Reliable, Easy-to-Manage SaaS Solution Offers Security without the Hassle

MANCHESTER, Conn. & DALLAS, Mar 15, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, announces that Manchester Memorial Hospital, an acute community hospital within the Eastern Connecticut Health Network, has finalized a three-year contract renewal for ZixCorp(R) Email Encryption Services. Manchester Memorial Hospital began using ZixCorp Email Encryption Services in 2004 and now after 6 years is renewing yet again.

In 2004, Manchester Memorial Hospital implemented email encryption to provide security for patient information and to comply with regulations. ZixCorp was selected, because it offered the leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution and provided strong models for implementation and maintenance.

"ZixCorp offers a straightforward solution. Our users experience no issues, and there is little work on our part to ensure our email is protected," said Renee Broadbent, Associate Chief Information Officer and Information Security Officer for Eastern Connecticut Health Network. "Within our department, we have so many systems to manage, including a large data center, and we really appreciate that ZixCorp just works."

As a SaaS solution, all technology maintenance and upgrades are managed by ZixCorp with little to no maintenance for the customer. SaaS solutions also offer the latest in technology enhancements without the investment cost of new, on-premise technology.

"ZixCorp has delivered email encryption as a SaaS solution since the company's founding, even before SaaS became an industry term and a trend," said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "SaaS enables us to provide our customers with the most up-to-date email encryption technology with little hassle for the customer. We're thankful that Manchester Memorial Hospital sees the value in our reliable solution and has remained a loyal customer."
