Today's confidentiality and privacy requirements drive organizations of all sizes and industries to secure sensitive data in email. Often particular types of data need to be encrypted, such as credit card numbers, intellectual property, or client information. Organizations also need to protect confidential emails for particular groups, such as executive management, human resources or legal departments.
Many organizations are turning to policy-based encryption to meet their encryption needs because it automatically encrypts data using content filtering rules that identify types of content or email for particular groups. Encryption is applied when the rules are triggered. With policy-based encryption, organizations avoid relying on individual users to secure important content.

Hosted, or "in-the-cloud", messaging security capabilities are becoming increasingly
popular with organizations of all sizes. Some have already adopted hosted services, while
others are becoming more receptive to the notion of using third party services to manage
their security infrastructure than they were just a year ago. Particularly driven by the
current economic recession, decision makers are realizing that hosted email security can
provide a cost-effective solution while actually improving security.
All businesses face a daily bombardment of email spam that consumes valuable IT staff

tightening world economy, coupled with the uncertainty of any near-term recovery, small
and medium-sized business (SMB) managers are searching for ways to cut costs while
continuing to maintain a consistent level of service and protection for their businesses.

Securing your email is a complex process that takes time and uses resources that can be better deployed elsewhere in your business. Moving on-premise email security into the cloud not only saves time and money, but also reduces risk and takes advantages of economies of scale to deliver an effective, dedicated security platform that unshackles users and releases the potential of your mail.

Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
• Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
• More comprehensive signature and URL database
• Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location

DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
