E-mail and Instant Messaging (IM) are playing more important roles in today’s enterprise. Many employees are now using Instant Messaging and E-mail system as their main communication medium because it’s easier, faster and more convenient.
Trying to send a document to someone through traditional mail can take days, but attaching the document to an e-mail message takes only few seconds. If you are trying to find out if your friend is available for lunch, but he is on a conference call, phoning and leaving a VM won’t really help. You won’t get a reply until he is finished with his conference call. But if you send him an IM, he’ll probably reply to you within minutes, maybe even seconds.
As the popularity of these two technologies grow, messaging administrators are worrying about their vulnerability to security threats. As a result, they overload their servers with a variety of antivirus, anti-spam, content filtering and backup applications. Then they spend all day trying to manage them, while trying not to forget about one of them.
But help is on the way! Symantec has a solution that can make any Messaging Administrator’s life easier.
