Executive Summary

Sporton International Inc., the largest certification company in Taiwan, is privy to some of the most sensitive trade secrets of its customers. Sporton employees send 100,000 instant messages daily, but the company had no way to ensure that employees were not inadvertently sharing its confidential information with each other - or worse, with competitors. Also, its desktop antivirus solutions alone were not sufficient to detect IM-based viruses. Microsoft Forefront Security for Office Communications Server now helps Sporton enforce corporate information-sharing policies in Instant Messaging (IM) conversations. It has reduced virus infections transmitted through IM-based file transfers by 20 percent and has cut the cost of managing IM security by 50 percent, a savings of U.S. $35,000 annually.
