Share this article:

Throughout the day, SC Magazine will be announcing the finalists from each of its 32 award categories, covering the Reader Trust, Professional and Excellence sections. 

Best Email Content Management

These products may filter email messages based on content, source or other criteria. Direction of flow may be either to the organization, from the organization or both. These products are enterprise-centric and should have, but are not required to have, some form of centralized management. They may include spam filters, junk mail filters, malware filters, unauthorized content (sometimes called “extrusion protection” or “data leakage protection”), phishing and other types of undesirable content. However, these are not simply anti-spam filters. 

Finalists

  • Cisco Systems, Inc. for Cisco IronPort Email Security
  • Fortinet Inc for FortiMail-100C
  • Proofpoint, Inc. for Proofpoint Enterprise Protection / Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy
  • Symantec Corporation for Symantec Messaging Gateway 9.5
  • Websense, Inc. for Websense Email Security Gateway Anywhere

Best Email Security

Email security addresses the ability to exchange email messages securely. This includes ensuring the privacy of sensitive messages, limiting the repercussions of email forgery, and managing other aspects of email security within the organization. These email security products should be evaluated on their effectiveness, manageability, non-intrusiveness, ease of use, and other factors that impact the implementation of this type of product in the enterprise environment. They typically provide features such as email encryption, digital signatures, automatic shredding of messages and attachments, etc., and more.

Please note: These products are not email content management solutions that may filter email messages based on content, source or other criteria. That category and its requirements are noted next.

Finalists

  • Cisco Systems, Inc. for Cisco Business Class Email
  • GFI Software for GFI MailEssentials Complete
  • McAfee for McAfee Email Protection
  • SonicWALL, Inc for SonicWALL Email Security Appliance 8300
