 PDF Version

ZixDLP mitigates email breaches with outbound monitoring and quarantine capability

VENTURA, Calif. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 10, 2013-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that Ventura County Credit Union has added ZixDLPTM, an email-specific data loss prevention (DLP) solution, to its current Zix™ Email Encryption Services under a three-year renewal agreement. With ZixDLP, Ventura County Credit Union can monitor sensitive information in outbound email and prevent it from leaving the network using ZixCorp’s proven policy and content scanning capabilities with its convenient quarantine system.

ZixDLP automatically scans outbound email. If a policy is triggered, the email is sent to a quarantine system for review by a manager, and the employee receives a notification message. Embedded in the notification is a link where the user can easily review the quarantined email message. Administrators can give employees the capability to release the email with justification noted or delete the email and draft a new version. Through an intuitive console, administrators can also:

  • Easily define policies and create custom lexicons for quarantining email messages
  • Conveniently manage quarantined messages using flexible search and filter options
  • Release or delete individual or multiple quarantined messages with one click
  • Review reports that monitor quarantine activities and trends

In just the last six months, several companies have reported breaches where employees incorrectly emailed sensitive information, leaving the personal data of thousands of people in jeopardy. ZixDLP mitigates this risk by quarantining any emails that may not be appropriate to send outside a company’s network. ZixDLP can be easily combined with ZixGateway® or other Zix Email Encryption Services.

“As easy as it is to hit ‘send,’ it’s no surprise that sensitive information can be emailed to the incorrect person or attached to the wrong email. ZixDLP helps prevent those errors with a straightforward approach that decreases the cost and complexity of implementing and managing DLP,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of ZixDLP, and we thank Ventura County Credit Union for its continued confidence in our security solutions.”

Ventura County Credit Union became a Zix customer in 2007 and is among more than 1,900 financial institutions that use Zix Email Encryption. ZixCorp is also trusted by all U.S. federal financial regulators, including the National Credit Union Administration.
