Zix Corporation Extends Superior Ease of Use and Security for Its Hosted Email Encryption Solutions

Research & development remains a strong investment to address evolving customer needs and further strengthen customer confidence

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 5, 2016-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, enhances its email encryption capabilities with the latest release of ZixPort® and an update to ZixGateway® Hosted. By extending ease of use and security, Zix:

  • Empowers customers to extend email encryption to senders outside their organization:
    Ideal for healthcare, financial services and title organizations facing compliance requirements, a new ZixPort feature authorizes select users, such as contractors, strategic partners, agents and board members, who are outside their organization, with the ability to send encrypted email to anyone inside and outside the customer’s managed domain.
  • Expands single sign-on (SSO) through Web authorization services:
    Recipients can automatically access encrypted email in ZixPort using their credentials for Google and Microsoft services. Available across desktop and mobile devices, SSO through Web authorization services makes encrypted email available with a single click, offering recipients a more convenient experience and enabling two-factor authorization without added hassle.
  • Strengthens security departments’ situational awareness by enabling security information and event management (SIEM) usage of email encryption events:
    ZixGateway Hosted allows administrators to pull its encrypted email data logs into a syslog format for integration with their SIEM solution. Such capability gives customers increased security and compliance visibility beyond the organization’s perimeter and further strengthens their SIEM investment.

“Zix is the market leader in email encryption because of our continued investment in products that deliver unrivaled user experiences and valuable administrative controls,” said David Wagner, Chief Executive Officer of ZixCorp. “Recent email hacks of the Democratic National Committee, Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton have shined a light on the vulnerability of email, and we are well positioned to deliver a seamless solution and meet increasing demand from businesses, government organizations and consumers who can no longer ignore the significant loss of sensitive data and privacy in email.”

An early pioneer of Cloud-based solutions, ZixCorp has provided hosted services through ZixPort since 2000, enabled ZixGateway Hosted for large enterprises in 2007 and expanded ZixGateway Hosted to SMBs with less than 1,000 employees in 2014. Data loss prevention solutions ZixQuarantineSM and ZixInsightSM and bring your own device security solution ZixOneSM are also available to customers through a hosted environment.

“Leveraging analyst research and input from customers, prospects and influencers, we have developed a forward-thinking roadmap for 2017 and beyond that raises the strength of our hosted offering to an even higher level,” said Kelly Haggerty, Vice President of Product Management & Strategy for ZixCorp. “By committing to the advancement of our hosted solutions, we can meet evolving market demands and remain a reliable email security partner for our customers long into the future.”
