Marshal Attacks Spam

Marshal announces a successful first year of independent operation following its December 2005 management buy-out from NetIQ

ATLANTA -- Integrated email and Internet content security provider Marshal Inc. announces a successful first year of independent operation following its December 2005 management buy-out from NetIQ. The growth in Marshal’s customer base – from 17,000 to 18,000 – has been fuelled in part by an ability to combat this year’s unprecedented levels of global spam and phishing, increases in targeted attacks on financial institutions and high profile examples of employees abusing corporate communications networks.

Ed Macnair, CEO of Marshal, notes: “Given the number of instances in which employee email or Internet misuse opens an entire organization to risk of liability and damages to brand equity, reputation and standing in the community, IT security managers can no longer just protect the network perimeter from external threats. Today’s enterprises require intuitive, intelligent content filtering technology to combat the constant tide of new threats at the email or Web gateway, before they enter mainstream circulation.”
