ZixCorp's easy-to-use solution replaces outdated technology

DOVER, Del. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 29, 2012-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, announces that Bayhealth Medical Center has selected ZixCorp® Email Encryption Services to replace its previous complex, outdated email encryption solution. By switching to ZixCorp, Bayhealth can better achieve patient privacy in email, protect the organization from data breaches and facilitate compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

"Bayhealth recognizes email encryption as an essential component in securing sensitive patient data and meeting our regulatory obligations. After experiencing difficulty with our previous solution, we re-evaluated our email encryption needs and determined ZixCorp's solution was simply the best fit," said Bonnie Millman, Bayhealth's Privacy Officer.

"Ease of use for our employees, as well as our business partners, and seamless integration within our environment were two of the driving factors in selecting ZixCorp Email Encryption Services," said Jim Welsh, Bayhealth's Network Services Manager. "After implementation and rollout, I'm pleased that the whole experience has been smooth and positive."

In the new three-year contract, ZixCorp provides secure email for 4,000 Bayhealth users, including physicians, nurses, administration and other staff members. Bayhealth exchanges secure email through ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service. ZixGateway automatically scans and encrypts outbound email with sensitive information, including protected health information.

For recipients who use ZixGateway, encrypted email is received transparently in their inbox, requiring no extra steps or passwords. For recipients who do not use ZixCorp Email Encryption Services, encrypted email is exchanged conveniently through ZixPort®, a secure Web portal.

"At ZixCorp, we constantly push ourselves to simplify the use of email encryption. We want our customers to feel confident that not only is the solution they've selected easy to implement and maintain but, most importantly, easy to use," said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We appreciate Bayhealth for recognizing the value of our convenient email encryption and making the switch to ZixCorp."
