Zix Email Encryption (ZixEncrypt)

Zix integrates well with Google Workspace to work seamlessly and behind the scenes. Whole message encryption (including attachments) can be programmed with a keyword or phrase in the subject line. Our staff finds that relatively easy to do. Plus, if our staff forget to add the keyword to encrypt the message, all messages are scanned for sensitive information and encrypted anyway. Great safeguard!

Cons

Avast Email Security

  • I have not experienced any issues that I can list here.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Encryption (ZixEncrypt)

  • There are so many functions available, I'm not sure if the deficiencies we see are actually with Zix or our lack of knowledge. So this in itself is a weakness.
  • Zix has had a lot of issues recently with outages. They've been remedied quickly, but there have been quite a few.

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.

From an admin side I believe that the portals need to be combined into one main web based portal. This would make it easier to access for admins when setting up policies and trying to view reports. That is the one area I would say Zix is not so easy to use. However, for the end user I believe the product is great as they really have little involvement.

The availability of Zix has been very good. We have never had an outage due to an issue with the Zix portal or service. They plan their upgrades for off hours and do a good job of communicating any planned upgrades or outages well in advance. Zix has always been available when we need it.

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.

I give it the high rating due to the fact support will be rarely needed. Zix documentation is pretty solid, clear, and helpful. When contacted, Zix did a good job in resolving the issues and we were able to move forward without any issues on the zix side. The app is easy to use, and again requires little support.

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.

The online training we received from Zix was very good. They did a good job of walking us through the entire setup process and also provided good documentation as a reference. It was valuable because we worked directly with our configuration and portal during the training. We weren't just working with a hypothetical example.

Zix was already implemented when I started. I migrated our Zix to the cloud version years later. Zix support did a great job assisting me in moving to the cloud. They worked with me the entire way, and it was a painless process. Moving to the cloud was a great recommendation. They were really thinking of our best interests.

Zix Email Encryption (ZixEncrypt)

We wanted something that was common in our industry so our clients and partners would understand it. We also wanted an email encryption system that was policy-based so our users didn't have to do anything to ensure private information was well-protected. Zix fits the bill in both instances.

Return on Investment

  • By keeping spamming and other online threats away, we do not have to worry about corrupt emails or hacking instances.
  • With Avast Email Security, we do not have to worry about data loss
  • Avast Email Security makes it easy to encrypt and decrypt emails thereby ensuring data privacy
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Encryption (ZixEncrypt)

  • We've saved potentially millions of dollars in compliance fines by using Zix. The amount of HIPAA information that gets sent by email is staggering and prior to deploying Zix we were unprotected. The level of assurance and auditing trail is awesome and provides incredible value.
  • While many email users were at first inconvenienced they've come to appreciate the protection they received from the service because people often make mistakes when sending emails about the sensitivity of the information they are sharing they feel they have a safety net with Zix that is keeping them out of harm's way.
