The standard suite will work for most users, but you have to upgrade to the pro suite or the unlimited suite in order to get the cloud sharing for multiple accounts. So, if you are looking at just sending documents from one user to another user, the standard version will work, but if you are trying to use it as a calibration software, you will need to upgrade all users to the more expensive version to unlock those features.

Pros
Check Point Software Technologies
  • The product works with Windows, Linux, and OS X.
  • The management of Pointsec has really become very simple and centralized for all IT to handle with ease.
  • Preboot encryption keys in the form of a password, by inserting a USB drive containing the key and/or using a one-time password generating device such as an RSA token.

  • As was previously mentioned one of the greatest strengths of the program is the versatility of using across multiple platforms or being able to open the corresponding zip files on multiple platforms without having to install additional software.
  • Another strength it has in the the graphical user interface (GUI). It is, and always has been, one of the better ones in the industry, as compared to other compression software.

Cons
Check Point Software Technologies
  • Types of devices to control needs to be added like McAfee and GFI Endpoint Security.
  • Device whitelisting needs more granular level like by Vendor ID, Serial Number, Device ID etc.
  • Device Control and Media Protection on MacOS to be added.

  • When the dashboard comes up, it is not always intuitive as to the location of where files are going when unzipping; you have to click on the file to have the dialog come up.
  • Password-protection usage is complex.
  • Fewer icons as the number of them can be confusing.

Listen, nobody can get a perfect 10 (just ask your boss at review time, you can't say you are a 10 because then you'd have nothing to strive for!). WinZip's Support team knows their product, which is a fantastic thing to hear, unlike when you call giant companies (Microsoft, Vipre, and Norton) and their turnaround in their support center is so disgusting that their Support team only knows how to read off of a script

Symantec Encryption, a few management points led me to evaluate and not go with it.

7Zip is a freeware file compression software that does a lot of the same core functions as WinZip but lacks the cloud functions of WinZip. If you need to share extremely large encrypted zip files and don't mind paying, WinZip is a very powerful software and will get the job done.
