Check Point Endpoint Media Encryption and Port Protection (Pointsec)

Check Point Endpoint Media Encryption and Port Protection (Pointsec) is well suited for Microsoft Windows environment. While, for MacOS it is less appropriate.
Raj Kumar Jha | TrustRadius Reviewer

WinZip

It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.

I haven't had to use any of the support channels to use the program, as it is very intuitive and easy to use for the first time using it. They do have a number of support options available via their sites, such as KB articles, FAQ, and the option to submit an online support request. What doesn't seem to be available is phone number for users to call in for support. This can be frustrating for users that need immediate help, as it appears the quickest turnaround time if you are submitting an online request is 1 day.

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

I recommend using 7-Zip because the interface is simple and it does not install other tasks and notifications.
