Email / Web Security in the Cloud: More Secure! Less Expensive!

Presented by

Derek E. Brink, Vice President & Research Fellow, IT Security, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

Drawing on the findings from multiple benchmark studies on best practices in content security and security software as a service, Aberdeen’s analysis shows that users of cloud-based email security had substantially better results than users of on-premise email security implementations in the critical areas of security, compliance, reliability and cost. Compared to companies using on premise email security solutions, users of cloud-based email security solutions had 47% fewer incidents of spam / malware, 65% fewer audit deficiencies, 50% less security-related downtime, and 11% lower total cost per end-user per year for email security. Results for web security in the cloud were simlar.
