Should You Install Messaging Security Software on Your Exchange Server?

Osterman Research conducted a survey for Sunbelt Software to determine attitudes toward installing security software directly on servers that run Microsoft Exchange Server. Because many IT decision makers have an aversion to installing any third-party software directly on the hardware that runs Exchange Server, they wanted to determine how strong this aversion might be, as well as the potential for addressing the concerns that lead to many decision makers’ reluctance to install any third-party software on Exchange Server.

There are three primary benefits associated with installed messaging security software on the same hardware as Exchange Server:

  • Lowers labor costs
  • Lowers hardware costs
  • Provides better protection

In short, organizations that choose to install the right messaging security software directly on an Exchange
Server can reduce the cost and complexity of the messaging environment while providing robust defenses against a variety of threats.
