Netgain, a privately held provider of hosted application services, announced it’s partnership with ZixCorp, the leading provider of email encryption services. The partnership will allow for a hosted offering of ZixMail for Netgain clients and act as a complementary service to Netgain’s current security suite.
With the use of email as a critical form of communication across all industries, the risk of data breach also increases. Industries like healthcare and finance are especially at risk because of the nature of data transmitted, and have implemented security regulations and compliance standards to protect the electronic transmission of such sensitive data.
Netgain, who primarily serves the healthcare industry, is adding the secure email service to their security suite for their small and midsize clients. The offering will be a value-add for their current clients, already in Netgain’s securely hosted environment. For prospective clients, the email encryption solution enhances Netgain’s value proposition and adds a greater level of security to their end-to-end solution.
In seeing the risks of breach that end-users experience when transmitting sensitive data via email, Netgain began a search for the de facto standard in email security. “We quickly realized that ZixCorp offered the most comprehensive email security measures in the industry,” said Matt Riley, Netgain’s COO.
The hosted model of ZixMail allows organizations to implement the solution with little to no costs of implementation or maintenance. “It’s been well received by our current clients. They see the need for it, and are pleased that Netgain has done the leg-work to identify the best provider, and offer it to them in the hosted model. That’s why organizations work with Netgain – they trust that we will offer them with the best tools available to protect the integrity of their organization’s data,” Riley said.
“Netgain’s expertise in hosting, and Zix’s email encryption service will allow organizations of all sizes to transmit comply with the mandated compliance and regulations required without incurring capital expenses of implementing the solution in-house,” said Steven Irons, Vice-President of Channel Sales for ZixCorp.
