DALLAS -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, announces the launch of ZixDLP to address business’s greatest source of data loss – email. ZixDLP is an email-specific data loss prevention solution. By focusing strictly on email, ZixCorp provides a straightforward DLP approach that decreases the cost and reduces deployment time from months to hours. ZixDLP is also designed to have minimal impact on customer resources and workflow.
“ZixCorp is recognized for our dedication to easy to use, innovative email encryption. As we explored opportunities to take advantage of our expertise and grow our business, we saw DLP as a natural extension,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to introduce an email-specific DLP solution that provides our customers with a convenient solution to a complex problem and minimizes the risk of the greatest data loss problem in their company.”
Leveraging the company’s leadership and expertise in email encryption, ZixDLP was developed to use ZixCorp’s proven policy and content scanning capabilities with new quarantine functionality. The quarantine system and its intuitive interface allow administrators to:
In addition to an easy to use administrator interface, ZixDLP provides a convenient employee experience. When an employee uses the company email system to send an email to a recipient outside the company, the message and attachments are scanned by ZixDLP. If a policy is triggered, the email is sent to a quarantine system, and the employee receives a notification message. Embedded in the notification is a link to where the user can easily review the quarantined email message. Administrators can enable employees the capability to review, release the email with justification noted or delete the email and draft a new version.
Emphasizing education and training, each employee can see what part of the email was identified as sensitive and what policy was triggered to quarantine the message. In taking these extra steps, employees become more aware of corporate policies and more alert to the sensitivity of valuable information.
“By focusing on email, we can provide a highly effective yet simple approach for both employees interacting with the solution and the administrators managing the system,” said Spurr. “We are confident that ZixDLP is unique in its ease of use, empowering customers to implement DLP without disruption or complexity.”
Commercial release of ZixDLP is planned for March 29, 2013. ZixDLP will be available as an add-on for existing ZixCorp customers or as a bundle with ZixCorp Email Encryption for new customers. ZixDLP will also be available as a standalone solution that can easily integrate with most email systems and email encryption solutions.
