Today, viruses are easily created by people with little or no programming experience. Since mail servers are particularly vulnerable to viruses, you should use antivirus software to scan messages before they reach your mail servers.

Our E-mail Antivirus Applications Pack includes three tools, described in detail below, that will help you decide which e-mail antivirus application will meet your organization’s needs, choose the right e-mail antivirus vendor, and check vendors’ references.

The Gap Analysis: E-mail Antivirus Applications tool’s three detailed worksheets (Requirements, Gap Report, and Solution Benefits) will help you determine whether a gap exists between your current system’s e-mail antivirus application capabilities and your organization’s future requirements. If you establish that a gap exists, our tool will also help you determine if an e-mail antivirus application can help you close those gaps.

The Vendor Selection Checklist: E-mail Antivirus Applications tool’s detailed worksheets (Criteria Ranking, Vendor, and Comparison) will help you assess the e-mail antivirus products and services available from various vendors so that your determination is based on the facts and issues most applicable to your organization’s needs.

The Vendor Reference Questionnaire: E-mail Antivirus Applications tool allows you to record important contact and demographic information on up to six separate references. Find out how each reference rates the vendor(s) on 10 critical, technology-specific questions. When you’ve completed the data from all the references you’re contacting, the tool will pull the information into the Comparison worksheet for a side-by-side look at how their vendor ratings stack up.
