We also use the ZixOne MDM product to sandbox corporate email on mobile devices.,Widespread usage of ZixGateway in the Healthcare arena makes end to end encryption very seamless for our users. The product is easy to use. Our users can encrypt either through the use of an Outlook add-on that puts a "Send Securely" button in Outllook for Windows. Though there is no client for those users on a Mac, or those who use OWA, they can still easily encrypt by inserting a keyword in the subject line. As a safety net, the rules that are processed at the Gateway allow for automatic encryption when end users forget. The ZixOne product has grown in functionality over the years and now includes the ability to encrypt from the mobile device. It's become a very stable, reliable program.,The backend management of the ZixGateway could be simplified. It took a while to get the hang of how the rules interacted with one another. That having been said, once we had it tweaked out, it's been relatively hands off. Since we rely on this for HIPAA compliance, an improvement in this area would be a periodic "health" check of our appliance to ensure we've not made a rules change that has invalidated the intended use of the product. We would have liked to seen the ZixOne MDM product allow integration of calendar items with the device's native calendar application. That was the biggest complaint of our users, that their business calendar, which contained no ePHI, was now segregated from there personal calendar forcing them manage two separate calendars.,9,Zix products have increased comfort level that our email communications are HIPAA compliant 100%. Before Zix, we trained our users about the importance of securing their data. We had a manual and time consuming process for securing email which often resulted in end users being tempted to bypass the process. Zix has reduced the burden of securing email on our IT support staff as end users are now able to do this on their own with the click of a single button.,With its safety net of rules-based enforcement, Zix absolutely fills the bill when you're looking at compliance with federal requirements. On more than one occasion, I've gotten an urgent call from an upset end user who'd forgotten to send a document containing ePHI securely. In every case, I was able to review the Zix logs and determine that the ZixGateway rules had determined the ePHI was present and appropriately encrypted the email. This is priceless. In a recent discussion with our Executive Director, I was asked, "Is it worth the money?" My response was, "I would not want to operate this business without it.",9,Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy,1600,2,Protecting our patient's confidential data when transmitted via email. Protecting the company's confidential information.,We're using Zix in the standard, out of the box method.,At this time, we don't have any plans to expand the use of Zix.,9,Duo Security,No,Ideally, when evaluating any product of this nature, it is helpful to do a realistic proof of concept. During the POC, ensure that your participating users have a variety of roles to ensure the greatest amount of input on the product.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,While it was not significant, our biggest challenge was training our users.,9,Yes,10,We needed assistance setting of DKIM signing for outbound email on multiple domains. Support was able to clearly outline the steps we needed to take so that the project was successful.,System administration Reporting,None are particularly difficult.Zix is a best practices solution that anyone with secure data should be usingWe currently use Zix to ensure that sensitive data is encrypted when sent via email. Our entire organization uses it, as all e-mail gets relayed through the system to check for PII or other data. Given that we do a lot of work with financial and medical information, it is extremely important for us to have a solution that guarantees privacy protection.,Encrypts and secures e-mail: Zix transports emails through its own secure, off-network system so attackers have little chance at getting the info to begin with, let alone decrypting it. Rules: Zix lets you set up rules to scan for certain topics or data, like socials or medical data, and then respond accordingly. This means not all e-mail has to go out secure, only the stuff that really needs to be. Accessibility: Recipients who do not have Zix get a link to log on to a portal where they can read their secure messages, but if they have Zix on their own network, the e-mails come through directly to their inbox with a small header that says it was sent securely.,Configuration: The UI to configure Zix is rather dated and non-intuitive at times. Some of the configuration options aren't well documented. Updates: I have yet to be able to update Zix without calling support. It is a complicated process. Updating the rules files is easy enough, I just wish the rest of the software was as simple. Recipient UI: While it's nice to have a portal for recipients without Zix to log in to, it looks very dated, much like the other UIs. We've had vendors ask us if it was legitimate because of how basic it is.,9,We have less concern about data leaks through e-mail with Zix, because we know it works. And it doesn't require any end user interaction with the rules (although it does also allow for manual encryption with keywords or e-mail flags). The system is also extremely stable, and outside of the upgrade tasks we have to do occasionally, there's not much manpower overhead once it's up and running. Recipients do sometimes get confused if they're expecting an e-mail from us, but get a link to log into the Zix portal instead.,Zix absolutely meets the goal of regulatory compliance. We ourselves are not technically under any regulatory compliance models, but we look to HIPAA, SOX, and various NIST documents as best practices. Zix has pre-configured files and rules for all of these, and many that are not for legal compliance models but also fall under best practices.,9,Citrix ShareFileZix - great solution for email encryption, archiving and peace of mind for securityWe leverage Zix as our enterprise solution for email encryption, threat protection and email archiving. IT solves any of our concerns or issues pertaining to encrypting sensitive emails, archiving email and safeguarding/filtering our incoming emails to the cooperation.,Simple and easy setup and installation. Zix performs encrypting based upon contextual analysis which greatly reduces the number of false positives. Zix greatly supports our needs to be HIPPA compliant and allows us to quarantine emails based upon selected criteria,Some end users struggle with the process to open secure emails, when they are not a Zix customer. Generally have to contact support anytime you want to create or edit rules, etc. which can be time consuming.,9,The ease of use greatly increased the level of acceptance and adoption within the corporation IT has met or exceeded our security needs, giving us peace of mind and comfort we are not losing sensitive data through our email system.,Zix has allowed us to easily meet our needs around HIPPA compliancy, along with allowing us to establish a thorough archiving program.,10,Mimecast Secure Email Gateway and Proofpoint Archiving and ComplianceHas PotentialWe use Zix for email encryption, security, and business continuity across the entire organization.,Its data loss protection filter works particularly well with very little false positives. Seamless encryption for sending emails to existing Zix customers is a plus.,The hosted platform could use a much-needed facelift. Can be a bit cumbersome to use and is not very easy to navigate. The ZixOne App should incorporate access to the local calendars on the device. Many users use local calendars to coordinate their personal and work life and not having this functionality has been a burden. Inserting attachments in messages with this app is also clunky as you can only attach one picture or file at a time (no multiple selections) and it goes into the body of the message instead of being a separate attachment.,6,From a security perspective, it brings peace of mind that information is being well protected and that messages are being scanned for malware and inappropriate links. There has been some issue with outside users accepting/accessing encrypted messages, so perhaps a review of the provided portal for usability is in order.,Yes, Zix most definitely meets this goal. With the appropriate DLP rules in place kicking back the non-encrypted email with sensitive information forces users to follow established policies for safe email handling practices.,4,Proofpoint Advanced Threat ProtectionZix and your encryption fix.We use it for email encryption and some restrictions such as, we don't allow .zip files in or out except in specific cases.,Their support is fast and very good. The Zix server we have does a great job of accurately encrypting email that should be, even if we forget. I really like that we can manually encrypt any email we want.,The interface. It's not at all user-friendly or intuitive.,10,The main thing for me is knowing that our emails are not going to be falling into the wrong hands.,Yes but that's not my area to report on.,7,It's great...no complaints at allWe utilize Zix company-wide for encrypting outbound email to maintain HIPAA compliance.,The ability to recognize patterns and keywords to trigger automatic encryption.,No complaints, the software works exactly as designed.,9,It offers peace of mind we are staying in compliance with HIPAA regulations.,Yes, extremely well.,9,Zix Secure Email ReviewZix Gateway is used across the whole organization to protect ePHI and scan/encrypt all outgoing emails.,Support. Ease of use.,It is pricey.,10,Increased compliance. Some customers don't like secured portals but I don't think that is necessarily just a Zix issue. Security.,Yes, It has met our need to encrypt any potential ePHI as it travels over the internet.,9,Title Escrow Closing Company breathes easier because ZIXWe use Zix everyday and throughout our organization. We are a Title Escrow Service and heavily communicate detailed non-public financial information with real estate buyers, sellers, agents, and lenders. We looked at countless solutions which were not able to serve our needs. Many were not very useable by customers. Most were too cumbersome for our agents to manage complex communication threads. Zix is also used by our largest clients, making even greater usability.,Great usability for outside users who may need heavy access for several weeks and almost never again. Streamlined operation for our agents, keeping communication threads organized (actually a function of our mail app - it is just that Zix actually allows this - it was a deal breaker with countless others) Of course, bullet proof and highly recognized encryption. (duh!) Lovely people at Zix supporting us!,We reported a major issue with accessing documents on a smart phone. The display hides the documents from the recipient, causing much confusion. I haven't heard any progress on improvement, and am quite surprised that this hasn't been addressed. I have never received free pizza from Zix. We always appreciate pizza.,10,Reduced customer complaints. We had to stop earlier products because we would have lost customers. No negative impact on user productivity. Tremendous peace of mind knowing that we are responsibly managing our customers critical non-public personal information. Especially nice that we have streamlined interaction with our largest clients.,We are required to comply with CFPB and many other requirements due to the sensitive information involved in real estate transactions. Our business is directly affected by lending institutions which require that we are diligent in surpassing these requirements. Zix does this effortlessly on our part.,9,,25,1,Ease of use for buyers, sellers, and real estate agents. They may use it heavily for a few weeks, and then be done. Ability to work with Macs and iOS. Allow communications to thread. Certified encryption. High availability.,Hmmmm. Nothing so earth shaking. Full integration with Apple Mail App, seems small, but it is huge for us.,Secure delivery of Abstracts of Title with controlled distribution, editing, and printing.,10,Google Drive, Apple iCloud,Yes,Zix isn't free. I held off due to cost consideration. But, I came to see the value. It took a while to realize that I needed a full time end user directly involved in the search process. Once I had them involved; it was much more efficient to recognize pitfalls which were deal breakers. The biggest issue that clear during this process was the importance of threaded conversations. I was well aware of the need to bullet proof security, rock solid reliability, and drop dead simple accessibility for end users. There were products that did pretty well in those regards. But, our agents need to be able to easily see each step of the communication thread. Often, a response would come as a simple 'no' of other ambiguity. Without maintaining a clear thread of to conversation; it was too difficult to follow, let alone understand fully the conversation. And, it would be very prone to error. This is not sustainable with transactions in the 5 and 6 figure range. And of course, our agents are dealing with many of these projects simultaneously.,Implemented in-house,Yes,Change management was minimal,really it was seamless. we had to change schedules due to personal conflicts and this was handed well.,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,10,10,Zix is so straightforward that there really isn't any learning curve. There was only a small amount of discovery required by our agents. There is little or no intervention required to help end users (buyers, sellers, lenders, and real estate agents) It is especially helpful that each is capable of using the system on the platform of their choice.,10,We haven't had any issues outside of the regular usage. It just works.,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,No need. Zix is transparent to our users. They send and receive mail using their mail app, without losing any functionality.,No,10,Yes,My sales executive was exceptional at working with me to get on board. But, it was beyond even that how she followed up after the sale. That is unusual with a product such as this. I stalled a lot in looking at Zix, because I believed that there could be a free solution to meet my needs. Nothing else worked, though. She called me agin because Zix had begun to offer a new configuration more ideally suited to our needs, and I bought in.,The actual system is transparent. It works well with Macs and iOS. Conversations thread within our mail app It is even more streamlined with our biggest volume clients.,The management tools are currently disorganized; this is being addressed. End users are often unable to see their documents when using a smart phone. Being transparent might make users forget that we are even using it.,Yes,10,10,10,G-Suite Apple Mail,I would love to be able to tie into our vertical application, Streamine ASP - First American Title It would be great to be able to integrate secure delivery of Abstracts of Title.,,10,They play well with others. I really cannot imagine that there are any conditions where this platform would not completely satisfy the needs of users. (I am using the cloud based solution; there are also hardware packages that install on-site) I really believe that their team can get it working in the end environment without significant change.,10,10,Net 30.,None really, they are a great organization.,No,We have not gone through a release upgrade/,A resolution to the issue where documents are hidden on a mobile device. Consolidation of the management portals. Free pizza for users,No,NoZix Gateway and email ecryption review from a law firmIt is currently being used by paralegal and legal assistants in our office. Zix addresses security and compliance concerns by automatically filtering and securing communications being sent out of our office. With past software, users had more control over what was secured but with Zix the communications are done behind the scenes automatically.,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.,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.,9,We have only had Zix in place for a few months but it has certainly created peace of mind that we have taken steps to protect all stakeholders. Initially some of my users questioned why things were being encrypted and the whole process behind the scenes. But as they have used it, there has been an increased acceptance of the software and overall I have heard positive results. Overall, the number of users utilizing Zix has increased over the last few months. We started with a smaller sample of licenses and will be adding to the entire firm as it has been a positive to our organization. I know that having this in place will protect our firm and our clients.,Zix definitely meets our needs to be complaint from a regulatory standpoint. Our biggest need was for HIPAA compliance but have found that Zix protects in many other ways that may not fall under HIPAA guidelines. It has also been beneficial on the financial side as we are in compliance with local legal guidelines along with other financial regulatory requirements when sending information with our banks and external accounts.,7,app riverEarly review!We have set parameters by which email messages from any of our employees which contain certain keywords or phrases will activate Zix. We have a concern that our email correspondence with clients and third parties be secure.,Since we have only been using Zix for a few weeks, I have very limited experience to base comments on. Our initial experience is that it appears easy for clients to use (not necessarily true for third parties with which we deal). The fact that key words or phrases will trigger email being sent by Zix is a great feature. Zix appears to be user friendly within our staff.,Our real estate paralegal reports that lenders and other companies which have heightened security on their end are not always able to receive email that has been sent securely by our office users of Zix. When our emails are not received because of lack of compatability, we experience problems.,8,We need more time to form an adequate basis for review on this question.,The effectiveness appears to be a factor of the quality of systems in use by the recipients.,8,My Take on ZixWe currently use Zix across the entire organization. We are utilizing it to protect information being sent by and to our organization that may include PHI, PCI and HIPAA related information.,It analyzes emails that may contain data that should be encrypted and automatically encrypts that data. It allows for specific personnel to bypass Zix and send an email that should not need to be encrypted. It allows for recipients outside of our organization to respond in an encrypted format to our users.,Recipients outside of our organization have found that it is cumbersome to have to login to the zix portal to receive it. When corresponding with a recipient back and forth, we have received feedback that not all the email recipients have received the email and it is not easy to trace the email. Better logging of whether a recipient received and opened that email. Easier way to delete a sent zix email/revoke that email.,9,The positive has been that we have been able to gain peace of mind knowing that zix encrypts emails automatically and we don't have to worry about a breach. Recipients have been positive knowing that the email that we sent them was protected. Negative has been that a large amount of recipients just don't bother opening the email and logging into the portal to retrieve that email.,Zix helps us meet requirements laid out by HIPAA and state regulations for sending data that contains personal information such as an SSN. By encrypting the data, we ensure that data sent from our end gets to point B in an encrypted and secure uncorruppted state.,9,Barracuda Email Security Service, Symantec Email Security.cloud and GFI VipreZix - time saver, customer protectorThe entire organization uses Zix. Originally, we had to log into a separate portal to send secure mail. The way Zix interfaces with Outlook GREATLY increases overall productivity across the bank. Also, the policies that run behind the scenes add an extra layer of protection to keep the bank and our customers' information safe.,The implementation turn around time was impressively fast! They did a great job branding the site, which makes our customers more comfortable.,I feel like an everyday person would struggle with writing or modifying the policies for Zix. Luckily they are always there for support, but the training for that part was definitely lacking.,10,We did have some issues at first with attachment size, so our customers were very confused about the need for our two separate portals, but I have not heard any complaints since that was resolved.,Yes, as a matter of fact, we were in the middle of an IT audit during the implementation phrase of Zix. The auditor applauded us for this project and seemed relieved that she didn't have to write us up for lacking a tool such as this.,7Zix Email EncryptionWith the growing rate of cyber-crime and identity theft, we recognize the importance of protecting the storage and transmission of client data now more than ever. We are committed to actively ensuring the privacy and security of our clients and the sensitive data that they entrust us with. For this reason, we decided to implement Zix’s Email Encryption Service across all departments to protect the contents of our outbound emails containing personally identifiable information, such as account numbers, social security numbers, banking and financial information, and more.,Customers find it easy to read and reply to emails that are received securely. We were able to establish a Subject Line "key word" that allows employees to easy send secure messages via their mobile devices. A large number of the insurance carriers we partner with use Zix as well, making our secure correspondence even easier. Our implementation specialist was extremely helpful, and made the process a lot easier than expected.,The pricing options when it comes to number of users were a little limited, especially for a small business.,10,80% of our life insurance carriers use Zix, and since implementation; we have noticed our communications have become much more efficient.,10Done and dusted!We are dealing with a healthcare company that requires HIPAA compliance and this was the easier way to effect that across email. We are able to effect protection of all the areas covered by the regulator with minimal interference by us and ease of use for the users and recipients of the encrypted emails,Protection of personal information gets restricted when sent out by mistake Credit card fraud is defended by no details leaking out Ease of use and integration into Outlook,Not all third party email clients are supported Encrypted replied remain in the system and do not sync back to the end user Recipients of the emails might be confused around replying,9,Directors' limited liability HIPAA compliance adherence done Protection of personal information,Yes it fully meets the goals of HIPAA compliance as dictated to in the healthcare environment,10,Mimecast Secure Email GatewaySecure email service great for businessesWe trust Zix to handle secure routing of sensitive information, specifically Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that should not be transmitted insecurely. Zix is used to automatically detect the recipient mail server that all of our employees send to, automatically securing and encrypting PII when necessary to reduce the human error factor, and keep our organizations safe and compliant.,Zix shows a banner on secure emails to help users trust the transmission. Zix gives us flexibility with an Outlook addin for additional options.,Receiving and logging in to Zix can be intimidating for recipients not on secure email systems, but it is a one time setup. Expensive,10,Helps users trust that we handle their information securely and carefully. Helps our business reputation working with other businesses that know we are secure.,Yes, Zix helps with compliance and recommendations of many regulatory bodies that recommend no insecure or unencrypted transmission of personally identifiable information such as drivers license numbers, bank accounts, wiring instructions, date of birth, social security numbers and other sensitive information, all TLS encrypted and secure and compliant. It is great!,8,Oneworld cloudstar, Citrix FileShare and OneDriveZix after 3 MonthsZix is used across our whole organization and other organizations that we service with our email server.

We have two portals for our organizations.,Tests contents of emails and attachments for social security numbers and the like. It does not check the content of pictures or scanned PDFs It is easy to use. Large customer base particularly in our industry means a lot of people do not have to use the portal It gives my customers a way to send us private information in an encrypted mannor,I figure that after we have used it for a while we will find some administrative things that we do not like but the user experience is very polished.,10,To early to tell but adoption has gone without any major issues.,I would say yes. If for no other reason than if audited we have taken a positive step towards maintaining security.,9,Zix keeping us safe!Our office starting use Zix Encrypt and have now added a Zix add-on that protects against email threats in all departments. The encrypt product works so well we don't even know it is being used. In the past we used Symantec Cloud (used to be Message Labs) but have made the switch to Zix and have not regretted it at all. Threat protection is a huge risk and almost half of our emails coming in to our domain either contain viruses or are listed as Spam.,The hospital we work with also uses Zix and being able to email back and forth with encryption without having to login to a separate portal saves time.

We use the ZixGateway to monitor outbound email and securely encrypt on demand, or based on policy, email containing confidential or electronic Patient Health Information (ePHI) ensuring HIPAA compliant email communications. We also use the ZixOne MDM product to sandbox corporate email on mobile devices.
  • Widespread usage of ZixGateway in the Healthcare arena makes end to end encryption very seamless for our users.
  • The product is easy to use. Our users can encrypt either through the use of an Outlook add-on that puts a "Send Securely" button in Outllook for Windows. Though there is no client for those users on a Mac, or those who use OWA, they can still easily encrypt by inserting a keyword in the subject line. As a safety net, the rules that are processed at the Gateway allow for automatic encryption when end users forget.
  • The ZixOne product has grown in functionality over the years and now includes the ability to encrypt from the mobile device. It's become a very stable, reliable program.
  • The backend management of the ZixGateway could be simplified. It took a while to get the hang of how the rules interacted with one another. That having been said, once we had it tweaked out, it's been relatively hands off. Since we rely on this for HIPAA compliance, an improvement in this area would be a periodic "health" check of our appliance to ensure we've not made a rules change that has invalidated the intended use of the product.
  • We would have liked to seen the ZixOne MDM product allow integration of calendar items with the device's native calendar application. That was the biggest complaint of our users, that their business calendar, which contained no ePHI, was now segregated from there personal calendar forcing them manage two separate calendars.
This recommendation is based on the combined rating of the ZixGateway (10) and ZixOne (8). The lowered score for ZixOne is based on my recommended improvements. ZixGateway is well suited for anyone with a need to encrypt email, manually or by rule. Due to the number of Zix clients in the Healthcare arena currently using ZixGateway, it is especially suitable due to the seamless process for the recipient. When the sender's ZixGateway is communicating with a ZixGateway at the receiver's site, the email is encrypted by the sending ZixGateway, decrypted by the receiving ZixGateway, and delivered to the recipient with no extra effort on their end. By comparison, most of the other vendors we evaluated forced their recipients to a Portal from which they could retrieve the secured email, requiring them to maintain yet another set of credentials.

Review: "Zix is a best practices solution that anyone with secure data should be using"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

We currently use Zix to ensure that sensitive data is encrypted when sent via email. Our entire organization uses it, as all e-mail gets relayed through the system to check for PII or other data. Given that we do a lot of work with financial and medical information, it is extremely important for us to have a solution that guarantees privacy protection.
  • Encrypts and secures e-mail: Zix transports emails through its own secure, off-network system so attackers have little chance at getting the info to begin with, let alone decrypting it.
  • Rules: Zix lets you set up rules to scan for certain topics or data, like socials or medical data, and then respond accordingly. This means not all e-mail has to go out secure, only the stuff that really needs to be.
  • Accessibility: Recipients who do not have Zix get a link to log on to a portal where they can read their secure messages, but if they have Zix on their own network, the e-mails come through directly to their inbox with a small header that says it was sent securely.
  • Configuration: The UI to configure Zix is rather dated and non-intuitive at times. Some of the configuration options aren't well documented.
  • Updates: I have yet to be able to update Zix without calling support. It is a complicated process. Updating the rules files is easy enough, I just wish the rest of the software was as simple.
  • Recipient UI: While it's nice to have a portal for recipients without Zix to log in to, it looks very dated, much like the other UIs. We've had vendors ask us if it was legitimate because of how basic it is.
Zix is great for anyone who has to send and receive sensitive data like financial or medical records and guarantee their security. If your organization needs to follow regulations like SOX, HIPAA, or something similar, and you have an IT team or managed service provider that can maintain it, Zix is a great solution. I also think it's best suited to an on-premises e-mail solution because of how it integrates with mail flow for scanning, although I believe they have a version for Office 365. If instead, your organization only occasionally sends things secured or does not have the IT support staff to maintain it, it might be worth looking for a different solution. For the most part, once it's installed, it doesn't require much hands-on, but there are enough occasions that without expertise it could remain daunting.

We leverage Zix as our enterprise solution for email encryption, threat protection and email archiving. IT solves any of our concerns or issues pertaining to encrypting sensitive emails, archiving email and safeguarding/filtering our incoming emails to the cooperation.
  • Simple and easy setup and installation.
  • Zix performs encrypting based upon contextual analysis which greatly reduces the number of false positives.
  • Zix greatly supports our needs to be HIPPA compliant and allows us to quarantine emails based upon selected criteria
  • Some end users struggle with the process to open secure emails, when they are not a Zix customer.
  • Generally have to contact support anytime you want to create or edit rules, etc. which can be time consuming.
Very well suited for the healthcare environment. Also great for companies with small IT support staff as the system is very low maintenance.

Zix Review: "Has Potential"

We use Zix for email encryption, security, and business continuity across the entire organization.
  • Its data loss protection filter works particularly well with very little false positives.
  • Seamless encryption for sending emails to existing Zix customers is a plus.
  • The hosted platform could use a much-needed facelift. Can be a bit cumbersome to use and is not very easy to navigate.
  • The ZixOne App should incorporate access to the local calendars on the device. Many users use local calendars to coordinate their personal and work life and not having this functionality has been a burden. Inserting attachments in messages with this app is also clunky as you can only attach one picture or file at a time (no multiple selections) and it goes into the body of the message instead of being a separate attachment.
It's a well-suited product for any organization that is required to protect sensitive information where compliance is a must.

We use Zix everyday and throughout our organization. We are a Title Escrow Service and heavily communicate detailed non-public financial information with real estate buyers, sellers, agents, and lenders. We looked at countless solutions which were not able to serve our needs. Many were not very useable by customers. Most were too cumbersome for our agents to manage complex communication threads. Zix is also used by our largest clients, making even greater usability.
  • Great usability for outside users who may need heavy access for several weeks and almost never again.
  • Streamlined operation for our agents, keeping communication threads organized (actually a function of our mail app - it is just that Zix actually allows this - it was a deal breaker with countless others)
  • Of course, bullet proof and highly recognized encryption. (duh!)
  • Lovely people at Zix supporting us!
  • We reported a major issue with accessing documents on a smart phone. The display hides the documents from the recipient, causing much confusion. I haven't heard any progress on improvement, and am quite surprised that this hasn't been addressed.
  • I have never received free pizza from Zix. We always appreciate pizza.
It has almost perfectly met our needs. A title company with 25 users that requires encrypted communication countless times daily. I am not sure that it would work as well for a small 2 user setup due to cost; I haven't checked that. I work with a small dental office that fits that scenario. There are many HIPAA solutions that match their use case, however.

"Zix Gateway and email ecryption review from a law firm"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

It is currently being used by paralegal and legal assistants in our office. Zix addresses security and compliance concerns by automatically filtering and securing communications being sent out of our office. With past software, users had more control over what was secured but with Zix the communications are done behind the scenes automatically.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.

We have set parameters by which email messages from any of our employees which contain certain keywords or phrases will activate Zix. We have a concern that our email correspondence with clients and third parties be secure.
  • Since we have only been using Zix for a few weeks, I have very limited experience to base comments on. Our initial experience is that it appears easy for clients to use (not necessarily true for third parties with which we deal).
  • The fact that key words or phrases will trigger email being sent by Zix is a great feature.
  • Zix appears to be user friendly within our staff.
  • Our real estate paralegal reports that lenders and other companies which have heightened security on their end are not always able to receive email that has been sent securely by our office users of Zix.
  • When our emails are not received because of lack of compatability, we experience problems.
Excellent for sending correspondence to clients in normal settings. [Concerned] that correspondence is not being received by lenders and other parties who have their own secure systems in place which may limit receipt of emails from our office.

We currently use Zix across the entire organization. We are utilizing it to protect information being sent by and to our organization that may include PHI, PCI and HIPAA related information.
  • It analyzes emails that may contain data that should be encrypted and automatically encrypts that data.
  • It allows for specific personnel to bypass Zix and send an email that should not need to be encrypted.
  • It allows for recipients outside of our organization to respond in an encrypted format to our users.
  • Recipients outside of our organization have found that it is cumbersome to have to login to the zix portal to receive it.
  • When corresponding with a recipient back and forth, we have received feedback that not all the email recipients have received the email and it is not easy to trace the email.
  • Better logging of whether a recipient received and opened that email.
  • Easier way to delete a sent zix email/revoke that email.
It is great to use Zix when we send listings or reports to some of our locals. We also use it heavily when we correspond with our software vendor.

It is less appropriate when Zix incorrectly identifies an email as containing materials and auto encrypts that email.

The entire organization uses Zix. Originally, we had to log into a separate portal to send secure mail. The way Zix interfaces with Outlook GREATLY increases overall productivity across the bank. Also, the policies that run behind the scenes add an extra layer of protection to keep the bank and our customers' information safe.
  • The implementation turn around time was impressively fast!
  • They did a great job branding the site, which makes our customers more comfortable.
  • I feel like an everyday person would struggle with writing or modifying the policies for Zix. Luckily they are always there for support, but the training for that part was definitely lacking.
I feel like Zix is absolutely perfect for those in the financial industry. I would guess that at least half of our outbound emails have sensitive information that needs to be encrypted. Why not minimize the risk of data leaks?

With the growing rate of cyber-crime and identity theft, we recognize the importance of protecting the storage and transmission of client data now more than ever. We are committed to actively ensuring the privacy and security of our clients and the sensitive data that they entrust us with. For this reason, we decided to implement Zix’s Email Encryption Service across all departments to protect the contents of our outbound emails containing personally identifiable information, such as account numbers, social security numbers, banking and financial information, and more.
  • Customers find it easy to read and reply to emails that are received securely.
  • We were able to establish a Subject Line "key word" that allows employees to easy send secure messages via their mobile devices.
  • A large number of the insurance carriers we partner with use Zix as well, making our secure correspondence even easier.
  • Our implementation specialist was extremely helpful, and made the process a lot easier than expected.
  • The pricing options when it comes to number of users were a little limited, especially for a small business.
Secure email encryption is a must in today's day and age. Introducing it to clients can be a little bumpy, but if you can effectively explain that the email encryption will help to ensure that their personal information is protected it makes it easier. Zix assists with this by providing pre-scripted templates that can be used to educate clients and employees about the new process.

  • Credit card fraud is defended by no details leaking out
  • Ease of use and integration into Outlook
  • Not all third party email clients are supported

We trust Zix to handle secure routing of sensitive information, specifically Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that should not be transmitted insecurely. Zix is used to automatically detect the recipient mail server that all of our employees send to, automatically securing and encrypting PII when necessary to reduce the human error factor, and keep our organizations safe and compliant.
  • Zix shows a banner on secure emails to help users trust the transmission.
  • Zix gives us flexibility with an Outlook addin for additional options.
  • Receiving and logging in to Zix can be intimidating for recipients not on secure email systems, but it is a one time setup.
  • Expensive
Zix is an excellent solution for law firms that need to ensure compliance and security to the highest degree. In North Carolina the NC Bar Association has approved and recommended Zix to be a trustworthy source and leader to provide excellent and unmatched security and protection of personally identifiable information.

Zix is used across our whole organization and other organizations that we service with our email server. We have multiple policy based rules that encrypt email that should be be emailed encrypted in the event that they send something and forget to use the encryption button. We have two portals for our organizations.
  • Tests contents of emails and attachments for social security numbers and the like. It does not check the content of pictures or scanned PDFs
  • It is easy to use.
  • Large customer base particularly in our industry means a lot of people do not have to use the portal
  • It gives my customers a way to send us private information in an encrypted mannor
  • I figure that after we have used it for a while we will find some administrative things that we do not like but the user experience is very polished.
The policy based encryption could be a crutch that lulls people into a false sense of security. Users ultimately have to be aware of what they are sending and who they are sending it too.

Our office starting use Zix Encrypt and have now added a Zix add-on that protects against email threats in all departments. The encrypt product works so well we don't even know it is being used. In the past we used Symantec Cloud (used to be Message Labs) but have made the switch to Zix and have not regretted it at all. Threat protection is a huge risk and almost half of our emails coming in to our domain either contain viruses or are listed as Spam.
  • The hospital we work with also uses Zix and being able to email back and forth with encryption without having to login to a separate portal saves time.
  • The amount of emails that Zix protects from threatening viruses is saving us time.
  • Zix Support is wonderful and their deployment teams work really hard to get you up and running really fast.
  • There online portal is a bit outdated.

Zix is being used by a department in our organization. My department is the only one in the organization that specifically provide direct services in which requires us to safeguard against protected health information. We also coordinate care with other agencies and using this allows us to communicate with others agencies securely. Problems that this addresses include, communication, safety, client care, time, availability related to the client and other resources.
  • Zix allows you to simply communicate with others securely without difficulty. Keyword provides a easy way to encrypt your messages without having to go through a long process.
  • They are available to troubleshoot problems. They are great at communicating and being available if needed regarding the product.
  • They provided continued services to ensure the product is working well. Frequent emails from tech support and customer services regarding feedback.
  • Clarity on product setup. I had difficulty with starting the package due to email not being compatible initially to the package.
  • Several people to talk with regarding set up. It was somewhat confusing as to who the contact was to set up package.
  • Difficulty to understand the set-features and understanding how to change features within the package.
Zix is appropriate in any setting that requires protected health information. So any exchange of personal client information like names, DOB, SS number, address or anything that could potential make this person identifiable to someone else. This would be less appropriate in scenarios in which two entities are just exchanging general information that is not protected by certain standards for example a general inquire regarding products or items.

  • It scans emails and finds words that indicate information needs to be encrypted such as driver's license or date of birth.
  • Offers a way to force encryption in case you are unsure if the email will send as encrypted and you know you are sending sensitive information
  • Also offers a way to make sure an email doesn't encrypt in case words or attachments might get "caught" by the Zix email scan
