Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, has announced commercial availability of ZixOneTM, a unique mobile email app that solves the key IT challenge created by the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend. ZixOne manages access to corporate email while never allowing that data to reside on the device where it is vulnerable to loss or theft.
BYOD describes the increasing trend of employees using their personal devices to conduct work and access corporate data. Unlike other BYOD solutions, ZixOne meets the users’ desire to keep corporate IT away from their devices while giving IT the ability to secure content and meet compliance needs. With seamless access to work email in a secure, simple-to-use environment, employees can stay productive while preserving device independence. A BYOD solution that is acceptable to employees solves one of today’s greatest IT management challenges.
“The use of employee-owned mobile devices in the workplace has created efficiency and enhanced productivity in the workplace, but it also leaves business exposed to significant risks of corporate data loss,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute. “These devices weren’t designed for security, and CIOs and IT departments are challenged to find a BYOD solution that protects corporate data without hindering the same efficiency and productivity resulting from this growing trend.”
ZixOne delivers email data protection through a mobile app that enables corporate email access without allowing the data to reside on an employee’s personal device where it has greater potential for compromise. This approach provides a secure mobile email environment that is familiar and acceptable to mobile users. If the device is lost or stolen, an administrator can simply disable access to corporate email from that device through ZixOne.The ZixOne approach provides significant advantages to companies that are implementing BYOD to support the increasing demand from employees to use personal mobile devices for work, including:
- Protection of sensitive corporate data, such as confidential company information, customer data and intellectual property
- Convenient employee access to corporate email, calendar and contacts
- Protection of employee privacy and trust without access to any personal data
- Compliance reporting to confirm sensitive data has not been breached when a device is lost or stolen
