This is a snippet from Network World ...
" ... The Google Message Filtering service for filtering out spam and e-mail-carried malware costs $3 per user per year. At $12 per user per year, Google Message Security includes Google Message Filtering and added elements such as content-policy management to check for compliance violations.
Google Message Discovery builds off Google Message Security and adds a year of message data archiving, retention and discovery; it costs $25 per user per year for one year of archived data.
"Formerly, this would have been about $100 per user," Petry says. In general, Google is lowering the entry price for its Postini security services from about $30 per user to $3, according to Petry.
Google acquired Postini last year for approximately $625 million. "
GCC is a long time Postini user and lover ... I was excited when Google bought Postini last year and this looks like some of the first fruits from the acquisition.
IT GETS EVEN BETTER! ... Non-profits get a 66% discount on the above pricing!!!
That means the entry filtering service is $1/user/year!!
$4.08/user/year for the middle level service
$8.50/user/year for the highest level service which includes email archival for a year.
We currently pay around $22/user/year for the middle level service for 135 mailboxes ... which I pay happily because Postini rocks. Now you're telling me I can save a bunch of money AND get message archiving to boot?? Pinch me someone :-)
Several of us are trying to get more info from Postini, you can read the response David got back here.
Hopefully we'll have more info to share during tomorrows podcast ... be there 2pm Eastern.
