The three-year agreement provides 3,500 AtlantiCare employees access to ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption solution. “ZixCorp offers us efficient tools to easily communicate with physicians, business partners and patients, and we quickly realized ZixCorp was a cornerstone in our IT security architecture,” said Brian Selfridge, Information Security Officer for AtlantiCare, CISSP. AtlantiCare has been a ZixCorp customer since 2003. According to Selfridge, AtlantiCare's employees benefit from ZixCorp's ease-of-use, and its business partners benefit from ZixCorp's unique transparency. “Our employees are very concerned with the privacy protection of our patients, and they absolutely love how easy it is to send secure email through ZixCorp Email Encryption,” said Selfridge. “We work with a number of hospital systems and business partners that have ZixGateway, and it's a huge advantage for us and them to access secure email without having to enter a password.
