The Forrester Wave™: Email Filtering, Q2 2009

Symantec, Cisco Systems, And McAfee/Secure Computing Lead, With Google, Symantec/MessageLabs, And Microsoft Close Behind

    Why Read This Report

    In late 2008, Forrester conducted an in-depth evaluation of email security filtering, based on 57 criteria. Despite the flurry of recent market acquisitions, we found that this market is still characterized by strong appliance vendors with upstart cloud providers poised to win market shares in the long run. More specifically, we found that Symantec, Cisco Systems, and McAfee/Secure Computing lead the field because of their strong functionality and focused strategy. Google, Symantec/MessageLabs, Microsoft, and Websense are close behind with innovative cloud-based offerings. Trend Micro, Marshal8e6, and McAfee trail the field for the lack of data security and the breadth in functionality.
