Zix Corporation Announces Webcast Showcasing Email Encryption Competitive Replacement

Large California Healthcare System to Address Key Issues of Security, Risk & Cost
DALLAS, July 7, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced an upcoming webcast featuring Daughters of Charity Health System on Thursday, July 10 at 4:00 p.m. ET. The webcast will feature Michael Day, Director of Information Technology, and Ajay Chaudhari, Network Design Specialist for Daughters of Charity and they will discuss their process for choosing and implementing a solution: how they built internal buy-in, identified and addressed potential pitfalls, and made critical decisions on replacing their previously implemented system with ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service.

To register for this informative webinar, please visit http://www.zixcorp.com/info/health or call 866-257-4949.

Additionally, the ZixCorp website is now featuring a Daughters of Charity success story that outlines issues that will be discussed during the upcoming webinar. Below is an excerpt from the success story:

"The security of protected health information (PHI) is very important," said Michael Day, Director of Information Technology for DCHS. "Not only from a regulatory standpoint enforced by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), but because our patients and staff need to have that confidence in us."

Not satisfied with the email encryption solution they were using, DCHS switched to ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service.

"With our old solution, we were concerned we were at risk of not properly protecting our patients' sensitive data or other important business information," said Day. "It was also a massive challenge to administer the whole process from installation through to mailbox management, information tracking and overall maintenance. We needed a more efficient and thorough process."

Day liked what ZixCorp had to offer because of its ease of use and excellent reputation as the leading email encryption solution for health care organizations. "It was simple to set up, fast to deploy, and transparent to use," he said. "It has a better hit rate of encrypting messages than our previous solution. ZixCorp's service detects PHI and other sensitive information and ensures they're secured before delivery."
