This week Stewart Title, a global title insurance and real estate services company, announced they were partnering with ZixCorp, an email encryption provider, to offer ZixMail—a secure email solution.
“At Stewart, our customers and partners are our first priority,” said Matt Morris, CEO of Stewart. “Protecting their non-public personal information and maintaining data security are essential in today’s business environment, which relies so heavily on email for fast and efficient communication. Stewart is pleased to partner with ZixCorp to offer this new service throughout all Stewart Title locations to help protect our customers’ non-public personal information and comply with industry best practices.”
In their release, Stewart explained that ZixMail is a desktop service that encrypts emails and attachments, ensuring that documents are sent securely. ZixMail integrates with corporate and Web-based email systems and optional plug-ins are available for Microsoft Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013. Emails sent with ZixMail maintain the agent’s email address but provide the additional benefit of added security. ZixMail is also available to Stewart’s Trusted Provider network of independent title agencies.
