Cisco On-Premises Email Encryption

In October 2015 Cisco and ZixCorp® introduced ZixGateway with Cisco Technology (ZCT), an email encryption appliance that delivers simple, secure management of email encryption services. Completely on-site, the ZixGateway with Cisco Technology solution works in conjunction with Cisco Email Security Appliance by using its content filtering to identify messages requiring encryption.

Features and Capabilities

Automated Key Management

ZixGateway with Cisco Technology automates the most complicated and costly aspect of email encryption: key management. ZixGateway with Cisco Technology handles all key management, so keys and certificates are hidden from senders and recipients. ZixGateway with Cisco Technology uses ZixCorp ZixDirectory, the world's largest email encryption repository, with more than 46 million members.

The Only Fully Transparent Delivery

ZixGateway with Cisco Technology automatically determines the most efficient way to securely deliver messages using the ZixCorp Best Method of Delivery (BMOD). Through BMOD, ZixGateway with Cisco Technology delivers encrypted email to anyone, anywhere, and often transparently.

ZixGateway with Cisco Technology offers the industry's only bidirectional transparent email encryption so that senders and recipients can exchange encrypted email without extra steps. When a ZixGateway with Cisco Technology customer sends encrypted email to another ZixGateway with Cisco Technology customer, the message and replies are delivered securely and transparently so that even a password is not needed. On average, more than one-third of our customers' recipients receive their encrypted email transparently.

Superior Support for TLS

ZixGateway with Cisco Technology is unique in its support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) in several ways. ZixGateway with Cisco Technology simplifies the set-up of TLS configurations by making it a part of the email encryption policies, which makes enabling TLS as easy as selecting it as a delivery method. By including TLS in the policy, compliance and security officers also have increased control of and visibility into how sensitive data is delivered. Recipients who support the appropriate level of TLS, receive secure email transparently, further enhancing ease of use.

Flexible Delivery

For recipients who do not have email encryption capabilities, ZixGateway with Cisco Technology offers two different delivery methods: ZixCorp ZixPort and Cisco IronPort PXE. ZixPort is a pull technology that provides a secure portal for delivering sensitive information to customers and partners. It can be branded and integrated in your corporate portal. Cisco IronPort PXE is a push technology that delivers encrypted email directly to user in boxes. All of these options combine to create the ZixCorp Best Method of Delivery, which automatically determines the most secure and transparent method of sending your message.

State-of-the-Art Reporting Dashboard

ZixGateway with Cisco Technology also offers superior visibility for compliance and security officers through a customizable reporting dashboard. With more than 25 different reports, the dashboard provides instant access to information about outbound and inbound message data, including what policies were triggered, what delivery method was used, and top senders and receivers.
