To Corporate Email Administrators
You may think that ZipMail for WebMails used with public Webmails like Google Gmail, MSN Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail is of no use for your corporate users.
The following lines are quoted from this Reconnex study:
“Most corporations today have a zero-tolerance policy for the use of Webmail and IM at work for two reasons. First, while the majority of corporations monitored email, few had the ability to monitor Webmail. Knowing this, many employees use Webmail to “sneak” information out of the enterprise. Second, Webmail sites often offer organizations no protection in case of data theft; and the “Terms of Service” disclaim all warranties for any losses related to data stored on these sites. The terminology used on some Webmail hosting sites may even give them the right to use any data uploaded by users. Thus when employees send any company confidential or sensitive documents via Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, Gmail or AOL, they are placing unencrypted confidential information at risk on public servers not hosted by their corporation. Often, they are placing the competitive advantage and intellectual property of their enterprise in serious jeopardy.”
“83 percent of companies evaluated in 2005 had people inside the corporation using Webmail to get information outside the corporate firewall.”
“Worse, at 28 percent of the companies assessed, employees were sending Webmails that included attachments—a leading indicator that sensitive information was being transferred out of the corporation.”
“Despite the severity of the risk, the motivation for breaking a company’s Webmail policy is often innocent. In 2005, Reconnex found corporations that set limits on the size of email attachments were unknowing encouraging employees to use Webmail to send out large attachments in an effort to get their jobs done.”
“83% of corporations monitored had the presence of Webmail against their internal use policies.”
