Zix Corporation Enhances ZixPort with Message Recall and Two-Factor Authentication07:35 EDT Wednesday, May 16, 2012 DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, announces a new release of ZixPort®, which will include message recall and two-factor authentication. The additional features offer compliance and security officers increased control and flexibility of encrypted email messages. ZixPort, a secure Web portal, is a delivery method that enables bidirectional email encryption for recipients who do not have ZixCorp® Email Encryption Services. ZixPort is available to any recipient who has access to an internet browser and is easily accessible on mobile devices. Message recall offers more control to compliance, security officers and administrators who can remove messages from ZixPort in the event an email is mistakenly sent to the wrong recipient or the wrong file is mistakenly attached. ZixPort will also include two-factor authentication in a streamlined, user-friendly process that is ideal for financial institutions and government organizations who demand added security without inconveniencing recipients. The new two-factor authentication method for ZixPort will be the third authentication method offered to all customers who require increased security. ZixPort currently supports integration with customers' existing Single Sign-On technology, as well as solutions from third-party two-factor authentication providers. “ZixCorp has set the bar in industry-leading email encryption services. We are constantly investing in our products to ensure that we exceed customer demands, as well as meet our commitment to deliver innovative, easy-to-use secure email,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “ZixPort is an essential delivery method in our portfolio of services, and the new features of ZixPort enhance control and flexibility for our customers and continue to extend our lead in the market.” The new message recall feature is scheduled to be rolled out in June 2012. Two-factor authentication is expected to be commercially available in August 2012.
