Encrypt mysqldump

I am currently creating mysqldump files and automatically Gzipping them which works very well.

However, Gzip doesn't seem to be able to password protect a file.  Is there another application that can zip and encrypt the dump all in one operation?

I was using Winzip command line which works, but I have to do the dump and then zip which takes ages.

Note that this is a Windows server.

Probably something like this:

mysqldump <options> | gpg --passphrase <password> -e -

Read gpg's manual for details and all options.
