Zix’s advanced email threat protection is the perfect solution for businesses looking to protect their emails from malware, ransomware, and other threats. It combines advanced threat protection, encryption, and data security to ensure your emails remain safe and secure.

Zix Overview

Zix provides advanced all-in-one email threat protection, archiving, email encryption, and secure file-sharing solutions. Their platform is designed to help organizations protect against email-borne threats and meet regulatory compliance requirements. Zix Email Threat Protection provides multilayered filtering that permits legitimate email while blocking malicious threats such as phishing, impersonation, malware, ransomware, and spam-type messages—all automatically.

One of the key features of Zix’s platform is Attachment Quarantine. This feature performs forensic analysis on attachments in Zix’s secure, cloud-based sandbox environment. It can also deliver a disarmed version of files by removing macros or converting files to PDF, which can help to reduce the risk of malware infections and other security breaches.

Another important feature of Zix’s platform is Link Protection. This feature rewrites all links to safe versions and performs time-of-click analysis on the destination address. Based on testing, users are either automatically redirected to a safe site, provided a warning for suspicious sites, or blocked from potentially malicious sites. This helps to protect users from phishing and other types of email-borne threats.

Additionally, Zix offers Message Retraction (for Microsoft 365), which enhances incident response and can retract malicious emails already delivered to users’ inboxes. This minimizes risk by taking malicious emails out of users’ hands and quickens remediation. The system keeps a detailed audit trail. They also have a 24/7/365 Live Threat Analyst Team that is constantly identifying new threats, updating the system, and providing warnings to help organizations stay ahead of cyber threats.
