But note that zip passwords are not secure. How secure do you need the data file to be? Who needs access? You might get what you need from openPGP e.g. http://www.gnupg.org


Just wanted to endorse Austin's suggestion. GnuPG is what you want to be using if you need to encrypt data files (we use it for that all the time). Password-protected zip files are both insecure and inconvenient.
