You can use beyond compare, while uploading the file it will do what you asked.
As nattygreg mentioned, you can use Beyond Compare, but it's not a free program:

It'd only compare ZIP to ZIP though, not ZIP to the original uncompressed file. You can use 7-zip to test the integrity of the zip file before uploading, then compare the uploaded zip to the local zip.

A free alternative to Beyond Compare may be WinMerge 2011, which is said to have FTP support, not sure if that include SFTP too though:
