A Company Continues to Build on Record Number of Customers in the Financial Services Industry Added This Year

DALLAS, Oct 11, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced that Michigan-based Monarch Community Bank has selected the company's Email Encryption Service to provide secure communications for bank employees.

ZixCorp Email Encryption Service provides a built-in personal financial lexicon that automatically detects email containing information mandated by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) as personally identifiable financial information such as Social Security numbers, account numbers, credit card numbers and contractual terms. ZixCorp's data center has 99.99 percent availability and supports a network of over 6 million protected email addresses. Additionally, the data center is SysTrust(R) certified and SAS-70 Type II accredited which indicates the highest standards in the industry for security, confidentiality, availability and integrity.

"We looked at several email encryption vendors and ZixCorp's hosted service was the most robust offering on the market," said Dave McKinley, Manager of Information Technology for Monarch Community Bank. "The staff at Monarch Community Bank found the service especially appealing because it allows our customers the ability to communicate directly and securely with us through a customized, web-based, secure messaging portal hosted by ZixCorp."

ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service provides automatic seamless encrypted email among all ZixCorp customers. The company has four of the five federal banking (FFIEC) agencies as customers and hundreds of banks and credit unions have joined ZixCorp's network so they can easily communicate with their regulators. ZixCorp supports five encrypted email delivery mechanisms including S/MIME, TLS, OpenPGP, secure portal and "push" delivery.

"The financial sector continues to be the company's fastest growing segment in part because of our strong and successful relationship with the federal regulators," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "ZixCorp's easy-to-use, quick-to-install service is ideal for the banking community. Our hosted service enables fast, safe communication to business partners and customers and helps the bank avoid data leaks, bad publicity or fines from regulators."
