Google claims that the suite of online security applications are designed to offer businesses of all sizes message filtering, encryption and archiving which is compatible with Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange and Novel GroupWise mail servers.

Google Message Filtering is the basic service and tackles spam, viruses and email threats at a cost of £1.50 per user, per year. Google Message Security, which also includes message filtering capabilities, is priced at £6 per user, per year.

The top tier package, which includes both Message Filtering and Message Security, is Google Message Discovery. It beefs up protection further to offer one year of message data archiving and retention for £12.50 per user, per year.


“[With these products], smaller businesses are getting the same service and level of performance that the largest banks also receive – they’re not getting second-rate service because they are small,” say Peter Lorant, head of enterprise partners for Google, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

“One of the key benefits of having security hosted in the cloud computing model is you benefit from the networked effect. [When something is detected] everyone benefits instantly, which is a very compelling reason for adopting the hosted model,” adds Dave Armstrong, product marketing manager at Google Enterprise.
