ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service Ensures Online Communication Privacy for Credit Union That Serves U.S. Department of Justice
DALLAS, Nov 27, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(r)) (Nasdaq:ZIXI), the leader in email encryption and e-prescribing services, today announced that the Justice Federal Credit Union has selected ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service. The Justice Federal Credit Union is the premier provider of retail financial services to the justice and law enforcement communities.

Currently, 40 percent of the credit union's members are non-local with a global presence offered through the Internet. The Justice Federal Credit Union chose ZixCorp's service for email encryption, which includes pre-configured policies that encrypt email containing sensitive information. This service helps prevent accidental transmission of confidential data.

"We serve the financial needs of the U.S. Department of Justice, their employees and their families and a major factor in our decision to find an email encryption service provider is that online privacy is absolutely critical to our Department of Justice members," said Rifat Ikram, Vice President of Electronic Delivery and Support Services for Justice Federal Credit Union. "ZixCorp offered a comprehensive and painless way to protect that sensitive member communication."

As the leading email encryption provider with over 9 million protected email recipients, ZixCorp's vast directory allows seamless encrypted email delivery to healthcare organizations, insurers, financial institutions and regulators, including the federal banking regulatory agencies. ZixCorp supports five encrypted email delivery mechanisms, including S/MIME, TLS, OpenPGP, secure portal and "push" delivery.

"More than 500 financial institutions have selected ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service to ensure seamless, secure email communications with their partners and customers," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer of ZixCorp. "The nation's top financial organizations, such as the Justice Federal Credit Union and the influential federal and state financial regulators, continue to join the ZixDirectory, the largest email encryption directory in the world. The ZixDirectory uniquely enables communities of interest that require frequent email interaction, such as the healthcare, government and finance verticals, to have instant and transparent communication with all of the other members of the directory. As more customers join the ZixDirectory, the value of this network increases for every member."
