Zix Enters Advanced Threat Protection and Archiving Markets with the Unveil of New Solutions

ZixProtect delivers a multi-layer ATP approach for detecting zero-hour malware, ransomware, phishing, spam and viruses in email

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 18, 2017-- Zix Corporation (Zix), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email security, has launched ZixProtect to defend its customers against malicious email. Leveraging multi-layer filtering techniques, ZixProtect protects organizations against zero-day malware, ransomware, phishing, CEO fraud, W-2 phishing attacks, spam and viruses in email.

To accurately identify email threats, ZixProtect filters analyze IP addresses and URLs then examine content for targeted phrases, campaign patterns and both known and zero-hour malware attacks. Accuracy is increased further with real-time threat analysts, automated traffic analysis and machine learning.

“The level of sophistication from hackers and criminals requires an email security solution that combines all the right components – contextual filters, human analysis and artificial intelligence. Businesses can rely on ZixProtect to optimize these components, reduce risks and keep legitimate communications flowing,” said Dave Wagner, Chief Executive Officer at Zix. “We’re especially proud of the experts behind ZixProtect, whose energy and acumen to defend our customers and thwart attacks are exceptional.”

Real-time analysis is conducted at Zix’s Center of Excellence for Advanced Threat Protection, where security experts monitor email threats 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. A cloud-based service designed for convenient maintenance and minimal fine-tuning, ZixProtect provides a simple solution for small- to medium-sized businesses with limited resources yet offers abundant controls for customization and reporting options for business and compliance reviews.

ZixProtect is commercially available in three bundles. ZixProtect Essentials includes email threat protection, as well as business email continuity to enable access to messages during any service disruption. ZixProtect Plus adds automatic email encryption to deliver secure email to anyone, anywhere on any device. For a comprehensive email security solution, ZixProtect Premium includes email threat protection, business email continuity, email encryption and email data loss prevention.
