Google and Zix Corporation Strengthen Secure Email Protection with General Availability of Google Apps Message Encryption

Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces the launch of Google Apps Message Encryption (GAME). GAME is specifically designed by ZixCorp at the request of Google for the Google Apps infrastructure and provides secure email to Google Apps users when communicating outside Google’s secure cloud to all other email users.

Currently Google supports secure email within its infrastructure and between its customers. However, emails sent to users on other email systems such as Yahoo and Microsoft Exchange are vulnerable as they traverse the public Internet. GAME allows encryption of email to every possible recipient, giving Google Apps customers the confidence that they are protecting the sensitive information of their customers and partners.

GAME is commercially available for Google Apps customers through the Google sales team and incorporates ZixTM Email Encryption capabilities to transmit email securely. ZixCorp is recognized as the industry leader in email encryption by offering innovative, easy to use solutions. To learn more about GAME, read the Message Encryption Quick Start Guide.

“In the midst of growing awareness regarding data threats, it’s more important than ever that companies have a reliable solution for the secure exchange of valuable customer and corporate data,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This announcement enhances the Google Apps offering to provide an end-to-end secure solution for email and is a reflection of our companies’ commitment to the broad-based proliferation of email data protection.”
