Google Apps for Business Get Security Enhancement

Google announced a series of security products today that are based on technology from their acquisition of Postini (Postini, Inc. is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Google Inc.)

The security suite is part of "Google Apps" which now offers Message Filtering, Message Security and Message Discovery services to business, schools and non-profit organizations. Prices range from $3 per user per year to $25 per user per year.

Of course, Neowin users are probably more interested to know if any of this newly enhanced spam protection from Postini will be integrated into Gmail.

My ISP has been using Postini for a few years now. They're reasonably good at what they do -- although there is definitely room for improvement!

And BTW: at least they're not calling it Googlini!

Google Apps lol

And product names are very bad...Google message filtering, google message security, google message discovery!!
Its like Microsoft branding its Live products like Windows Live messenger, windows live spaces (except xbox, zune)

I will give 100 to Apple for the product names!...(but now even the 'i' branding is too much..Macbook Air stopped it, i thought it would be iBook :-)

Wait....isnt spam filtering a free service? (i get the junk mail block updates in outlook & windows mail)...

There are different levels of filtering services...some are much more thorough than others and better at catching the really sneaky ones

While it would be nice if all the spam filtering is free, I can see why they might want to charge considering server side spam filtering can use a fair bit of processing power particularly if you get a lot of email

I just can't resist posting and then editing later. I did manage to figure out how to do the "extended" news feature though (it has changed since the olden days). This just means that more information is available once you click the article and get to this page.

Please let there be no typos. Once again, this is an original production and not just a quick cut and paste job.
