Compliance and Policy Management Tools Are a Must, Not an Option

A New Study by the Radicati Group, Inc. Shows That Compliance and Policy Management Tools Are Becoming a Vital Addition to E-Mail Management Suites of Many Companies

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 13, 2005 -- The latest study by the Radicati Group, Inc. "Compliance and Policy Management Market 2005 - 2009" provides market size, four-year forecasts, legislative and competitive information for the Compliance and Policy Management market.

Over the past few years companies in select industries, including financial, insurance and healthcare have had to change the way their electronic messages are managed and preserved, to comply with a growing number of regulations (SEC 17a-4, HIPAA, NASD 3010, etc.). Moreover, with the introduction of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, covering all publicly traded companies, regulatory compliance is no longer a problem of select industries.

Besides regulatory compliance, compliance solutions also address the issue of internal policy compliance, to help prevent sensitive information leakage, stop usage of inappropriate language, and ensure that appropriate disclaimers are included with all transactions.

The compliance market today is shared by anti-spam, e-mail archiving, IM management vendors and pure-play vendors. The market for these solutions is expected to top $369 million in 2005, and reach over $1,250 million by 2009.
