Acronis True Image

After being hit with a virus we greatly improved our backup strategy and this has been a great help! Good, reliable backup of servers and workstations, great support, and easy to set up on servers. Recommend it a lot because it very easy to use and saves a lot of work time. Version 2019 has a very good user interface and is very intuitive.

Zix

Zix is well suited in an environment where personal and sensitive information is used and shared electronically. One of the big reasons I choose Zix was that Zix works on its own without much requirements from the users. So if an attorney in our office decides to send an email with a Social security number or other personal data, Zix will encrypt the email for the attorney. This protects the firm, the client, and all parties involved. In a world where personal information is stolen daily, it is vital to have something that protects humans from themselves

Pros

  • Good software to used for images operating systems; it supports Windows, Mac, etc.
  • This software can start booting from CD, DVD, USB or from your network.
  • The software has 30 days of free license (trial) to be able to do all the tests that you require.
  • Very easy tool to use, GUI is also user-friendly.

  • One of the things that Zix does well is that it not only provides security to plain text it also makes sure attachments are in compliance as well
  • Being able to add many policies and include/exclude users on the back end provides great flexibility when managing many different types of users. Some of our users require more compliance than others so the ability to create an abundance of policies has been great
  • The integration with Exchange and Outlook for our users has been a positive experience. It took some time to create all the policies at the beginning but everything seems to be work great.

Cons

  • I would like the price to be a little less, although I understand that it is a reasonable price.
  • While backing up the system image, the computer becomes a bit slow.

  • We had to create a policy to force encrypt emails that may not meet criteria of policies in place. I believe having an add in or macro that will allow users to encrypt on demand would be a good addition. Perhaps this is already an option so I could be wrong but with our environment we had to setup up a keyword that forces encryption. Many users seem to forget this keyword, causing delays.
  • I have been told that recipients sometime struggle with accessing Zix and creating username/passwords to access our items. I believe more instruction and explanation to those receiving may eliminate these obstacles.
  • One of the biggest annoyances I found was that Zix has multiple portals for the admin. I believe there are 3-4 portals where I need to log in separately to do different things to manage our Zix Gateway, users, policies, etc. It would seem reasonable that all these platforms could be combined into one.

It has almost perfectly surpassed all of our requirements, and interactions their people are a delight. We expect to continue using Zix to provide streamlined encrypted document delivery and for sensitive communications. It is also helpful that many lending institutions are standardized on the platform, making the high level of interaction that we have be as seamless as possible.

there is no lag in transferring large encrypted documents. Real Estate transactions are horribly time sensitive and stressful. Zix performs flawlessly. It is always there, always responds without delay. It is probably dark magic.

The training is very thorough and well individualized for our application. It was done online with the trainer on telephone.I felt that they were truly interested in my success, and provided resources for follow up. The trainer was easily understood with thorough knowledge of the product and giving helpful advice for implementation.

Using the actual tools, with guided instructions made it very clear. The end user experience is completely intuitive. The management console is a bit creaky. Having clear instructions provided by the trainer, in addition to using the actual tools, made it work. I am informed that the management console is being streamlined in major overhaul.

It has no problem with our workload. We depend heavily on the ability to transfer large documents securely through the system and it has never let us down.

Return on Investment

  • We have seen positive return on our investment from purchasing this software.
  • It's a life saver for us, especially since we have a lot of important data for internal clients at the organization.

  • Reduced customer complaints due to transparent encryption (customers hate user names and passwords).
  • Trust in solution and the fact that it will try to encrypt any message via TLS if possible.
