Google simplifies the business of email security and message discovery

London, UK (February 5, 2008) Google Inc. today announced a series of security products Powered by Postini™ that deliver message filtering, encryption and archiving for any business environment. Google’s new security services work with any mail system, including Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, and Novell Groupwise, and with pricing starting at £1.50 per user per year can accommodate the budget of any business. Customers can sign up online and immediately begin to improve the security of their email.

“As threats rise in volume and complexity, and compliance requirements pile up, IT is struggling to find the resources to keep up,” said Scott Petry, director of product management, Google. “Now, Postini™ services offered by Google can take care of this for you. Organisations of all shapes and sizes can now get access to Google’s industry leading security and compliance technologies.”

Companies of all sizes are seeking solutions to the challenge of security and compliance. For instance, outbound message filtering helps prevent sensitive data from going outside the company firewall, which could result in identity theft or compromise a client’s personal information. Also, increasing industry regulations are creating demand for better message storage, with quick and easy retrieval.

Businesses can choose the Google security and compliance services that best suit their needs:

Google Message Filtering™

Google Message Security™

Google Message Discovery™

The new packages are part of the Google Apps platform and are available immediately at www.google.com/a/security, direct from Google, and through channel partners, and can be deployed within hours.

Policy management and 90-day message discovery services are also available at no additional charge to Google Apps Premier Edition users.
