Zix Strengthens Partner Program with the Addition of Top Google Partners

Leadership in Email Security and Superior Channel Support Create Opportunities for Partner and Revenue Growth

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 17, 2018-- Zix Corporation (Zix), (Nasdaq:ZIXI), a leader in email security, has expanded its partner program by adding 12 Google Partners. The new partners will resell the full suite of Zix solutions, including ZixArchive, ZixEncrypt and ZixProtect. Designed for the cloud, Zix solutions integrate seamlessly to enhance the security of G Suite.

“Zix offers a powerful suite of solutions that are a perfect fit for our customers’ needs. Its reputation in healthcare and finance combined with a committed team that’s easy to do business with made Zix a good fit for us,” said Aric Bandy, President of Agosto. “We look forward to growing the relationship and providing our customers with valuable solutions that will overcome some of their greatest challenges.”

Zix recruited the Google resellers after working with those organizations on sales of Google Apps Message Encryption (GAME), a Zix exclusive email encryption solution provided through Google. Zix’s unique position with Google allowed the Company to expand its partner program with successful Google partners and meet the cloud email security and archiving needs of G Suite users.

“In our early experiences with Zix, we found their partner team to be knowledgeable and responsive, setting us up to deliver a great solution and experience for our customers,” said Didi Dellano, Chief Executive Officer of Tempus Nova. “With an expanded solution suite and a strong presence in financial services and healthcare, Zix was a great fit for our portfolio, our customers and our team.”

“In working with Google, we established good relationships with key resellers and provided the leading solution in email encryption to their valuable customers. Now as we transition our partnership with Google from an OEM relationship to a focus on the Google Marketplace, we’ve been able to build on past positive experiences and grow those relationships into our own partner program,” said Dave Wagner, Zix’s Chief Executive Officer. “With the opportunity to provide our full suite of email threat protection, email encryption and archiving, we’re excited about adding value to our resellers’ portfolios and helping ease the email security and compliance burden of their G Suite customers.”

Industry-leading technology and a proven reputation for delivering easy-to-use solutions to address complex challenges were key benefits that led Google partners, including those that have attained premier status, to join the Zix Partner Program. Zix’s breadth of cloud experience during the last 15 years and its excellence in meeting the highest industry standards in development, operation, and administration were also impactful for the Google partners.

“Zix helps our customers protect sensitive data through their breadth of encryption, data loss prevention and threat protection solutions. Customers in regulated industries, like healthcare, realize compliance with the assistance of Zix,” said Mitch Greenwald, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cloudbakers. “Cloudbakers' relationship started with GAME (Google Message Encryption) and has evolved to a broader offering, providing unique solutions in the growing SaaS industry. We look forward to continuing to serve clients with the support of the Zix team.”

A dedicated partner team with sales and marketing resources was also a critical factor. Zix partners can have confidence that the partner team will assist with customer needs and help build a mutually beneficial relationship.
