BankPlus Signs Three-Year Contract Renewal for Zix Email Encryption

ZixCorp’s seamless user experience and valuable customer support ease email compliance and customer privacy for BankPlus

BELZONI, Miss. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 13, 2016-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announced that BankPlus, one of the fastest-growing banks in Mississippi with 57 locations, has renewed its contract for Zix® Email Encryption for three years. A customer since 2008, BankPlus continues to select Zix Email Encryption based on a seamless user experience for senders and recipients and reliable customer support.

“Our experience with the Zix solution has always been positive. Its automation alleviates any worry and provides a seamless workflow for our employees, and the delivery methods make email encryption as convenient as possible for our customers,” said Marc Forester, Assistant Vice President & Technical Services Manager and Security Administrator. “I’ve also been impressed with the technical knowledge and quick assistance of Zix’s customer support team. Nothing compares to the level of service we receive from Zix.”

BankPlus uses ZixGateway® to automatically scan and encrypt personal financial data and other sensitive information for nearly 900 employees, enabling the protection of customer privacy and assisting compliance with federal financial and state regulatory requirements. Recipients with ZixGateway can access encrypted emails without taking any extra steps or entering passwords through the benefit of automatic decryption. If recipients do not use ZixGateway, encrypted messages can be delivered seamlessly through Transport Layer Security (TLS) or in less than two steps through a mobile-friendly, secure Web portal.

“Email encryption is a best practice for compliance, but more importantly, it provides the security our customers deserve,” said Forester. “Customer data is vulnerable as it travels in email across the Internet. Zix Email Encryption keeps email easy while protecting our customers against theft and fraud.”

“The superior experience of our solution and support translates to peace of mind for banks and their customers, and we’re proud that after nearly a decade we continue to be a trusted partner as they face advancing and increasing threats to their data security,” said David Wagner, Chief Executive Officer of ZixCorp. “We are committed to maintaining our leadership in email encryption, and our investments in technology and people will enable us to remain the easy choice for BankPlus and our thousands of customers for years to come.”
