Google Adds Postini to Apps

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) today announced that Postini's email security and compliance services have been added to Google Apps Premier Edition. Google acquired Postini last month to help companies realize the benefits of hosted applications while also addressing complex information security and compliance requirements.

With Postini, we saw the potential to deliver a more complete hosted solution for businesses of all sizes,” said Dave Girouard, vice president and general manager of Google Enterprise. “We are quickly adding Postini's market-leading security and compliance capabilities to Google Apps Premier Edition to give businesses more control over the administration and security of these applications.”

The new security, compliance, policy management, and message recovery services added to Google Apps Premier Edition give customers the ability to:

  • Set configurable spam and virus filtering that are customized for the nature of the business, complementing the spam and virus filters already included in Google Apps.
  • Centrally manage all outbound content policy, including adding footers to every message based on business policy rules, blocking messages with specific keywords or attachments, and preventing emails with sensitive company information from being sent.
