 PDF Version

INSURICA continues to place trust in ZixCorp’s policy-based email encryption solution to protect its customers

OKLAHOMA CITY & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 4, 2014-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announced that it has signed a three-year renewal agreement with INSURICA Insurance Management Network, one of the United States’ largest insurance brokers. INSURICA has been a Zix® customer since 2007 and continues to use Zix Email Encryption to conveniently protect employee email containing personally identifiable information (PII).

“We are constantly evaluating how we can proactively protect our customers’ PII, which is why we were an early adopter of email encryption. Years later, we can’t see ourselves using anything but Zix Email Encryption since it offers so much value and convenience,” said Jeff Nickles, Vice President of Information Technology. “Zix is constantly enhancing its solution with new features that benefit our organization. A critical feature that stands out is the automatic encryption that ensures sensitive information leaving our organization is protected. We don’t have to put the decision of what to encrypt in the hands of employees — instead, the decision is based on ZixCorp’s proven policies.”

Zix Email Encryption includes industry-leading policy filters that determine what emails should be encrypted to outbound recipients based on information contained within email messages, subject lines and attachments. Use of automatic encryption mitigates data loss and assists with corporate and regulatory compliance, without adversely impacting business operations.

“With daily news about breaches, more companies like INSURICA are turning to email encryption solutions to show customers they are taking the necessary steps to protect personal data,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Zix Email Encryption not only offers peace-of-mind but unparalleled ease of use to make email encryption effective and efficient for employees, customers and partners. We are proud that we have earned INSURICA’s confidence and its continued loyalty.”

“Zix Encryption Network gives us the reassurance that we have 100% secure, transparent communication with our largest business partners, carriers and other major players in insurance, which are already in the Zix network,” said Nickles.

INSURICA is one of 11,000 companies in the Zix Encryption Network. Every email exchanged between members of Zix Encryption Network is automatically encrypted, which allows the exchange of email without any extra steps or passwords. For recipients outside the network, ZixCorp offers a variety of delivery methods, including a mobile-friendly secure Web portal.
