Leading Industries through the Maze of Increased Regulation

Email remains the dominant communication method in business. On a daily basis, your employees are exchanging almost countless emails, and many of them contain sensitive customer information, intellectual property or corporate data. Whether your employees are sending emails from desktops or accessing them from mobile devices, Zix can provide you with innovative, easy-to-use email data protection.

No matter the industry, each company has a need to secure email, safeguard relationships with customers or patients and protect its reputation. However, various industries face different regulatory burdens. For those without that pressure, geography may play a role. Learn more about your obligations and how Zix assists our customers with industry-leading email data protection.

  • Healthcare - The burden of complying with HIPAA, the HITECH Act and other federal and state regulations is stressful, but the cost of one breach of electronic protected health information (ePHI) is too high to ignore.
  • Finance - With the critical role of email in day-to-day operations and the increasing pressure of federal and state regulations, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), to protect consumer privacy, email encryption is the solution for securing the exchange of sensitive information for financial institutions.
  • Government - To manage the stress of government oversight and maintain public trust, government organizations look to email encryption to assist in the protection of sensitive information.

With increasing federal and state regulations governing the security of personal information, many companies outside of these industries are also compelled to secure customer data and protect their businesses from reputation damage, government fines and other costs associated with a data breach.
