Messaging in the SMB Market, 2005-2008

has just published Messaging in the SMB Market, 2005-2008, a new multiclient study.  This report focuses on the North American small-to-mid-size business (SMB)  market, which for the purposes of this report is defined as organizations of  between 20 and 1,500 employees.  The goal of this report is to assist vendors and  others to increase their understanding of market developments in the SMB  messaging space and to help them gain insight into key trends that will shape  this market for the next several years.

Some key points in the report state that:

  • The most serious messaging management problems reported by SMBs are  adware/spyware, spam and the growth in messaging storage. 
  • Anti-virus and anti-spam capabilities are more widely deployed at the server  and gateway level within enterprises, and more widely deployed at the  desktop within SMBs.
  • Two-thirds of SMBs currently operate an email security infrastructure that  consists of point, best-of-breed security solutions.  However, most SMBs would  prefer a unified email security infrastructure rather than operate a series of  point solutions.
