Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Google ha reso noto di aver arricchito le ben note Google Apps con l'introduzione di nuovi applicativi in grado di offrire sia all'utenza consumer che a quella business un set di prodotti/servizi orientati alla sicurezza.
Utilizzando la tecnologia di Postini, azienda recentemente acquisita dal gigante di Internet, Google può ora offrire funzionalità di message filtering (antispam in primis), encryption e archiving, compatibili con i più diffusi mail system, come Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange e Novell Groupwise, e raggruppati nelle offerte Google Message Filtering, Google Message Security e Google Message Discovery. Il prezzo varia da un minimo di $3 per utente a un massimo di $25 per utente.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (February 5, 2008) – Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) 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 $3 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, Google can take care of this for you. Organizations of all shapes and sizes can 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.
