Zix Email Threat Protection

Recently a malicious email came through (direct email from a breached iCloud account pretending to be our president) - the email appeared by all points to be legitimate, but went to several former employees and several unrelated employees. Once caught, I was able to retract the message from all mailboxes and distribution lists with one click. This is much more effective than other systems with no retraction, and your only option is to send an email to all that received the previous email asking them to delete, or using PowerShell commands.

Zix gets a perfect 10 out of 10. End users can just work. With our previous solution, staff would have to determine if a message had sensitive information and then send it securely. Zix scans each message and ensures that the message does not fail into one of the pre-defined rulesets.

Zix is very good about response times and information. They even proactively e-mail us about known issues. I have never had an issue go unresolved, and the support team tends to answer quickly unless it's a strange, complicated request. The only time that happened was doing a search through logs, and that was entirely on me and my unfamiliarity with their flavor of Linux.

Even though employees are highly skeptical and apprehensive to use the product, I try to trust that the Zix scanning is doing its job and protecting what it needs to. I certainly worry about it on a regular basis though.
