Zix Corporation Retains Cameron Associates as Investor Relations Advisor; e-Prescribing and Email Encryption Industry Leader to Proactively Engage Investment Community

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2006--Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq:ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced that the Company has retained Cameron Associates, Inc., a full-service New York-based investor relations firm, as its investor relations advisor. Cameron will assist ZixCorp in broadening its financial market presence and in establishing new relationships with the investment community.

"We have recently announced a series of actions to leverage our leadership position in each of our two core markets -- email encryption and e-prescribing -- to propel the Company toward cash flow breakeven and ultimately profitability," said Rick Spurr, chairman and chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "Our near-record performance in our email encryption business is driving improvement in our financial results, and our differentiated approach of offering email encryption as a hosted service along with our developing partnership channels should fuel continued growth in this business. We've combined that financial foundation with the significant upside potential of e-prescribing, where we are the clear leader in an industry that continues to build momentum as the healthcare sector places greater importance on the need for the safety and efficiency provided by this technology. With this invigorated business strategy, we believe we are now prepared to take a more proactive stance in our communications with the investment community. We are excited to be working with Cameron Associates to support this new initiative."
