The Total Cost of Ownership For Mail Server Security
This research study discusses the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the top four Microsoft Exchange mail server security solutions.
"Today, anywhere from 87% to 95% of all email is spam and approximately one out of every 160 emails contains a virus. That means that an organization with an average email volume of 100,000 messages per day, can expect to receive up to 95,000 spam messages and 625 virus-laden messages every day. As a result, robust anti-spam, antivirus and other malware defenses are absolutely critical to the health of any organization’s email infrastructure. These defenses must be continually updated, they must be easy to use and – given that they are a necessary component of any organization’s defense system – they should cost as little as possible to deploy and manage.
This report discusses a research program comparing four leading mail server security solutions designed for Microsoft Exchange environments. The four solutions – from Trend Micro, Symantec, Microsoft and McAfee – were cited as among the most commonly considered solutions in a separate research project undertaken by Osterman Research earlier in 2007."
