Spam Warrior, $625 Mil: Google Enterprise, Priceless.

Vote 0 Votes

In light of Google's buy yesterday of Postini for $625 million cash-money, I direct you to a VERY interesting piece in the Washington Post, which basically hails this as part a new strategy by Google Enterprise to target the financial firms which have great compliance pressures and therefore must have extraordinarily reliable security infrastructure. It also continues to keep Google in the game in its competition with Microsoft Office.

The article, by Kendra Matt, is here.

More discussion of the Google/Microsoft battle can also be found in this Businessweek.com article.

Also, Peter Schooff, ebizQ's fearless security editor, did a great podcast with Postini about the dangers of Web 2.0 and what the company was doing to fight spam. I direct you to that informative podcast here.

ebizQ’s expert blog team covers a broad range of BPM, business integration, business analytics/monitoring, collaboration, content and related issues.
