AppRiver, a Zix (NASDAQ: ZIXI) company and leading provider of
cloud-based cybersecurity, productivity, and compliance services, today
announced that ZixEncrypt, will be available for AppRiver partners
beginning on April 25, 2019. The next-generation email encryption
platform is a product of Zix, a leading provider of email security
solutions and now parent company of AppRiver.

The integration of ZixEncrypt comes just two months after AppRiver’s
acquisition by Zix. The launch reinforces Zix CEO Dave Wagner’s vision
of broadening the two companies’ best-in-class security offerings to
their customers. It also signals the companies’ strategic and product
integration is well under way.

“AppRiver’s 4,500-strong reseller network – and the tens of thousands of
businesses they work with — will now have access to the same encryption
technology that protects many of the nation’s largest financial and
healthcare institutions,” Wagner said. “That we were able to integrate
Zix email encryption into the AppRiver platform in just 64 days speaks
to how well-aligned the two companies are and highlights why the
acquisition was so powerful.”

Delivering on the business community’s growing demand for security and
efficiency while managing an ever-increasing volume of confidential
data, the new email encryption capabilities provide intelligent
full-content scanning of a sender’s email subject, message body and
attachments.

Specialized DLP filters are used to automatically identify financial,
healthcare or other sensitive information in all outbound emails. Based
on policy preferences, messages determined to be sensitive can be
automatically encrypted, logged, routed, blocked or branded, requiring
no additional action by the email sender.

With the added benefits of data loss prevention and customized, advanced
content filtering, AppRiver gives businesses under compliance
regulations the ability to tailor their protection of sensitive and
confidential data with ease during email transmissions.

“Our channel partners let us know very clearly that they wanted Zix
solutions even before the acquisition,” said Chris Essex, AppRiver’s
senior vice president of global sales. “We’re very proud that our
combined team was able to bring encryption into our suite so quickly –
and we look forward to adding others in the months ahead.”

“It’s exciting to see Zix’s best-of-breed encryption available alongside
AppRiver’s suite of security products, especially so soon after the two
companies joined forces,” said Brandon Smith, senior director of product
management for AppRiver partner Onepath, a Kennesaw, Georgia-based
provider of managed IT solutions. “That’s good news for MSPs who want
the convenience of selling a full range of services through AppRiver’s
platform, but it’s also a very encouraging sign that the acquisition
will mean more integration and innovation from the combined company
moving forward.”
