Zix Corp. (ZIXI) Releases Improved Iteration Of ZixPort, Enhanced With Message Recall And Two-Factor Authentication

|Includes: Zix Corporation (ZIXI)

Zix, the leader in email encryption services, announced the release of a new and improved version of ZixPort®, a secure Web portal. This upgraded version includes message recall and two-factor authorization, providing increased control and flexibility of encrypted email messages to compliance and security officers.

ZixPort is a delivery method that enables bidirectional email encryption for recipients who do not have ZixCorp® Email Encryption Services. ZixPort is available to any recipient with an Internet browser, and can be easily accessed on mobile devices as well. The message recall feature gives compliance, security officers, and administrators the ability to remove messages from ZixPort if an email is sent to the wrong recipient or the wrong file is mistakenly attached.

The second new feature in this release of ZixPort is two-factor authentication in a streamlined, user-friendly process that is perfectly suited for financial institutions and government organizations that require additional security without inconveniencing recipients. This new authentication method will be the third authentication method offered with ZixPort, along with integration with customer's existing Single Sing-on technology and solutions from third-party two-factor authentication providers.

"ZixCorp has set the bar in industry-leading email encryption services. We are constantly investing in our products to ensure that we exceed customer demands, as well as meet our commitment to deliver innovative, easy-to-use secure email," said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "ZixPort is an essential delivery method in our portfolio of services, and the new features of ZixPort enhance control and flexibility for our customers and continue to extend our lead in the market."

The new message recall feature is scheduled to be rolled out in June 2012. Two-factor authentication is expected to be commercially available in August 2012.
