Email is the lingua franca of business today. It is the conduit that allows employees to share information, companies to work with partners, and increasingly, provides a way for companies and their customers to interact. Enterprises today deal with an ever-increasing number of email-related threats. Most are familiar with the problems of virus-infected email attachments and productivity draining spam, but now companies must also address the threats posted by outbound email.

•New state, federal, and industry regulations are placing additional burdens on IT staffs when it comes to ensuring the protection of private and confidential information
•Companies face increased exposure to fines, penalties, and litigation due to employees unintentionally or maliciously sending information out of the company via email
•Outbound mail must now be checked; however the task is increasingly difficult as employees use personal Web-based email and their own freely downloaded encryption
•IT departments need a way to automate the detection and protect of confidential and private outgoing information
•Solutions must include easy to use, policy-based encryption to make it simple to securely communicate with customers and partners
