Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics Selects ZixCorp Email Encryption Services to Replace Outdated Encryption Product07:35 EST Tuesday, November 15, 2011 TYLER, Texas & DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, was selected by Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics to replace its previous email security solution in a new, four-year contract. Trinity Mother Frances switched to ZixCorp® Email Encryption Services based on partner recommendations and the convenience of ZixCorp's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) architecture. “The protection of private health and financial information is critical to maintaining trusted relationships with our patients. After experiencing difficulties with our previous email encryption vendor, we sought a provider that we could count on to secure our email and, more importantly, secure our patients' privacy,” said Jerry King, Manager Client Technologies, Trinity Mother Frances. “ZixCorp Email Encryption Services are the right solution. Not only does ZixCorp offer solid, robust services, but we also gained confidence based on ZixCorp's real-world success with our close business partners.” Trinity Mother Frances sends secure email through ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service that automatically scans and encrypts email and attachments that contain sensitive information, such as protected health information (PHI). ZixGateway also enables Trinity Mother Frances to communicate encrypted email transparently, without any extra steps or passwords, to more than 260 business partners. ZixCorp delivers ZixGateway and other email encryption services through SaaS architecture. SaaS offers benefits such as reduced costs for technology investments and minimal time and cost associated with maintenance. “Our first solution was managed on-site, and it required a lot of time and energy to run,” said King. “With ZixCorp, there's little management and maintenance. Its services are easy to run, and the company is easy to work with.” “ZixCorp designs its email encryption services so they are easy to operate and easy to use. A testament to our success is loyal customers who recommend our solutions to their business partners,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate Trinity Mother Frances' business and for trusting our solutions to provide security for their patients' information.” About Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics includes The Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital, Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler, Mother Frances Hospital-Jacksonville, Mother Frances Hospital-Winnsboro, Trinity Mother Frances Rehabilitation Hospital, affiliated with HealthSouth, Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital, a long-term acute care facility, and Trinity Clinic.
