Manage WinZip using Group Policy

WinZip is on all your desktops and all your users use it. So how are you going to manage its critical settings

  • Enforce password requirements
  • Remove “Cameras” tab ability
  • Set up Explorer Context Items
  • Enforce where users Save, Extract, and store temp files

… and just about every other WinZip setting?

WinZip itself has no native Group Policy support with ADM or ADMX files to control these key settings, so what are you going to do? Watch this video to find out:

The best part is all the “PolicyPak superpowers” you just learned about in this video (showing WinZip as an example) are also available for tons of OTHER applications – including ones you might be deploying in house or have custom made.

Our solution isn’t a mere “ADM” template, it’s a true Group Policy extension, with powerful management and lockdown capabilities. PolicyPak can deliver, lockdown and revoke critical settings – the way you need to using Group Policy.

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and mimics the user interface of the WinZip application itself. You can set key settings like Password settings and enforce the User Interface (UI) behavior on the target machine, like what is seen here.
And you can manage the file locations where items are stored, like what is seen here
Truly lock out your target user’s user interface, and make sure they cannot change what you put down. On this target user’s system, the Administrator has delivered and locked down critical security settings, removed other settings from the user and prevented access to certain troublesome tabs

With PolicyPak and the free Pre-Configured PolicyPak for WinZip, you get full control over WinZip using Group Policy. True granular control for each OU or user – using normal Group Policy controls.

Doesn’t this seem like the right way to manage your desktop applications in your enterprise and Windows 7 and Windows XP?

Again, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage WinZip, you’ll also be able to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way:Firefox, Java, Acrobat, and any custom application you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free. It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing WinZip today PolicyPak is ready for you today, and for all applications you want to manage and lockdown in the future.
