Policy Base Encryption provider, Zix is making changes on the Policy-based encryption portals to improve user's privacy and how it handles user's personal data.
Policy-based encryption Portals (Zix)
Policy-Based Encryption uses Data Protection Policy to identify which email needs to be encrypted. Policy-Based Encryption encrypts specific emails based on a policy. That is a set of rules that are designed to analyze all email and encrypt any email that matches the predefined conditions.
The user's email address will be removed from the URL in the following email notifications:
The email address will not be display in the URL within the email notification and will not populate on the portal with the user's email address after the link is clicked on. It is a trade-off between user experience and a privacy risk as the change is protecting the user's information from being harvested.
The change will begin on September 20, 2018, at 00:00 UTC and will be completed by October 11, 2018, at 23:45 UTC.
The first time you receive a secure email, you are asked to register. Registration is a one-time, quick and easy process. You receive an email message in your email Inbox notifying you that you have an encrypted message in the Portal. You must then register with the same email address that received the notification to access your secure messages.
You may also register by going directly to the MessageLabs Sign In screen and selecting the Register button.
Note: If you see the Google or Microsoft icons on the Sign In screen, you can register and sign in with your existing Google or Microsoft email addresses instead of creating a new Symantec sign in. You must register with the same account that received the notification message in order to access secure messages with Symantec.
