"Until now, ARP-ZIP was provided as a utility to all Arpeggio customers,” notes Richard Brown, Arpeggio CEO. "Many of our clients have been archiving and sharing files through zipping and encrypting. We realized that even though ARP-ZIP is a simple tool, it could be quite useful to any organization running a System i. And unlike other free tools, ARP-ZIP has a native interface and supports various encryptions."
ARP-ZIP is a software tool that supports zipping and unzipping of many formats including ZIP, GZIP, TAR, JAR and BZIP2. ARP-ZIP supports several encryption methods including ZIP(password) and AES(128, 192, and 256). Its native command line interface makes integrating into any IBM i process easy, Arpeggio says.
