Service 1st Federal Credit Union Signs Five-Year Contract with Zix Corporation
Easy management and seamless, secure communication with regulators are key factors in long-term renewal
DANVILLE, Pa. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2014-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that Service 1st Federal Credit Union has signed a five-year renewal contract for ZixTM Email Encryption. Service 1st first deployed ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service, in 2011 to automatically protect outbound email containing sensitive member information.
“We choose best of breed solutions to protect our member’s data and privacy, and ZixCorp meets that standard with ongoing leadership in email encryption,” said Jay Reed, Chief Information Officer for Service 1st. “The continued enhancements of ZixCorp’s solution are as easy to recognize as they are to implement. Regardless of the size of your IT department, you can expect to take advantage of upgrades with little to no impact. It just works.”
Zix Email Encryption is offered through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) architecture, making the solution easy to install and easy to maintain. ZixCorp’s SaaS architecture is supported by the ZixData CenterTM, a SysTrust/SOC3 certified, SOC2 accredited and PCI Level 1, DSS V2.0 certified facility with a track record of consistent 99.999% availability.
Zix Email Encryption is trusted and used by all federal financial regulators, including the National Credit Union Administration, and more than 20 state financial regulators, such as the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities. As a result, the exchange of secure email is completely transparent between Service 1st and its regulators without any additional set up.
“Seamless, secure communication is a significant advantage of Zix Email Encryption. It makes data protection as simple as possible for our employees and valuable recipients, including regulators, business partners and employee groups,” said Reed. “When we’re asked what solution we use, our reply of Zix quickly alleviates a lot of headaches and concerns.”
ZixCorp is the only vendor to offer automatic transparent email encryption for both senders and recipients without any additional set-up. Through ZixGateway, outbound email is automatically scanned and encrypted if sensitive content is identified in the message or attachments. Any recipients who use ZixGateway automatically receive secure email transparently, where messages are decrypted automatically without any extra steps or passwords. Any recipients who do not use ZixCorp Email Encryption Services can access secure email using ZixPort®, a mobile friendly web portal.
“We constantly enhance our email encryption and infrastructure to give our customers confidence that the solutions that are easy to use today will be even easier tomorrow,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “That commitment is how we’ve become the solution of choice for financial regulators and earned the loyalty of financial institutions like Service 1st Federal Credit Union and one out of every five U.S. banks.”
