Customer Spotlight - ZixCorp Gives Foster Swift Collins & Smith True Email Security

Wed, 12/30/2015 - 08:27 by ZixCorp
When it comes to the legal industry, there are no bounds to the amount of sensitive information an attorney might have access to. From personal client information to sensitive corporate documents, law firms are regularly in possession of and transmit a wealth of information that could be harmful if it ended up in the wrong hands. This unfortunate truth is part of the reason why The American Bar Association (ABA) states in Model Rule 1.6 that when transmitting information related to the representation of a client, “the lawyer must take reasonable precautions to prevent the information from...

Customer Spotlight - Union Bank "Opens Up Shop" with ZixOne

Wed, 07/01/2015 - 10:41 by ZixCorp
Let’s be honest, IT departments rarely have an opportunity to make everyone happy — especially when it comes to the selection of security solutions. Selecting a BYOD product is no different than any other security solution — many times privacy is sacrificed in the name of security. While this ensures that data is secure, it can also lead to unnecessary tension within the workplace. Because of this, Union Bank remained a “closed shop” to mobile devices for many years. Unable to find a solution that balanced employee needs with security, the bank made the conscious...

At the current rate, it seems an email data breach is making headlines almost once a week. Whether it’s a nationally recognized retail store or a regional network of hospitals, sensitive information is being exposed as a result of these data breaches.

Just like a quarterback needs protection from his offensive line, personal health information (PHI) needs elite protection to be kept safe from unwanted eyes.

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 10:33 by ZixCorp
Healthcare organizations aren’t just responsible for protecting their patients’ health, they are also accountable for protecting their personal health information. Given the nature of the healthcare industry, hospitals and health systems are repositories for sensitive information ranging from medical histories and prescriptions to personal information such as billing information, Social Security Numbers and insurance claim information. Gathered in one place, this can be a treasure trove for someone with ill intentions. Every day millions of emails containing patient health information are...

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 11:10 by ZixCorp
With the amount of sensitive data that passes through healthcare organizations — along with stringent HIPAA regulations — it can seem like a daunting undertaking to embrace BYOD. Innovative Care Management (ICM) was in this position recently — deciding if it would continue to only allow senior management access to corporate email through company-owned devices or open up access to work email on personally owned devices too. Hesitant at first, the team at ICM quickly realized that if it chose the right solution, BYOD was a great option. After a trial of ZixOne, team members were impressed at...
