ZixDirectory


Transparent email encryption between ZixCorp users

zixdirectory-improvedA basic element of email encryption is connecting unique recipients to encrypted messages. The most common method is to use a public/private key. Only the recipient with the right key can unlock the message, but building a network of keys is complicated and expensive.

ZixCorp has developed the world’s largest, centralized repository for automatic key exchange — ZixDirectory – to eliminate the customers’ need to build their own directory of encryption keys. With the ZixDirectory, the keys are exchanged automatically and transparently, enabling ZixCorp customers to communicate secure messages seamlessly.
