There is steady improvement in the methods of sharing data and backup of important files online while very little is done by most cloud storage providers to improve privacy. This has made online data vulnerable to attack by hackers and cybercriminals. Effective compression techniques and encryption will minimize the file size on the storage device without affecting the quality or data integrity.
These compressed and encrypted files are secure and cannot be decompressed nor decrypted without the right tools. Bandizip is a computer program that offers symmetrical encryption and encryption of data while ensuring that the file remains authentic after decompression.
How Can Bandizip Help You?
Bandizip is a handy file compression software that makes archived files accessible only to authorized persons. It has an intuitive interface that improves its ease of use. It also has “drag and drop” capabilities which is useful while creating a list of files to be archived.
The program supports various compressed file formats including popular ones like ZIP, 7Z, CAB, RAR, TGS, GZ, TAR and lots more. It also supports disk image formats like ISO, and IMG as well as the creation of self-extracting files. When creating a new archive, you need to specify important details such as the desired file type, title, compression level, splitting method, password and output destination.
For advanced users, Bandizip offers more configurations related to compression and encryption. Users can choose what happens to the original file after compression or the compressed file after decompression.
