Spam Control Products Survey

Despite recent industry consolidation, many spam control vendors are still at large. It's hard to tell who's in the lead.

You can see what products people are evaluating here--see comments here. If you add your own data, we will send you a summary of the findings. Please either post your response as a comment, or if you need anonymity, email it to survey@ferris.com and we’ll post your response without identifying you or your organization.

Please use your business email address in the comment form or if you email us your answers (we don't accept personal email addresses, to discourage fake responses generated to promote a particular vendor).

Many thanks -- David Ferris and Richi Jennings

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
