In computer security, a Denial-of-Service attack (DoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Typically the targets are high-profile web servers where the attack is aiming to cause the hosted web pages to be unavailable on the Internet. It is a computer crime that violates the Internet proper use policy as indicated by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB).

Today's confidentiality and privacy requirements drive organizations of all sizes and industries to secure sensitive data in email. Often particular types of data need to be encrypted, such as credit card numbers, intellectual property, or client information. Organizations also need to protect confidential emails for particular groups, such as executive management, human resources or legal departments.
Many organizations are turning to policy-based encryption to meet their encryption needs because it automatically encrypts data using content filtering rules that identify types of content or email for particular groups. Encryption is applied when the rules are triggered. With policy-based encryption, organizations avoid relying on individual users to secure important content.

According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.
