Statement by Joel Smith
AppRiver Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Regarding
Zix Corporation’s Definitive Agreement to Acquire AppRiver
“We’re incredibly excited about AppRiver joining forces with the publicly traded Zix Corporation. Zix, a market leader in compliance solutions, focuses on small and medium enterprises, which complement AppRiver’s own cybersecurity and productivity solutions. That gives us the ability to offer a more complete suite of security services to our 4,500-strong reseller community and makes the combined company a powerful force in the market.
“This is also great news for Northwest Florida as it effectively adds a new, top-tier player to the already impressive CyberCoast lineup that includes the best of private-sector, institutional, and governmental organizations.
“It was incredibly important to AppRiver that anyone we team with shares our commitment to customers, partners, employees, and our CyberCoast community. Our conversations with Zix have given us the assurance that this is the right move at the right time for both companies. We look forward to an exciting future as part of Zix.”
