“Zix continues to evolve our solutions to better serve our customers and
meet their needs. The acquisition of the Entelligence Messaging Server
business builds on our strength as the leader in email encryption and
allows us to accelerate our product roadmap,” said
EMS offers rich enterprise-centric capabilities and delivery methods, such as advanced message tracking, PDF statement delivery, high availability on-premises architecture and standards-based end-to-end encryption. Zix will continue to invest in and support EMS, as well as incorporate its features into its policy-based email encryption solution ZixEncryptSM.
To ensure a smooth transition and to best meet customer needs, Zix and Entrust Datacard have established an ongoing working relationship, and the companies have implemented a transition agreement to mitigate any post-close service disruption to customers. As part of the ongoing relationship between the companies, Entrust Datacard will become a Zix value added reseller, enabling Entrust Datacard to serve its customers’ email security needs with EMS and other Zix solutions.
“Choosing to migrate our Entelligence Messaging Server business to Zix
will provide our customers with access to the latest innovations in the
secure email market while continuing to benefit from Entrust Datacard’s
core security technologies via our ongoing relationship,” said
Zix currently expects the transaction to have no material impact on revenue, new first year orders or EPS.
