PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2008) - The Radicati Group, Inc.'s latest study, "E-mail Security Market, 2008-2012," offers an in-depth analysis of the market for E-mail Security. It provides market size, installed base and revenue market share by vendor, four-year forecasts, and more.

Organizations poorly protected against e-mail threats pay a high price, losing millions of dollars in IT costs, productivity costs, network downtime, bandwidth costs, and more. Over the next four years these costs will only go up, as the volume of corporate e-mail messages exchanged is projected to increase from 156 per user/day in 2008, to 233 per user/day in 2012.

The study looks at the e-mail security market as comprising three segments: E-mail Security Software, E-mail Security Appliances, and Hosted E-mail Security Services. E-mail security software is the largest segment of the e-mail security market. However, today, appliances are the fastest growing segment. Over the next four years we expect the appliances segment to grow at over 50% annually.

In the report, The Radicati Group forecasts that the e-mail security market is expected to grow from $3.9 billion in 2008, to over $6.2 billion in 2012.
