1 in 4 U.S. Banks Now Use ZixCorp’s Email Encryption

Zix becomes preferred email security solution for the banking industry by making regulatory compliance easier

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 24, 2015-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, today announced that it has reached a milestone in the financial industry, with one in four banks in the United States using ZixCorp for their email encryption needs. Due to its ease of use, which facilitates compliance with data security and privacy regulations, ZixCorp Email Encryption Services has become the go-to email encryption solution for banks and financial regulators in the U.S.

As online banking and public awareness around information security have increased, banks seek to reassure customers that their financial assets and information are secure. By adopting ZixCorp Email Encryption, banks demonstrate that they value their customers’ personal information and are committed to protecting it. Through its ease of use, Zix Email Encryption helps ensure that sensitive emails leaving an organization are transmitted securely. Additionally, with ZixGateway banks can remove extra steps and passwords to enable secure email that is as easy to use as conventional email.

While Zix Email Encryption provides customers with the peace of mind that their emailed personal information is secure, it also helps IT staff sleep at night knowing that they have strengthened regulatory compliance by choosing the same secure and reliable email solution that is trusted by over 20 state banking regulators, members of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These regulatory bodies are part of a growing network of more than 11,000 companies called the Zix Encryption Network.

When companies implement ZixGateway, they join the world’s largest email encryption network that allows for the automatic exchange of encrypted emails among all members. Member companies have the confidence that every single email sent within the Zix Encryption Network is protected against interception with no extra steps for employees or member recipients. This makes communicating with any of the thousands of banks, regulators and business partners within the network seamless and hassle-free.

"With the high-profile breaches and hacks we’ve seen in the past two years, these have been some of the most challenging and uncertain months for members of the info-sec community,” said ZixCorp CEO Rick Spurr. “Amid all the chaos, it is reassuring to see the number of banks and other financial institutions in the United States placing their trust in ZixCorp for their email encryption needs. It is a testament to the team at Zix and the work they do every single day to ensure that we are constantly bringing customers the most secure and easy-to-use solution. We are proud to offer a product that is not only used by the banks, but is secure enough to be the No. 1 choice of the regulatory bodies that oversee banking security.”
