Digging a little deeper, we find that on 9/5/2007, Postini released it Encryption Services Admin Guide for it�s Email encryption add-on service which uses� you guess it, ZIXI technology. Here�s the manual: https://www.postini.com/webdocs/encrypt/en_US/encrypt_admin/encrypt_admin.pdf On page 23 under Features and Benefits, you will see �Use of industry-leading ZixCorp encryption technology�. Do a search for ZIX and you will find 17 instances basically stating that ZIXI technology and it�s directory services not only JUST integrated into the program but they are the exclusive encryption provider for Postini/Google. Bingo! Question is� is GOOG interested in the encryption technology enough to buy or take a stake in ZIXI? That�s the main speculation. Google has also made public it�s intention to build the most powerful internet based health portal for medical records, information and such. Could a deal be in the works for pocket script being involved with this portal?
GOOG speculation/connection: There has also been speculation of GOOG and ZIXI. Upon hours of digging, I found the connection. GOOG bought Postini.com on 6/9/2007 for $625 million in cash and plans an ipo spinoff. Postini is in the in the email security business along with instant messaging and electronic communications with over 10 million end users and ZIXI�s encryption technology is embedded directly into Postini�s email encryption manager. http://www.zixcorp.com/partners/strategic.php Postini was such a key strategic buy for GOOG as they are integrating Postini services directly into it�s Google Apps Premiere Edition. http://www.news.com/8301-10784_3-9789901-7.html?tag=nefd.blgs �As many as 1,500 businesses have been signing up per day, according to Scott Petri, founder of Postini and a product management director at Google� and http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/stories/2007/10/01/daily41.html?jst=b_ln_hl
