As a managed service, Integrated Message Management from Postini enables IT departments to deliver the business benefits of email and IM as communication tools without the associated costs, risks and complexities of in-house software or appliance products.
Accurate, Effective Email and IM Threat Prevention - Keeping up with rapidly evolving email and instant messaging threats such as spam, viruses, and IM worms requires expertise and experience most organizations don't possess in-house. By choosing Postini's managed service, organizations gain a proven, preventive message security solution that eliminates spam and viruses, blocks phishing attempts, stops IM worms, and prevents email attacks from harming your network.
Reduced Risk & Complexity - The risk of failure grows with complexity. Purchasing anti-spam appliance/software products can lock customers into a solution that may or may not evolve to meet their needs. Once committed, customers must live with flaws or limitations since switching costs can be prohibitive. Postini's managed service operates outside the network, at the email boundary, and is compatible with any type of email environment. It is easy to activate and easy to use for both administrators and end users.
Faster Time to Value - Deployment of appliance/software products can suffer from unanticipated impacts and additional costs that disrupt critical email operations and business activity. Few organizations can afford to wait weeks or even months for an effective email security solution. Postini's managed service can be activated in a matter of minutes. Our customers consistently remark on the dramatic reduction of junk email and IM threats as soon as the service is "turned on."
Lower Total Cost of Ownership - As a managed service, Postini eliminates the internal administrative burden on your IT staff. There is no hardware or software to install, and no maintenance or updates to worry about. Choosing Postini frees your IT staff from time-consuming email administration and enables them to concentrate on tasks that help grow your businesses.
