Choosing the Right Email Security Deployment

  • Cisco Systems
Today's email-borne threats consist of viruses, spam, false positives, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, spyware, phishing (fraud), regulatory compliance violations, data loss and more. Cisco IronPort Email Security addresses the issues faced by corporations, both large and small, by incorporating preventive and reactive security measures that are easy to deploy and manage.

While email threats continue to grow and evolve, organizations are demanding more from their IT teams - more protection, more efficiency and more flexibility. To meet these demands, IT teams need more flexibility to architect solutions that address these business imperatives. Flexibility provides choice in deployment options for email security and falls under three board categories. First, there are customers that want to improve operational efficiency by outsourcing the problem of spam through the use of hosted or software as a service (SaaS) solutions. The second includes customers that want to maintain maximum control of sensitive outbound information through the deployment of on-premises email security infrastructure. The third category encompasses customers that want to use a hybrid (or divided) approach - which includes use of hosted solutions for efficiency while still maintaining the benefits of an on-premises appliance-based deployment.

As email becomes the primary method of both inter-company and intra-company information exchange, the security of your email infrastructure becomes an item of paramount importance whether you're complying with regulations or simply following good common sense.

This is an excellent paper that looks at various approaches to issues such as anti-spam, email tracking, service uptime, and data contamination from a number of different approaches, including cloud-based services.

The paper does concentrate on Cisco's offerings, but the information is a great benchmark regardless of your exact choice of supplier(s).
