ZixCorp’s Ease Of Use And Sustained Leadership In Healthcare Win Renewal With Health Advocates

Stocks in this article: ZIXI

Zix Corporation (ZixCorp) (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that Health Advocates has signed a three-year renewal for ZixCorp® Email Encryption. Health Advocates initially selected ZixCorp in 2010 for its trusted reputation in healthcare and its commitment to ease of use. The continued strength of ZixCorp’s leadership in healthcare and its proven, easy to use technology were deciding factors in Health Advocates’ renewal with ZixCorp.

All employees for Health Advocates use ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service, to secure protected health information (PHI) and meet the regulatory requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. In addition, ZixGateway assists Health Advocates in meeting recent guidance from the California Attorney General to use encryption in the transmission of personal information.

“In light of the final HIPAA omnibus rule, as well as the guidance recently released by the California Attorney General, it’s more important than ever to take the necessary steps that protect patient and personal privacy,” said Michael Bargeron, Chief Information Officer for Health Advocates. “Email is an everyday communication tool that shares an abundance of PHI and personal data. We trust that ZixCorp delivers leading email encryption and allows us to do business securely and easily.”

Recipients who also use ZixGateway exchange encrypted email with Health Advocates without any extra steps or passwords. Email is automatically encrypted by ZixGateway at the sender network and automatically decrypted by ZixGateway at the recipient network, which enables secure communication as easy as regular email. Recipients who do not use ZixCorp Email Encryption Services can exchange secure email through ZixPort®, a secure Web portal that offers convenient access from desktops to mobile devices.

ZixPort also allows recipients without email encryption capabilities to initiate new email messages to Health Advocates through its Secure Compose feature. Instead of waiting for a Health Advocates employee to begin a secure email exchange, customers and partners can visit the company Web site or click on a link within an employee’s email signature to access the Secure Compose feature in ZixPort. Secure Compose fully extends convenient, secure two-way communication at no cost to customers and partners and without the need to install software.

“We don’t want secure communication with Health Advocates to be cumbersome or cause delays. We want it to be as convenient as possible, and providing ZixCorp’s Secure Compose to our clients and partners is just an example of the extra steps we take to make that a reality,” said Bargeron.
