Free Proofpoint Report on Outbound Email
Outbound Email and Content Security in Today's Enterprise, 2006
While a great deal is known about inbound message-borne threats — including spam and viruses — relatively little attention has been paid to the issue of outbound email content.
How concerned are companies about the content of email leaving their organizations? How do companies manage the legal and financial risks associated with outbound email? In May 2006, Proofpoint and Forrester Consulting (a division of leading analyst firm Forrester) conducted an online survey of technology decision makers at 294 large US companies and 112 large UK companies to find the answers to these questions.
This report summarizes the findings of the 2006 study, including surprising statistics about how large companies manage the risks associated with email sent from their organizations.
