Singing River Health System Experiences Seamless Email Encryption and Data Loss Prevention with Zix
Ease of use and network of customers made Zix the right choice
PASCAGOULA, Miss. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 27, 2017--
Corporation (Zix), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email security,
announced that Singing
River Health System has strengthened compliance and security by
adding ZixEncryptSM. A community-owned, not-for-profit
health system in Mississippi, Singing River Health System provides email
encryption and data loss prevention to all employees, physicians and
staff to securely exchange protected health information (PHI), enable
efficient quality care and protect patient trust.
“Over the years, we’ve evaluated many email encryption solutions, and
Zix is by far the easiest to use. Its policy filters and automation make
employee communication seamless. It allows our staff to focus on patient
care and their work, instead of hurdles to send encrypted messages,”
said Kory Hudson, Director of Information Systems for Singing River
Health System. “The long list of customers in the Zix network also
allows us to actively secure all emails with those organizations and
without any effort from our team.”
includes policy-based email encryption, formerly known as ZixGateway®,
and email data loss prevention, formerly known as ZixQuarantine®.
With automatic scanning of email, Singing River Health System can
protect PHI and other sensitive information, such as personal financial
data or employee records, by encrypting emails that leave its network or
quarantining them for review.
“Encryption is critical to keeping patient data secure in email, but
people make mistakes and send messages that shouldn’t be exchanged in
the first place,” said Hudson. “Whether they include an identifier in
the subject line, attach the wrong file or make another error, Zix gives
us the tools to automatically monitor email, take the proper steps to
secure data and enhance training to prevent mistakes in the future.”
If an email triggers the quarantine policy, a notification message
alerts the employee, the user’s manager and/or IT administrators. In
reviewing the message, policy violations are identified, and the
violating content is highlighted for easy recognition. The email can be
deleted, or it can be released with justification and then encrypted
based on policies.
Encrypted emails are automatically decrypted and delivered transparently
if recipients use Zix’s policy-based email encryption. Of the 1.5
million Zix encrypted messages delivered every business day,
approximately 70 percent are delivered transparently, without the need
for passwords or extra steps. If recipients do not use a Zix solution,
encrypted messages are delivered in less than two steps through a
mobile-friendly, secure Web portal.
“Superior experience continues to be a critical advantage for Zix
customers. It ensures that sensitive data is better secured, users can
maintain their work pace, and IT and health administrators can meet
their obligations without interfering with patient care,” said Dave
Wagner, Chief Executive Officer at Zix. “Zix customers can continue
to trust that we will increase our superior experience, by adding more
healthcare customers to our network and evolving our technology.”
