Outbound Email And Data Loss Prevention In Today's Enterprise, 2009
sponsored by Proofpoint, Inc.

How concerned are companies about the content of email leaving their organizations? And how do companies manage the legal and financial risks associated with outbound email? To find out, Proofpoint and Osterman Research conducted an online survey of technology decision makers at 220 large US companies during June 2009.

This report summarizes the findings of Proofpoint's sixth-annual email security and data loss prevention study, including surprising statistics about how large companies manage the risks associated with outbound email, blog postings, media sharing sites, social networking sites, mobile Internet-connected devices and other electronic communications streams.

New topics in this year's survey include data risks related to short message services such as Twitter and a look at how the global economic recession is affecting data security.
