Radicati: Strong Growth in the Hosted Email Market Fueled by Concerns over Security
The Radicati Group, Inc.’s latest study, “Hosted Email, 2005-2009,” provides an in-depth look at all segments of the hosted email market, including: Hosted Business Email Providers, Managed Business Email Providers, ISP/Webmail Providers, and Mobile Phone Email Providers.
According to the study, while 64% of “hosted business email” accounts are currently small business customers (1-100 employees), a greater percentage of medium and large businesses are investigating and deploying hosted email solutions.
Faced with growing messaging complexity and rising costs, the lucrative “mid-market” of 500 to 5,000 employee organizations represents a key opportunity for hosted email providers. These customers are often frustrated with managing security concerns on their own, as well as responding to growing requirements for email archiving and regulatory compliance.
The Radicati Group covers all aspects of security, email archiving, regulatory
compliance, wireless technologies, web services, identity management, instant messaging, unified communications, VoIP, and more. The company provides both quantitative and qualitative information, including detailed market size, installed base and forecast information on a worldwide basis, as well as detailed country breakouts.
