Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, announces that Empire National Bank (OTCQB: EMPK.OB) expanded its use of ZixCorp Email Encryption Services to replace a competitor's solution.
Empire National Bank began using ZixMail, ZixCorp's desktop email encryption service, in 2008 in combination with a legacy email encryption solution. After experiencing ZixCorp's superior ease-of-use, Empire National Bank discontinued using the outdated legacy solution and implemented ZixGateway, a policy-based email encryption service, for all secure email communication.
"The protection and privacy of our customers' personal information is our primary concern with electronic communications," said John Pinna, Chief Information Officer for Empire National Bank. "There are several choices for email encryption, but at the end of the day, only ZixCorp's solution has the reputation, ease-of-use and support that's right for our customers and our company."
ZixMobilityTM and ZixCorp's reputation with financial regulators also contributed to Empire National Bank choosing ZixCorp Email Encryption Services. ZixMobility simplifies access to encrypted email on smartphones and tablet computers by delivering layouts optimized for the device and eliminating cumbersome steps.
"You can't separate customers and strategic partners from their email. Smartphones and tablets keep them in touch, and if email encryption can't easily support mobile devices, it's a failure," said Pinna.
ZixCorp provides email encryption to all federal financial regulators, including all the members of the FFIEC, and to more than 20 state banking regulators. By using ZixCorp solutions, Empire National Bank can exchange encrypted email with its key financial regulators securely and transparently without any extra steps or passwords. In addition, Empire National Bank experiences transparent email encryption with all business partners that also use ZixGateway.
"ZixCorp's more than 1,600 financial industry customers gain a unique sense of confidence in choosing the same email encryption solution as their key industry regulators. They also benefit from our ease-of-use and our continuing investment in innovations like ZixMobility," said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We're happy that we could build on our initial relationship with Empire National Bank, and we appreciate its decision to standardize and make ZixCorp its only secure email solution."
