ZixCorp Mobile Email App ZixOne Offers BYOD Security
The platform aims to meet the desire to keep corporate IT away from personal devices while keeping content secure and meeting compliance needs.Email data protection specialist ZixCorp introduced ZixOne, a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobile email application designed to help solve the diverging needs of protecting corporate data in email, while allowing employees to maintain privacy and control of their personal devices. The platform delivers email data protection in the form of a mobile app that enables corporate email access without allowing the data to reside on an employee's personal device where it has greater potential for compromise. The approach is designed to provide a secure mobile email environment that is familiar and acceptable to mobile users. If the device is lost or stolen, ZixOne can disable access to corporate email from that device. After entering a passcode, employees read, compose, reply and forward corporate email as usual. Their business calendar and contacts remain intact and are accessible through the app. In addition, employees can view attachments from the exchange server. "Many organizations have learned from bring your own device (BYOD) projects that the success or failure of IT choices hinges upon user acceptance of the solution and whether it's perceived as having a productive and pleasant user experience," Trent Henry, vice president, of identity and security for IT research firm Gartner, said in a statement.
ZixOne aims to meet the users' desire to keep corporate IT away from their devices while giving IT the ability to secure content and meet compliance needs, with access to work email in a secure, user-friendly environment. It allows users to stay productive while preserving device independence.
