Replacing Postini: Should You Replace Postini with Google Apps, or Replace with an Alternative Email Security Solution? (Video)
As you've probably already heard, Google is actively moving customers of its Postini email security and archiving solutions to Google Apps. This is essentially forcing organizations to replace Postini with either Google Apps or an alternative Postini replacement.
The options and implications can be confusing, so our VP of product marketing, Kevin Epstein, put together a great overview of what is happening with Postini, potential issues to be aware of when transitioning from Postini to Google Apps, and the types of benefits that enterprises could reap if they replaced Postini with an alternative email security solution.
Check it out here:
There are several resources mentioned by Kevin in that video, and I've provided handy links to them, below:
