SAG's Pension and Health Organization Signs Three-Year Agreement with ZixCorp
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 18, 2007--Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq:ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced the Screen Actors Guild - Producers Pension and Health Plans (SAGPH), has signed a three-year contract for the Company's Email Encryption Service.
ZixCorp will enforce the SAGPH email security policies to ensure secure handling of confidential medical information for its members. The service includes a pre-configured lexicon that automatically detects and encrypts protected health information (PHI). SAGPH will use the company's email encryption gateway in addition to ZixDirect(TM), which uses clientless "push" technology that sends encrypted messages directly to the recipient's inbox. ZixDirect is ideal for SAGPH when sending secure email to members or business partners that don't have encryption capabilities.
"SAGPH offers healthcare and pension services to more than 45,000 members of the Screen Actors Guild and their dependents across the country and it is essential that we protect the privacy and security of our member information. We needed a cost effective encryption partner with a strong track record in the healthcare and insurance industry to secure our communications and prevent data leaks," said Daniel Leung, Director, Enterprise Infrastructure Services for the Screen Actors Guild - Producers Pension & Health Plans. "ZixCorp's directory of users includes many of our business partners in the insurance and healthcare industries and the encryption service is so easy-to-use, we know we selected the right service to protect and manage our sensitive information."
"ZixCorp continues to be the leader in securing email for the healthcare sector. The Company's Email Encryption Service offers the healthcare community a large interoperable network of health insurance plans and healthcare organizations through our ZixDirectory," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "As the only significant hosted service for email encryption, we can provide Screen Actors Guild - Procedures Pension and Health Plans immediate access to our large community of users quickly and easily."
As the leading email encryption provider with seven million protected email recipients, ZixCorp's vast network allows seamless encrypted email delivery to healthcare organizations, insurers, financial institutions and the federal banking regulatory agencies. ZixCorp now supports five encrypted email delivery mechanisms including S/MIME, TLS, OpenPGP, secure portal and "push" delivery.
