  • Now expanding to more horizontal marketplace.
  • Messaging compliance (for financial services) has historically been main part of the business. Now broadening offering, as follows:
    • Data Loss Prevention. Goal is 40% of revenues in calendar 2008.
    • Messaging Compliance. Goal is 40% of revenues in calendar 2008.
    • Information Classification. Goal is 20% of revenues in calendar 2008.
  • Overall positioning statement: "Information protection and control."
  • Financials:
    • Calendar 2007 revenues $27 million; 66% up on 2006.
    • Healthy growth expected for calendar 2008--goal is $40 million to $45 million in revenues.
    • Excess cash being reinvested to support growth, hence generally breakeven profitability.
  • Main competition:
    • Data Loss Prevention. Symantec/Vontu, Reconnex, Vericept.
    • Messaging Compliance. Not a lot so far within the financial services niche.
    • Information Classification. Nascent and confused market, clear competition not gelled yet.

Cost-Effective Alternatives to Exchange
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
10:00am Pacific, 1:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm UK, 7:00pm CET. One hour.

Microsoft Exchange is the dominant messaging and collaboration server for in-house organizational use. However, some organizations are seeking alternatives to Exchange--perhaps because they are cost-sensitive, have a Linux strategy, or need to deploy larger mailboxes. In this webinar, Ferris analyst Richi Jennings and Sina Miri of PostPath map the landscape for Exchange alternatives. The webinar concludes with a Q&A period.
