Iowa Division of Banking Selects Zix Corporation for Email Encryption; State Regulatory Agency to Safeguard Business Communications with ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 21, 2006--Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced that the Iowa Division of Banking has signed a contract for ZixCorp's award-winning Email Encryption Service.

"Financial services are one of the most regulated industries in the country and the Iowa Division of Banking is committed to maintaining privacy and security with our electronic business communications because the institutions we communicate with expect confidentiality," said Vaughn M. Noring, Bank Bureau Chief, Iowa Division of Banking. "ZixCorp's outstanding reputation in the government and finance sectors and the company's numerous government association memberships made our email encryption choice clear."

As the leading email encryption provider with over five million protected email recipients, ZixCorp's vast network allows seamless encrypted email delivery to healthcare organizations, insurers, financial institutions and regulators, including four of the five banking regulatory agencies. ZixCorp now supports five encrypted email delivery mechanisms, including S/MIME, TLS, OpenPGP, secure portal and "push" delivery.

"Our Email Encryption Service enables financial organizations like the Iowa Division of Banking to deliver nonpublic personal information securely, which protects privacy, significantly reduces the risk of loss of reputation, prevents data leaks and solidifies customer trust," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "As the only significant hosted service for email encryption, ZixCorp continues to increase its presence in the finance and government sectors as we provide easy-to-deploy solutions that aid companies in adhering to compliance guidelines such as GLBA and security breach statutes in more than 30 states that require public disclosure when unencrypted confidential information has been compromised."
