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

There are currently two components within this category, one to compress files using .zip, the other to encrypt using PGP.

The following are the encryption and compression task components available within the SSIS Productivity Pack and the link to their Help Manuals:

  • Compression Task
    • Allows you to compress or decompress .zip files in the SSIS Control Flow.
  • PGP Encryption Task
    • Used to perform PGP encryption actions on a file in SSIS; it can be used to encrypt, decrypt, CreateSignature or VerifySignature.
