Zix Corporation and Code Green Networks Launch DLP-Based Email Encryption

Email Encryption Leader Collaborates with Leading DLP Provider to Ensure Powerful Safeguard Against Unauthorized Disclosure

DALLAS and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, and Code Green Networks, a leading provider of data loss prevention (DLP) solutions for protecting customer data and safeguarding intellectual property, today announced an integrated DLP-based Email Encryption solution. The integrated solution provides accurate data loss prevention across all network channels together with a policy-based email encryption service to secure the communication of sensitive information in email.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Content Monitoring and Filtering and Data Loss Prevention was released in June 2008. The report stated that the "market's total value was an estimated $50 million in 2006, and $120 million in 2007. Gartner believes it will reach $200 million to $250 million in 2008."

DLP prevents the inappropriate dissemination of sensitive information. Moreover, the most efficient communication mechanism is email, and businesses need to be able to communicate certain sensitive information securely. By combining DLP with email encryption, business exchanges of sensitive information can continue while preventing loss or inappropriate access. Based on an organization's needs, Code Green Networks and ZixCorp offer two different tightly integrated solutions for delivering DLP-based email encryption. With both integrated solutions, a Code Green Content Inspection (CI) Appliance is deployed at the organization's Internet gateway to inspect all network traffic and enforce policy-based encryption on outgoing email. The CI-Appliance can either be paired with a ZixCorp email encryption appliance also located at the customer site, or it can be integrated with ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service. With both integrations, the connection between the Code Green CI-Appliance and the ZixCorp network is over a secure channel encrypted with TLS (Transport Layer Security), ensuring secure communication from the point the email leaves the customer network.

"Ensuring privacy of our members and protecting our brand is absolutely critical," said Nancy Stevenson, Vice President of Information Technology for Ascend Federal Credit Union. "Implementing an integrated DLP-based email encryption solution will lower the overall costs and complexity of securing confidential data across all channels."

ZixCorp is the leader in software as a service (SaaS) email encryption for regulatory compliance.
