Omitting Mac-specific invisible files:
Compress Files, lets you omit Mac-specific invisible files when creating
zip files. Invisible Mac-specific files can be extremely annoying when you
transfer Zip files to other systems. Windows and Linux make these files
visible and they could create confusion to recipients that receive your
files. Compress Files lets you specify if you want to omit Finder specific
information (such as the .DS_Store files) and Mac specific file attributes
(such as a resource fork) when creating Zip archives.

Encrypt your personal files:
Compress Files, lets you encrypt your personal data using encrypted disk
image. For high security, you can use Compress Files to encrypt part of
your hard disk through the use of an encrypted disk image protected with a
password. You can then also email this disk image to other people who know
the password. The image will show up as a volume on your desktop. When your
Keychain is locked, or when you send that disk image file to another
person, the image is secure. When your Keychain is unlocked, you can copy,
move and delete files as you would on any normal hard disk.
