What to Ask When Evaluating Messaging Security Systems
Source: Osterman Research
Email is the most important communications channel for most users and organizations. However, threats directed against email are growing in number, sophistication and severity. It is critical, therefore, to deploy a messaging security infrastructure that can protect an organization from these threats. When evaluating competing solutions, there are a number of considerations that should be taken into account, including the efficiency of the system in capturing spam, viruses and other threats; whether or not the solution can support carrier-class throughput; the ease with which the system can be managed; the specific filtering technologies used; its total cost of ownership; and other factors.
