Mailprotector Targets Security Innovation in Email
Mailprotector, a cloud-based email security firm, has announced that it is betting its future on innovation around securing email as a core business communication system.
David Setzer, founder and chief executive of Mailprotector, said: "Email is one of the most ubiquitous technologies on the planet, and from what we are seeing, that is not going to change any time soon."
Mr Setzer has predicted that there will be significantly more innovation around securing email in the next five years than there has been in the market for the past 20 years, but he believes that this innovation is unlikely to come from the larger companies.
Mailprotector is set to capitalise on this growth by using its 12 years of experience and expertise to focus on email security alone, placing the company at the head of its industry.
Speaking to Computer Weekly, Mr Setzer explained: “Mailprotector is in a unique position to deliver the required innovation because email security is at the core of everything we do.”
The CEO has also confirmed that the company is focusing on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that often lack in-house expertise that is required to run a secure email server.
This emphasis on the importance of email was highlighted by The Radicati Group's Email Market Report (2014-2018), which suggested that the market is continuing to grow in both users and revenue.
According to the report, there are over 2.5 billion email users worldwide, and this number is expected to grow to over 2.8 billion by the end of 2018.
