Zix Corporation Selected by Three Regional Healthcare Facilities; Organizations Sign Three-Year Contracts for ZixVPM Enterprise-Wide Encryption Service

DALLAS, Mar 08, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq:ZIXI), a global provider of secure e-messaging, e-prescribing, and e-transaction applications and services, today announced that three regional healthcare organizations have recently chosen ZixCorp as their secure email provider: Dallas Nephrology Associates (DNA), Southern Ocean County Hospital, and Community Memorial Hospital of San Buenaventura.

Each organization has signed a three-year contract for ZixVPM(R) (Virtual Private Messenger) email protection to help meet the security guidelines of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) by the April Security Rule deadline. ZixVPM will provide system-wide email encryption and includes a built-in HIPAA lexicon that detects outgoing protected health information to ensure compliance and patient confidentiality.

DNA, one of the nation's largest groups of practicing nephrologists, purchased the service for 300 users. Southern Ocean County Hospital, a New Jersey community facility, will have 500 users. Community Memorial Hospital, a nonprofit 240-bed, community-owned regional hospital and health center in Ventura, Calif., will protect the email of 499 users.

"The flexibility and interoperability of ZixVPM makes it an excellent choice for any organization, including mid-size facilities like these," said Rick Spurr, acting CEO, president, and chief operating officer for ZixCorp. "It integrates seamlessly with existing systems, requires no additional hardware or staff resources, and it's transparent to end users. Having an easy to use and deploy solution for our customers contributes to our contract renewal rate of 97 percent."
