IBM email security: Simple and integrated

As new threats emerge and legal/regulatory requirements evolve, the need for a comprehensive security solution supporting messaging continues to increase. The explosion of email as a content container has changed the way enterprises manage the growing corpus of data - in motion and at rest - represented by users' mailboxes.

Until now, new security threats have been addressed with new solutions from new vendors. Over time this approach can create a fragmented and disconnected messaging security infrastructure that is difficult to purchase, integrate and maintain. What customers need is an integrated approach, one that helps reduce the complexity of messaging security.

Discover IBM Lotus Protector, a line of security offerings to complement customer investments in Lotus Domino software.
