ZixCorp Strengthens MSP Partner Capabilities with ZixGateway 4.507:35 EST Wednesday, February 06, 2013 DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), the leader in email encryption services, has released ZixGateway® 4.5 to give greater control to managed security service providers (MSPs) over their customers' data. Available in early February, ZixGateway 4.5 enables MSPs to identify and gather individual customer information with new domain filtering. By organizing data based on domains, MSPs can provide customers with valuable insight into their email exchange, their use of email encryption and how they are complying with corporate policies and government regulations. Access to ZixGateway's new MSP automated reporting tool allows MSPs to automatically deliver reports on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, providing customers with consistent visibility into their email encryption data and improving staff productivity for MSPs. The reporting tool also enables MSPs to customize messages and subject lines and add branding. “ZixGateway is a valuable asset to our portfolio, and the ZixCorp partner team is incredible. They always support us and our customers' email encryption needs,” said Joel Abramson, Director of Strategy and Business Development, Complete Data Products, Inc. “ZixGateway 4.5 is a great example of ZixCorp hearing and meeting our needs. The new filtering feature will positively impact our process efficiency, and the MSP reporting tool will enable us to further validate the importance of ZixCorp Email Encryption to our customers.” In addition to ZixGateway 4.5, ZixCorp has invested resources into partner program improvements that benefit MSPs and value added resellers (VARs) across all levels of partner engagement. An enriched partner portal and increased revenue percentages are intended to escalate partner profits, stimulate sales growth and build the existing partner base. “One of the many benefits of the ZixCorp Partner Program is that it continues to evolve, striving to build on already positive results,” said Hillel Sackstein, President and Chief Executive Officer, Virtual Graffiti. “Among the latest program enhancements, we are most excited about the increased revenue percentages. Not only do they positively impact our bottom line but they allow us to pass on a greater discount to customers, helping us build stronger existing relationships and continue to develop new ones.” Virtual Graffiti is the 2012 ZixCorp Partner of the Year. Virtual Graffiti has partnered with ZixCorp as a VAR since 2008 and is among ZixCorp's 174 VARs. ZixCorp has an additional 100 MSP partners. “ZixCorp is dedicated to the success of our partners. We are constantly evaluating program enhancements that boost opportunities for growth,” said Steve Irons, ZixCorp's Vice President of Channels. “Our goals are to fully support the changing needs of our existing partners and continue to attract qualified VARs and MSPs, understanding that their positive results are a key component of ours.” For additional information on the ZixCorp Partner Program, please visit www.zixcorp.com/partners or email partners@zixcorp.com.
