Business email has become the dominant method of both internal and external corporate communication and collaboration in virtually every industry. It is a tool one uses and relies upon as much as the phone, and in many instances even more so. Email is used for file sharing, contact management, resource scheduling and as the hub of collaborative projects. A large volume of these messages include the exchange of sensitive financial data and intellectual property from every department within an organization. In fact, from the tens of millions of emails exchanged each day, as many as three-quarters include intellectual property such as business models, product designs, customer and employee data, supplier agreements and pricing strategies.
