Financial institutions have a responsibility to protect customer information. That used to mean non-user friendly programs that were clunky and difficult. Sure, the data was protected, but they were also incredibly inconvenient for everyone involved.
This was the issue DCP, LLC was running into with its previous email encryption solution, Cisco IronPort Encryption Appliance (IEA). Both employees and customers were complaining that the solution was too cumbersome – regularly encrypting emails that didn’t contain sensitive information and forcing users through a painful delivery process.
DCP realized it would need an encryption solution that offered first-class security and also emphasized a user friendly experience for both employees and customers. And with Cisco announcing the end of life for its IEA solution in July 2015, time was of the essence. This made the switch to Zix Email Encryption an easy decision.
The broad use of Zix Email Encryption in the financial industry was a contributing factor in DCP’s switch to ZixCorp. All federal financial regulators, more than 20 state financial regulators, such as the Missouri Division of Finance, and one in every five U.S. banks trust ZixCorp to secure their email.
“ZixCorp is a trusted company within the banking industry, which provided us with even greater confidence as we transitioned to its email encryption,” said Shane Nunn, Network Systems Engineer at DCP.
Shane will provide additional insight into his selection of Zix Email Encryption and his experience with the switch in a webinar on Sept. 30. To register for the online event, click here.
