Sender Authentication, Jan 17
Emerging Messaging Technologies, Feb 21
Email Disaster Recovery, Mar 21

Ferris Research is soliciting speakers for the following webinars:

  • Sender Authentication, Jan 17. Sender authentication (or authorization) allows domain owners to publish information to help expose forged messages. It authenticates mail that legitimately comes from that domain. Industry leaders and messaging managers comment on the use of sender authentication. Topics include what the various authentication schemes are, how they work, their history, their future, how they assist with reputation services, how to choose which to use; how to implement on the sender side.
  • Emerging Messaging Technologies, Feb 21. Short presentations from interesting new firms with promising and innovative technology. Industry leaders and messaging managers comment on the technologies that have the greatest potential.
  • Email Disaster Recovery, Mar 21. Solutions are now becoming available to keep email going in the event of disasters, such as fires and earthquakes. We discuss the main product/service offerings and how the technology is evolving.

Speakers talk for five to 10 minutes on the topic and are joined by three or four other speakers. Attendees are IT staff supporting email technologies, consultants, vendor product managers, and investors.

The webinars start at 8:30 a.m. PST and last one hour. We typically have at least 500 registrants and around 200 actual attendees, so it's good exposure. Participating vendors also have the opportunity to use the events as lead generators by promoting the event to prospective customers.

In return, we'll give you a six-month subscription to our for-fee news service, which provides comprehensive coverage of messaging and collaboration technology. It's an extremely quick way to keep current with the news, and is normally only available to organizations that subscribe to our full information service. See a sample here.
