FrontBridge believes that the email hygiene market is maturing and that message management has been elevated from an IT issue to a board level issue. Point solutions for spam, anti-virus, content filtering, directory management and messaging archiving, requiring multi-vendor management no longer work. They are too costly and difficult for enterprises to manage.
More than 75 per cent of a company's intellectual property resides in its email and in a recent META Group survey, 80 per cent of business believed that email is more important than the telephone. The always-on managed service from FrontBridge, will elevate email to the same reliable status as that of the telephone.
FrontBridge predicts that the market will see consolidation in the next six months as vendors scramble to develop an integrated solution as more and more companies begin to look for a one solution vendor. Against this backdrop, FrontBridge is recently rolled out its Total Message Management strategy in Europe including spam and virus filtering, content and policy enforcement, encrypted email, message archiving and disaster recovery.
Craig Whitney, director EMEA, FrontBridge will be available to discuss the new disaster recovery service, including the industry consolidation and the requirement for FrontBridge's Total Message Management strategy on 23 February/3 March.
