E-mail encryption added to Webroot's e-mail service

Webroot Software : 27 April, 2009  (New Product)
Security as a service based e-mail protection from Webroot gains encryption in agreement with Zix Corporation
Webroot has announced a strategic partnership with Zix Corporation, a provider of email encryption services. Webroot will embed the ZixCorp email encryption service into its next release of Webroot Email Security SaaS to help organisations better protect employee and company data to meet compliance and data security requirements.

"Recent laws and compliance regulations demand that businesses encrypt email communications that contain certain confidential and personal information. By adding email encryption technology to Webroot Email Security SaaS, our customers will benefit from more powerful and robust encryption services that improve data security and make compliance requirements easier to manage," said Don Beck, Webroot General Manager of SaaS. "ZixCorp's email encryption services are recognised for ensuring seamless and secure communications. We're excited to move to the next phase of this partnership."

When integrated with the existing rules engine and pre-defined compliance dictionaries of Webroot Email Security SaaS, the Webroot Email Encryption Service expands data loss prevention capabilities and improves the secure handling of confidential company data. Customisable encryption policies will allow automatic email encryption based on existing administration rules. Users can also encrypt communications on an as-needed basis. Messages are sent securely even if the recipient does not have encryption capabilities, eliminating the need for users to manage encryption keys.

"We're thrilled that Webroot has selected us as its email encryption partner," said Nigel Johnson, Vice-President of Business Development and Product Management, ZixCorp. "Webroot has proven experience as a security provider. We're looking forward to a long and successful partnership as each of our companies continues on a course of rapid growth."

Webroot plans to launch the new technology with the next global release of Webroot Email Security SaaS, scheduled for summer of 2009.
