Our President and COO, Glen Vondrick, who has been in the messaging market for years, wrote an excellent article published in Messaging News on whether email policy should be self governed or centrally enforced.
In the article Vondrick sets the stage about how corporate email is the backbone of business communications and if it goes down productivity of the workforce plummets and how there is a greater outcry than when any other “utility” becomes unavailable. He argues that in the enterprise email has become more reliable and trusted than the telephone or any other human collaboration tool. He suggests however that if it is not properly secured, it can also pose a great risk.
He then poses the question:
“So why is it that so many large organizations have not implemented reliable email use and enforcement policies to govern security and compliance risks, data leak protection, messages accidentally sent by mistake, or even best practices for communication and systems efficiency? Is it the lack of available and trusted technology, human apathy, or a little of both that prevents most organizations from doing more about it?”
