Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announces that Goodwin House has renewed its contract with ZixCorp in a five-year agreement. Goodwin House owns and operates retirement communities in Virginia and began using Zix Email Encryption in 2010 to securely communicate protected health information (PHI) for residents who are receiving healthcare or assisted living services.
All Goodwin House employees use ZixGateway® to protect its residents’ privacy in email and comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). ZixGateway is a policy-based email encryption service that automatically scans and encrypts outbound email containing sensitive information. Its ease of use combined with proven scanning and detection capabilities were the top factors in Goodwin House’s decision to renew with ZixCorp.
“Protecting our residents’ privacy is essential to maintaining their trust and providing the quality services they expect from our organization,” said David Fowler, Director of Information Technology for Goodwin House. “We recognize the importance of communicating PHI securely and require a solution that our employees can use comfortably on a daily basis. Not only does ZixCorp’s solution make secure email easy for our employees, but its out-of-the-box policies prevent disclosure errors with automatic scanning and encryption, providing added reassurance that our residents’ valuable information is protected.”
To properly identify and protect sensitive information in email, ZixCorp uses sophisticated lexicons that recognize sensitive information as defined by special policies for healthcare, insurance, finance and research industries. Lexicons are also available to identify social security numbers, profanity and personal information protected by state regulations.
“More than 15 years of experience in email encryption, along with our dedication to innovation, has allowed us to refine an out-of-the-box solution that customers can deploy in a day and confidently use for years to come,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Every component, from our lexicons to our unique community approach, is critical to making the industry’s easiest to use solution, and we appreciate Goodwin House for seeing the value in our email encryption and continuing to rely on ZixCorp to meet their email data protection and compliance needs.”

Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
