DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 4, 2014-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, has announced the commercial availability of ZixGateway® Hosted for small- to medium-size businesses (SMBs).

“With the evolving acceptance of fully hosted solutions, we invested in our infrastructure to meet the growing demands of the SMB market. We leveraged our robust history of hosted services and nearly ten years of hosting experience with large enterprise customers to develop a cost-effective, hosted solution that enables us to take care of deployment and management while SMBs focus on other top business needs,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We understand that IT within SMBs often wear a lot of hats and manage many competing priorities. Delivering ZixGateway Hosted to SMBs enables those administrators to save time without impacting the quality of their email security.”
