Zix Corporation Unveils the Next Generation in Mobile Delivery for Email Encryption Services07:35 EST Tuesday, February 15, 2011 SAN FRANCISCO & DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, has introduced ZixMobilityTM, the new standard in simple mobile access for secure email, at the 2011 RSA Conference in San Francisco, Calif. U.S. mobile users spend more time using e-mail on their phones than any other internet based mobile activity, according to a December 2010 report published by the Nielsen Company. The ease-of-use for encrypted email on mobile devices has not matched this trend, requiring users to overcome inconvenient steps, distorted screen layouts and inefficient implementations to access secure email. ZixCorp has addressed these challenges to offer enhanced mobile support for email encryption through ZixMobility. “Mobile email encryption users require solutions that are very simple to use and that are designed specifically for today's devices without neglecting the need for providing a high level of security,” said Eric Ouellet, Vice President, Secure Business Enablement for Gartner, Inc. “Solutions must offer a seamless user experience and be finely integrated with existing environments to meet the demands of users in today's market place.” ZixMobility functions across all major smartphone platforms, including AndroidTM, BlackBerry® and iPhone®. ZixMobility exceeds conventional email encryption standards for mobile support by offering: Seamless email encryption as users navigate from desktop to mobile device Optimized layouts designed for the user's environment Fully functional navigation maximized for the user's screen Maximum user convenience with no cumbersome steps “Business is no longer conducted behind a desk from 9 to 5; it's conducted anytime and anywhere with a mobile device. ZixCorp's introduction of ZixMobility drives encrypted email beyond all traditional boundaries to enable secure email anytime, anywhere and on any mobile device,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “At ZixCorp, we understand email encryption on mobile devices was cumbersome and that it needed to be simplified for all users. ZixMobility is the solution, enabling secure email as easily from a mobile device as a desktop.” ZixMobility will be commercially available in July 2011.
