Encryption For Backup

The company has renewed its contract with the hospital for the fourth time.

Zix Corporation has renewed its contract to provide Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with email encryption services for the fourth time. Email encryption “automatically” works to prevent emails containing protected health information (PHI) from slipping through the system without being encrypted.

PHI includes information about a specific individual’s health status, provision of healthcare, or payment for healthcare and includes any part of a patient's medical record or payment history. Zix Email Encryption enables more than 8,000 users at Cincinnati Children’s to send emails containing sensitive information safely and securely.

ZixDirectory also comes with email encryption services from the company. This directory manages the secure delivery of email between member organizations in an automated, transparent fashion. Cincinnati Children’s Hospital communicates with more than 1,400 organizations in the ZixDirectory, meaning the service will ensure all of the emails are secured through transparent email encryption.

Zix Corporation provides solutions for encryption, data loss prevention, and bring-your-own-device, all in the context of email. The company has SOC3/SysTrust and PCI Level 1, DSS V2.0 certification as well as SOC2 accreditation. Zix Corporation’s headquarters are in Dallas, TX. The company also has offices in Burlington, MA, and Ottawa, Canada.

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is a non-profit academic medical center. The hospital has nearly 600 registered beds and offers comprehensive clinical services, from well-child care to treatments for rare and complex conditions.
