Outbound content compliance will generate $1.9 bln by 2009

Although organizations have traditionally focused security efforts on external threats posed by the explosive growth of viruses, spam, spyware, and blended threats, there is an emerging threat to corporate security that comes from inside the organization. According toIDC, the detection and prevention of outbound content that violates corporate policy and government and industry regulations is critical. This new security market segment, which IDC has termed outbound content compliance (OCC), will swell to $1.9 bln in 2009.
