Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces a new channel partnership with Maureen Data Systems (MDS), an IT services company headquartered in New York. As a premier value added reseller (VAR), MDS will offer the full suite of ZixCorp ® Email Encryption Services, including ZixGateway® and ZixPort® , to all customers and prospects. MDS has provided technology solutions for more than 30 years to mid-market enterprise businesses in a variety of industries, including financial services, government, healthcare and legal. A Microsoft Gold Partner and recipient of the 2012 Microsoft East Region SMB Partner of the Year award, MDS is focused on delivering ZixCorp Email Encryption Services with its Office 365 offering. ZixCorp enables easy integration with the Microsoft hosted email service by leveraging Microsoft’s Outbound Smarthost Connector. “We’ve developed a large base of Office 365 customers. Integration of ZixCorp’s industry-leading email encryption into our portfolio of products will allow MDS to continue meeting the needs of our Office 365 customers and position us for further success,” said Maureen Lande, President of MDS. The launch of ZixOneTM provides additional growth opportunities for MDS in the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) market. ZixOne is a BYOD app that enables corporate email access without allowing the data to reside on an employee’s personal device. This unique approach eliminates the risk of corporate data loss in the event of a lost or stolen personal device without jeopardizing employee control or privacy. Commercial availability for ZixOne is scheduled for Sept. 3, 2013, and will be available to VARs in the ZixCorp Partner Program. “Our customers trust us to stay ahead of the trends and align with best of breed technologies that can assist them with their IT needs,” said Stewart Lande, Executive Vice President of Business Development for MDS. “ZixCorp’s leadership in email data protection makes its introduction of an email BYOD solution very exciting.”
“These are historic times for ZixCorp and our partners as we experience strong demand for email encryption and expand our offerings into the BYOD market,” said Rick Spurr, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ZixCorp. “With a first-class partner program, we can work with companies such as MDS that have long-standing, trusted reputations in their region to bring our industry-leading technology to new customers. We look forward to extending our reach in New York and building a mutually beneficial partnership with MDS.”About Maureen Data Systems Located in the heart of New York City, Maureen Data Systems (MDS) has been taking good care of its clients' IT needs for many years.
