Google adds outbound email security features

Since they bought Postini recently, Google hasn’t wasted any time adding their email security features to Google Apps (even if it’s only on the “Premier Edition” so far).

The press release from Google says the new features will “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.”

I had a dig around the Google page linked to from the press release, and the Postini pages it directed me too, and couldn’t find anything too specific about the outbound email filtering it mentioned, but it’s encouraging for those of us at the ILP coalface that the behemoth of Google is recognising the need for ILP tools. Will be interested to see how it works…
