Recipients who also use ZixGateway exchange encrypted email with Health Advocates without any extra steps or passwords. Email is automatically encrypted by ZixGateway at the sender network and automatically decrypted by ZixGateway at the recipient network, which enables secure communication as easy as regular email. Recipients who do not use ZixCorp Email Encryption Services can exchange secure email through ZixPort®, a secure Web portal that offers convenient access from desktops to mobile devices.
ZixPort also allows recipients without email encryption capabilities to initiate new email messages to Health Advocates through its Secure Compose feature. Instead of waiting for a Health Advocates employee to begin a secure email exchange, customers and partners can visit the company Web site or click on a link within an employee’s email signature to access the Secure Compose feature in ZixPort. Secure Compose fully extends convenient, secure two-way communication at no cost to customers and partners and without the need to install software.
“We don’t want secure communication with Health Advocates to be cumbersome or cause delays. We want it to be as convenient as possible, and providing ZixCorp’s Secure Compose to our clients and partners is just an example of the extra steps we take to make that a reality,” said Bargeron.
“ZixCorp recognizes the need to protect relationships as well as data. Our technology is designed to enable security without adding inconvenience,” said
