“The first quarter of 2019 was positive in a number of meaningful ways,” CEO David Wagner said. “We closed the acquisition of AppRiver, successfully executed on our previously communicated cost-savings initiatives, and delivered 20% plus growth of Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) at AppRiver along with 74% new first year orders growth at Zix. We topped off Q1 by winning the largest deal in the company’s history with a top 5 US bank.”

AppRiver, a cloud cybersecurity firm, was acquired by Zix in February.
