Whitepaper: Should You Install Messaging Security Software on Your Exchange Server?

by Sunbelt SoftwareJan 01, 2010

Installing messaging security software directly on to your Exchange Server has been of source of contention for years. Many professionals are averse to this practice, thus allowing gaping holes in message security. This free guide debunks the myths surrounding installation of third-party software on the hardware that runs Exchange Server. Explore this myth and see how the practice can help fortify your security strategy.

This white paper discusses the detailed results of an Osterman Research survey on messaging security software and conclusions about administrators� attitudes regarding installing third-party software on the Exchange Server.


Whitepaper: The Economics of Spam

by Sunbelt SoftwareJan 01, 2010

The volume of spam emails sent has increased exponentially during recent years, and so has the cost of dealing with that spam. While awareness of the problem has certainly increased, many companies still do not realize the significant impact which spam is having on their profits. Similarly, many do not realize that not all antispam solutions are created equal and that choosing the wrong solution can significantly diminish return on investment.

This paper will examine the ways in which spam can impact profits and outline the criteria that every company should consider when choosing its antispam solution.


Whitepaper: Enhancing Your SQL Reporting Services Deployment

Whitepaper: Data Protection Strategies Using Replication

by Sunbelt SoftwareSep 18, 2009

Businesses are becoming increasingly dependent on continuous access to stored data and as a result, storage usage is growing at an unprecedented rate. As the number of mission-critical servers and storage resources grow, so does the importance of protecting against service interruptions that can threaten an organization's ability to provide access to key data.

There are a number of strategies that can be employed to protect important data, and each has strengths and weaknesses. This paper examines four data protection strategies and compares their merits for the most common business continuance scenarios including providing high availability, effective disaster recovery, enhancing backup and restore, and data migration projects. Use this paper to help define the best data-protection strategy using replication.


Whitepaper: Protecting Email: Comparison of Leading Email Management Systems

by Sunbelt SoftwareJul 30, 2009

For today's organizations, email is absolutely critical to the health and efficiency of business-critical applications. Proper management and protection from the growing array of threats that impact it is an increasingly vital initiative. Systems designed to protect email systems and users from spam, viruses, malware, phishing attacks and other threats must be extremely effective. They must operate with virtually no downtime and they must be easy to manage. This Osterman Research white paper presents the results of a survey to organizations that are using five different email management systems including: Barracuda Spam Firewall, GFI MailEssentials, McAfee GroupShield for Microsoft Exchange, and Symantec Brightmail and Sunbelt�s VIPRE Email Security for Exchange.


Whitepaper: A Guide to Understanding Messaging Archiving

by Sunbelt SoftwareMar 20, 2009


Email archiving is rapidly becoming a critical best practice for organizations of all sizes and across all industries for two fundamental reasons:
- Because e-discovery and regulatory obligations require organizations to access their business records
- Because of the significant volume of email stored on servers, coupled with increasing use of email and growing attachment sizes, email storage is becoming very difficult to manage.

Osterman Research conducted a primary survey asking organizations about a variety of archiving systems. The purpose of this research was simply to understand the level of satisfaction that customers of Sunbelt Exchange Archiver (SEA) and other email archiving offerings report on a variety of metrics related to product and vendor performance. Among the offerings to which the SEA offering are compared in this white paper are Symantec Enterprise Vault, Autonomy ZANTAZ EAS, Barracuda Message Archiver, EMC EmailXtender and a wide variety of other leading -- and very capable -- email archiving solutions.

The goal of this white paper is to provide a point of comparison between SEA and other offerings in order to help decision makers in their archiving system evaluation process. Consider the following:

      • 24% of companies have experienced their employees' email being subpoenaed and 15% have gone to court because of lawsuits brought on by their employees' email
      • In September 2007, Morgan Stanley were required to pay $9.5 million to two sets of customers that made claims against the company, and $3 million for not providing email and supervisory content
      • Email storage is growing at an average rate of 35% annually - three out of five decision makers cite the growth of messaging storage as their leading messaging-related problem

Messaging archiving can help solve all of these problems and can satisfy a wide range of legal compliance and other problems as well.

This Osterman Research white paper discusses the several reasons to implement a messaging archiving system and highlights different archiving solutions.

Whitepaper: When Less is More: Why Small Companies Should Think Outside the (Red/Yellow) Box for Protecting Endpoints

by Sunbelt SoftwareMar 17, 2009

Endpoint security issues simply can't be ignored, regardless of the size of the organization. Small enterprises in particular often need to "do more with less" when it comes to protecting their endpoints from Internet-based threats and vulnerabilities. In this research paper, Aberdeen Group explores the selection criteria for endpoint security solutions that are valued most highly by small companies. Learn why organizations with up to 1,000 users should make an explicit decision about selecting the best endpoint security solution for their current problems, rather than unnecessarily taking on by default the potential complexities, higher costs, or negative performance impact of anti-malware solutions from better-known providers such as McAfee and Symantec.


Whitepaper: Messaging and Web Threats Security Strategy Revealed

by Sunbelt SoftwareFeb 11, 2009

Messaging, internal and Web-based threats are increasing in number and severity. Because the profit motive now drives spammers, hackers and other purveyors of malicious content, as well as the development of more sophisticated techniques to circumvent corporate defenses, organizations must continue to improve their defenses. Plus, organizations must protect against internal users from sending confidential content out of the organization through a variety of communication tools, whether this activity is intentional or accidental. The risks to organizations large and small are not theoretical � there are real problems that users and their employers face if they do not establish adequate defenses against the growing variety of malware, exploits and other threats that are directed against them. Organizations must deploy defenses at all of the physical venues at which threats may enter a network or through which users may intentionally or inadvertently send sensitive content; and they must implement a layered defensive strategy to protect against all types of threats. Read this Osterman Research paper to learn how organizations must implement a layered defensive strategy to protect against all types of threats and how Sunbelt Software can help.
