Thirty Percent of U.S. Banks Use Zix Email Encryption to Protect Customer Data

Ease of use and peace of mind earn Zix a trusted reputation among banks and other financial institutions

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 1, 2017-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, increased its market share to 30 percent of U.S. banks that use Zix® Email Encryption to securely communicate with customers, partners and regulators. Zix’s unrivaled ease of use and the peace of mind delivered by its email encryption are top factors in gaining the trust of banks and other financial institutions.

In addition to the company’s share of U.S. banks, Zix Email Encryption is the solution of choice for all members of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, more than 20 state financial regulators and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“We’re incredibly proud to achieve another milestone in the financial services industry. To earn and keep the trust of 30 percent of U.S. banks is a testament to not only the quality and benefits of our email encryption but our continued strength and leadership in email security for more than 15 years,” said David Wagner, ZixCorp’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our customers can rely on Zix to maintain the highest standards and further enhance our solutions to address increasing data threats and evolving needs.”

Zix Email Encryption is easy to use for both employees and recipients. Using ZixGateway, a policy-based email encryption solution, employees maintain their usual workflow as outbound email is automatically scanned by Zix content filters. Encryption is triggered if sensitive information is identified in the subject, message or attachments, alleviating any extra steps for employees.

For recipients, Zix delivers encrypted email through the most convenient and secure option with its patented Best Method of Delivery. If recipients use ZixGateway®, secured emails are automatically decrypted and arrive in their inboxes transparently, without requiring any passwords or extra steps. If recipients do not have ZixGateway, encrypted emails can be delivered seamlessly through Transport Layer Security (TLS) or in less than two steps through a mobile-friendly, secure Web portal.

Zix’s ease of use and automation increase adoption and provide peace of mind for security and compliance teams responsible for securing customer data, protecting their organizations’ reputation and meeting regulatory requirements outlined in the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act.

“The stress to keep customer loyalty from drifting to competitors is overwhelming. The last thing any bank security or compliance professional wants is to jeopardize customer trust with a breach notification and headlines in the local news,” said Wagner. “We understand that pressure and are committed to making sure our financial customers can confidently leave email security to us, so they can focus on other security threats and customer priorities.”
