Zix Corporation Selected by CIB Marine Information Services for Secure e-Messaging; Financial Company Signs Three-Year Contract for Enterprise-Wide Email Security

DALLAS, Sep 16, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq:ZIXI), a global provider of secure e-messaging and e-prescribing solutions and services, today announced that CIB Marine Information Services, a subsidiary of CIB Marine Bancshares, Inc., has signed a three-year contract for ZixCorp services.

The company purchased ZixVPM(R) (Virtual Private Messenger), a system-wide email encryption service that includes a built-in personal financial lexicon that automatically encrypts emails containing information defined by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) as personally identifiable financial data. This information includes financial identifiers, financial terms, and credit card numbers.

"Our regulators are pushing for secure communications, and ZixVPM makes complying with the requests easy. With ZixVPM, there's no software to install and it makes encryption easy for our end users," said Lee Abner, director of technology services for CIB Marine Information Services.

"The need for financial institutions to protect sensitive customer information is important to the credibility and reputation of an organization," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "ZixVPM is an effective method to prevent the release of this information via email communications, therefore maintaining the confidence customers have in their financial institutions."
