"We chose ZixMail after a pilot that included very important international
transactions with a number of users. We were impressed with how much it
increased productivity -- it took less time, effort, and money to transmit
secure documents than using an overnight, overseas delivery service. We are
strong proponents of the benefits that ZixMail will bring to the firm and our
diverse, multi-national client base," said Bryan Cave's technology partner, John
Alber. "We consider it a major plus that ZixMail.net, which is used to send
secure email to non-ZixMail users, also provides strong visual branding for
Bryan Cave, so that these electronic messages are in keeping with our firm's new
visual identity program."
ZixMail provides Internet communication security beyond existing firewalls,
serving as a natural extension to a company's corporate security policy. With
the certified receipt feature, which enhances ZixMail's use as an everyday
business tool, ZixMail can replace overnight delivery, courier services, and
certified mail. ZixMail requires no additional hardware, no expensive consulting
fees, and minimal IT support.
Steve Gersten, senior vice president of sales and marketing for ZixIt, said,
"The importance of email security is underscored when Bryan Cave, one of the
world's largest and most prestigious law firms, chooses to implement ZixMail.
The legal industry is recognizing that an additional layer of security is needed
beyond the traditional scope of firewalls, virus scanning, and intrusion
detection. ZixMail is uniquely suited to this market because -- in addition to
its superior encryption and digital signature service -- ZixMail has the
capability to send secure messages to anyone, including non-ZixMail subscribers.
ZixMail effectively extends the traditional confidentiality of the
attorney-client relationship to electronic communications."
Bryan Cave joins a number of other well-known law firms that have recently
chosen ZixMail, including: Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, LLP; Fulbright &
Jaworski, LLP; Wiley, Rein & Fielding, LLP; Steptoe & Johnson, LLP; and Cooper,
Rose & English, LLP.
