DALLAS, Feb 16, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the only Email Encryption Service that's designed with your most important relationships in mind, today announced that its ZixDirectory, the foundation of ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service, marked an industry first, reaching 20 million members. The ZixDirectory members represent everyone who sends or receives encrypted email using ZixCorp's Email Encryption Service.

ZixCorp has always believed the key to successful secure email exchange lies in emphasizing the recipient experience. Obviously, organizations need solutions that are simple to administer and simple to deploy, but of greater importance is the need for a transparent end-user experience.

ZixCorp understands that tolerance for any interruption is very low in today's enterprise environment while productivity is king; this is particularly true in today's economy. CIO's do not want to burden users and employees with additional security hurdles.

Most email encryption solutions are focused on the sender, they typically introduce an added burden on receivers, often requiring additional user authentication with creation of a new user id and password. ZixCorp designed its solution to alleviate the receiver's burden, by delivering encrypted email automatically and transparently. ZixCorp offers transparent delivery as a result of the ZixDirectory(TM), the largest email encryption directory in the world. The ZixDirectory is a shared community of secure email users that send and receive secure, confidential, encrypted email that appears and functions like conventional email. Once a ZixCorp customer, a user enjoys the benefit of trusted email exchange with other ZixDirectory members with no additional burden.

"ZixDirectory is the core of our Email Encryption Service and the core of our differentiation," said Rick Spurr, Chief Executive Officer of ZixCorp. "Our system architecture was specifically built to connect communities of interest. Less sophisticated systems create headaches for users. We're the only company in the industry that's built its technology to operate transparently, completely embedded, for both senders and receivers; this is a key differentiator for us in the market."
