"With over 112 billion emails sent and received on a daily basis, email continues to be the dominant form of business communication. Organizations must formulate a strategy for not just storing email but meeting compliance requirements, responding to litigation requests and providing instant access to these important conservations. While this has traditionally been accomplished with on-premises technology, the cloud has transformed archiving by delivering new capabilities at lower costs.
Read the whitepaper for key takeaways:
- The emergence of email archiving as a business requirement
- The challenges associated with traditional on-premises solutions
- How the cloud has changed email archiving
- How organizations can benefit from it"
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.

Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.
