Integration of enterprise-grade cloud backup offering streamlines billing and customer management for partners, helping them achieve a 360-degree view of their corporate communications on a single, easy-to-use platform
DALLAS — October 12, 2021 — Zix Corporation (Zix) (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leading provider of cloud email security, productivity, and compliance solutions, today announced its cloud-based data backup and recovery solution is now available through its intuitive Secure Cloud platform. Now, customers can experience complete visibility into communication security and compliance for Microsoft Office 365, Google Workspace, SharePoint, OneDrive, Salesforce, Box and Dropbox.
Zix is committed to providing comprehensive support for cybersecurity and compliance services for its partners and their end customers. The company acquired CloudAlly and its robust suite of award-winning, ISO 27001 certified and GDPR/HIPAA compliant solutions. Now, this seamless integration of CloudAlly’s offerings into Zix’s Secure Cloud platform strengthens its value for partners by eliminating the need for them to manage these services through different environments.
“SaaS providers are in the infrastructure business, not the backup business,” said Dave Wagner, CEO, Zix. “We heard from our partners firsthand that backup and recovery services were needed within our Secure Cloud to achieve a single pane of glass view just by logging in to the portal. With this announcement, Zix is excited to become the only cybersecurity company that offers Microsoft 365 licensing, third-party security and compliance, resiliency via backup and recovery, and email continuity, all through one convenient portal.”
Backup and recovery keep businesses resilient against accidental data loss, threat actors, broken systems workflows, and natural disasters. Using a SaaS application doesn’t mean organisations will automatically have their data backed up. However, according to ESG’s Master Survey Results on 2021 Data Protection Cloud Strategies, confusion still exists regarding who is responsible for backing up SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365 and Salesforce. Only 13% of IT professionals surveyed understood that they are solely responsible for backing up the data on these applications. This oversight is leaving many organisations with serious security and compliance gaps.
“At Think Cloud we pride ourselves on our innovative approach and using best-in-class cloud solutions. Secure Cloud provides us with a single platform to protect our clients’ Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 environments. Giving our clients and ourselves peace of mind.” Scott Clark, Co-Founder of Think Cloud says “We love this product as it makes protecting our clients data so simple and gives us advanced functionality.”
