ZixIt and Net2Link Form Alliance to Provide ZixMail Secure Email Service to Healthcare Industry

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2001--ZixIt Corp. (Nasdaq:ZIXI), a leading provider of products and services that bring privacy, security, and convenience to Internet communications, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Net2Link, LLC, a California-based provider of security and infrastructure solutions to vertical markets, to be a preferred secure email solutions provider for the company's healthcare customers. The combination of the ZixMailâ„¢ service with Net2Link's offerings will enable healthcare organizations to completely secure mission critical applications and hardware.

"ZixIt's secure email application complements Net2Link's current suite of security solutions. We believe that ZixMail is a strong addition to our offerings because of its ease of use, send-to-anyone capability, and compliance with proposed HIPAA standards," said Alex Diaz, managing partner for Net2Link. "We are constantly working to enhance our products and form quality partnerships that add value to our product mix, and incorporating ZixIt's secure email solution allows Net2Link to further differentiate itself from other solution providers that focus on HIPAA compliance."

ZixMail complies with the guidelines under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) being designed to ensure that individually identifiable healthcare information and records remain confidential and are accessible only to authorized individuals. In addition, the ease of use and affordability of ZixMail make it an excellent choice for healthcare organizations and insurance companies implementing HIPAA guidelines.

"Net2Link's significant customer relationships in the healthcare industry make it an outstanding partner to help us address a very important vertical market for ZixIt," said Doug Kramp, vice president of business development for ZixIt. "Healthcare organizations are being overwhelmed by the changes necessary to achieve HIPAA compliance, especially considering the legislation's deadline. Turn-key security solutions offered from a single source, like Net2Link, are very attractive to healthcare companies."
