Encryption and Compression Tasks are SSIS task components that are used to compress or encrypt files within the control flow.

There are currently three components within this category, one to compress files using .zip, one to encrypt using PGP, and the other to generate hash values for any input data.

The following are the Encryption and Compression Task components available within the SSIS Productivity Pack and the link to their Help Manuals:
