DALLAS, Jun 13, 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 the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) has identified ZixCorp email encryption services as a commercially-available, proven option to serve the needs of the state banking regulators.
ZixCorp has made a group purchasing program available to CSBS's 54 members to purchase ZixVPM(R) (Virtual Private Messenger) and ZixMail(R) secure email services. ZixVPM is an enterprise-wide email encryption service with a built-in personal financial lexicon that automatically encrypts emails containing personally identifiable financial information including financial identifiers, financial terms, and credit card numbers. ZixMail is an easy-to-use on-demand desktop encryption solution for individuals.
"Interoperability, especially when using TLS, and the ability to send to anyone whether they have encryption software or not are important factors for secure email communications to government entities, financial institutions, and their customers," said CSBS Technology Committee Chairman James Cooper.
"This association impacts financial institutions in every state and U.S. territory," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "It is highly important that this type of confidential information be transmitted securely and easily within the state banking system to partners and constituents. Security breaches can seriously harm the reputation of this community -- secure email is one way to prevent such occurrences. We're proud to have CSBS join the ZixCorp family."
