Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that Central Technology Services (CTS) has signed a four-year contract to protect sensitive information in email using Zix® Email Encryption. CTS made the switch from Cisco’s IronPort Encryption Appliance (IEA) to ZixCorp for its industry-leading transparency, encryption technology and support.
An affiliate of Central Bancompany, CTS provides banking operations to Central Bancompany’s financial service institutions, enabling 2,200 employees to communicate sensitive information securely. Whether the information is being sent to a Central Bancompany partner who also uses Zix Email Encryption or a customer who has no email encryption capabilities, ZixCorp offers flexible decryption and secure reply options.
“When we decided to update our email encryption solution, we found the best solution is offered by a company that focuses on email security,” said Mike Nanneman, Manager, Network Services at CTS. “With ZixCorp, we get a tested and trusted solution that is easy for our employees, customers and partners to use. Beyond its proven products and services, ZixCorp gives us first-class customer support and greatly simplified our transition from IEA.”
Zix Email Encryption is offered through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) architecture, making it easy to install and maintain. ZixCorp’s SaaS architecture is supported by the ZixData CenterTM, a SysTryst/SOC3 certified, SOC2 accredited and PCI Level 1, DSS V2.0 certified facility with a track record of consistent 99.999 percent availability.
“Zix Email Encryption has a strong reputation in the financial industry, and we feel confident telling business partners and clients their data is being protected by Zix,” said Nanneman.
ZixCorp is the only email encryption vendor to offer automatic transparency for both senders and recipients without any additional setup. Through ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service, outbound email communication is automatically scanned and encrypted if any sensitive content is identified in the subject line, message or attachments. Recipients who also use ZixGateway receive secure messages that are automatically decrypted without any extra steps or passwords. For any recipients that do not use Zix Email Encryption, secure emails can be accessed using ZixPort®, a mobile friendly, secure Web portal.
“Our focus as a company is email data protection,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s chairman and chief executive officer. “ZixCorp is committed to offering the most innovative and convenient email encryption solutions, and our continuous investment in enhancements gives our customers confidence that we’ll keep them current with changing technology.”

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
