Cincinnati Children’s Signs Fourth Email Encryption Contract with Zix Corporation
 PDF Version

Zix enables seamless and secure communication between Cincinnati Children’s and its partners

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 24, 2015-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that it has signed its fourth contract with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, a ZixCorp customer since 2005 and one of the most distinguished pediatric hospitals in the United States. Zix Email Encryption enables Cincinnati Children’s more than 8,000 users to send emails containing sensitive information safely and securely.

Hospitals are required to secure electronic protected health information (PHI) in order to comply with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. That makes the use of encrypted email a business necessity. Zix Email Encryption automatically helps to prevent emails containing PHI from slipping through the cracks unencrypted. That is why one in every five U.S. hospitals use ZixCorp solutions.

Another key benefit of Zix Email Encryption is ZixDirectory, the world’s largest email encryption network. With over 44 million members and growing, ZixDirectory simplifies the process of sending and receiving secure mail by automatically and transparently managing the secure delivery of email between member organizations. Cincinnati Children’s communicates with more than 1,400 partner organizations in the ZixDirectory, meaning 100 percent of those emails are secured through transparent email encryption — with no extra steps required.

“Cincinnati Children’s Hospital sets a great example of an organization realizing the power of ZixDirectory,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s chief executive officer. “Our commitment to providing leading organizations with effective security solutions that are easy-to-use and don’t inhibit day-to-day workflow has enabled us to earn and retain customer loyalty resulting in these long-term contractual relationships.”
