives that can be transferred to and decompressed on other operating systems
New for 6.0 Enhanced compression efficiencies with BZIP2 compression
New for 6.0 Ability to decrypt strongly encrypted .ZIP files created by PKZIP Professional Edition 6.0 with security powered by RSA BSAFE® security toolkit
New for 6.0 Ability to decrypt files encrypted using PKZIP Professional Edition's Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) strong encryption algorithm
Ability to shatter the 4 GB barrier with virtually unlimited .ZIP file size capacity

Features and Benefits

Graphical User Interface provides easy-to-use zipping and unzipping functions including drag and drop functionality, toolbars, menus and custom configuration options.
Right-click Functionality gives you the ability to easily zip, unzip, view .ZIP files, or modify .ZIP files from anywhere within Windows Explorer or the Microsoft Windows desktop.
Multi-Format Compatibility allows unzipping of any vendors' .ZIP files as well as .tar, .gz, .uue, .xxe, .hqx, .mim, MIME, .tgz, .cab, .jar, and many other commonly used archive file formats.
Intuitive Tool Bar Buttons make common zipping functions easy and accessible.
Easy Toggle On/Off Explorer-like Dual-paned File Manager Window for viewing an archive's contents, favorite archive files, multiple archive files and for quickly enabling or disabling digital signatures and/or password encryption.

Cross-platform Compatibility guarantees portability of PKZIP for Windows files to other operating systems including UNIX, Linux, OS/400, and MVS.

Basic PKWARE Password-Based Encryption secures your files* and .ZIP archives against unauthorized viewing.

Decrypt Password-Based or Certificate-Based Strongly Encrypted Files in an archive created by PKZIP Professional Edition 6.0. PKZIP incorporates the BSAFE security toolkit from RSA Security, enabling the highest standards in data privacy and authentication. Includes the ability to decrypt .ZIP files encrypted with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) strong encryption algorithm.
Use X.509-based digital certificates to authenticate signed files and leverage your PKI investment.
Virus Scan Support allows configuration of anti-virus programs to automatically scan zipped files.

Virtually Unlimited .ZIP File Size allows for .ZIP files exceeding 4-gigabyte archive limitation of other .ZIP products; create archives in excess of a terabyte in size!
More Files-per-archive allows a practically unlimited number of files files per .ZIP file — greatly exceeding the 65,535 compressed files limit of other .ZIP products.

Re-zipping Functionality allows you to edit the contents of a file or files directly within a .ZIP archive using the associated application — a tremendous time-saver, eliminating the need to manually extract edit and re-zip.

BZIP2 compression option can achieve up to 20% better compression than Deflate on many file types, including database files and text files. BZIP2 also optimally compresses XML data.
Stop or Resume Downloading of Files from the Internet via the PKZIP Plug-in that integrates with Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator for easy management of .ZIP archives downloaded from the Internet.

File Splitting or Spanning splits an archive into configurable segment sizes for storage on local drives or removable media. This feature is great for email attachments that are too large for many email systems.

Automatic Repair enables PKZIP to automatically detect and attempt repair of corrupted .ZIP files.
Data Integrity ensured by 32-bit CRC (cyclic redundancy check) when extracting compressed files.
File Information Modification allows for modifying file properties within an archive without requiring re-creation of the archive.

Telephone and E-mail Technical Support is available for those occasions when you need help using PKZIP. Visit our Support and Maintenance Service product page.
