Data compression eliminates redundant character strings in a file. This signifies that the compressed file consists of a more uniform distribution of characters. In addition to providing shorter plaintext and cipher text, that decreases the amount of time required to encrypt, decrypt and transmit a file, the decreased redundancy in the plaintext can potentially obstruct some cryptanalytic attacks.
