First State Bank of Bedias Satisfies Mobile Security Needs and Employee BYOD Demands with ZixOne

ZixOne also provides assistance with regulatory compliance

BEDIAS, Texas & DALLAS--()--Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, today announced that First State Bank of Bedias (FSBB) selected ZixOne® to grant employees secure access to corporate email on both personal and company-owned mobile devices. By streaming corporate email through ZixOne and not allowing that corporate data to reside on the device, FSBB is able to enhance employee productivity and protect corporate data, with increased benefits for Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) use including employee convenience and privacy.

“Initially, we only supplied bank-owned phones to executives. When we considered expanding access to other employees, we found other approaches imposed on employee control and it was hard to dictate what employees could or could not do on their own personal devices,” said Jody Smith, Senior Vice President of Info Systems & Operations for FSBB. “ZixOne was a cure-all. It significantly reduced the likelihood of a breach without taking convenience, control or privacy away from our employees.”

FSBB provides ZixOne to all employees who choose to use mobile devices for business purposes. If a mobile device is lost or stolen, an FSBB administrator can simply disable access to corporate email from that device through ZixOne. Since that corporate data never resides on the device, it is not exposed and does not have to be wiped or deleted.

“With the benefits that come from a mobile workforce, there is demand from businesses for a mobile security solution that is secure and convenient to use for both corporate and personal devices,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s chairman and chief executive officer. “The unique approach of ZixOne enables businesses like First State Bank of Bedias to execute their mobile security strategies simply and with the highest standards for security, convenience and employee privacy. In doing so, ZixOne removes significant barriers to adoption and is easily accepted by companies and employees alike.”

“Ease of use is a major benefit of ZixOne. We deployed the solution on a Friday afternoon, and our employees installed and used the app on their own immediately,” said Smith. “We don’t worry about local storage, and our regulators are pleased that we have a clear answer for mobile risks. In a recent audit, the controls in place through ZixOne were easy to explain and quickly satisfied their requirements.”

ZixOne is priced per employee for use across iOS and Android devices. It can be deployed with Microsoft Exchange in less than an hour, and the app can be downloaded to the user’s device in less than a minute.
