Executive Summary

Email security solutions fall into three basic categories: software-based, appliance-based and managed services (also known as SaaS - Software-as-a-Service). Key weaknesses of software-based and appliance-based solutions include:

  • Difficulties in ensuring the solution stays up-to-date
  • Major commitment of in-house IT resources
  • Ongoing investment in additional software/hardware etc, substantially increasing total cost of ownership
By comparison, managed services offer many clear advantages:
  • A clean email "pipe"
  • Round-the-clock, constantly updated real-time protection
  • Freeing up of in-house IT resources
  • Lower costs
