Trusted company reputation and unique approach to BYOD gives confidence to Third Coast Bank

HUMBLE, Texas & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 3, 2014-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announced that Third Coast Bank SSB has selected ZixCorp’s bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution, ZixOne, ® to protect corporate email accessed by employees on their mobile devices. ZixOne provides added protection for both customer and bank data by not allowing corporate email to reside on the device – a unique approach unlike other BYOD solutions.

“Mobile devices give us the opportunity to enhance productivity and customer service by accessing work when we’re away from the office or during off hours, but we could not compromise our customers’ privacy in the process. We needed a mobile security solution that effectively protected customer and bank data with little disruption to our employees,” said Betty Hughey, executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Third Coast Bank. “ZixOne assists us in achieving our ultimate goal – to protect our customers and their privacy while efficiently managing their financial needs.”

ZixOne is a secure mobile app that enables easy access to corporate email, calendar and contacts. If a mobile device is lost or stolen, an administrator can simply disable access to corporate email from that device. Since ZixOne does not allow corporate email to reside on the device, it does not need to be wiped remotely, a functionality that has created tension with employees and barriers for BYOD adoption.

“As an existing Zix email encryption customer, we know the company and trust its solutions,” said Hughey. “We want the most secure BYOD product, and with ZixOne, we are confident that our customers’ information is protected and that our employees can access corporate email wherever and whenever they need it.”

“Organizations like Third Coast Bank should be focused on customer satisfaction and employee productivity — not headaches around corporate data loss with mobile devices,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s chairman and chief executive officer. “In industries of all types, ZixOne helps organizations enable BYOD, without jeopardizing data or creating additional hurdles for employees.”
