Google Aquiring Postini

By Li Evans

Postinilogo Google released a press release this morning announcing that it is acquiring the "leader in on-demand communications security and compliance solutions", Postini based in San Carlos California. 

Postini describes themselves as:

"..the global leader in on-demand solutions that deliver on the promise of Communication Security and Compliance. With Postini, your company is protected against increasingly malicious internet-based attacks. Your compliance is ensured for government, industry, and internal mandates; and you can re-establish increased productivity for your users."

Google's reasoning for acquiring the company seems to lean towards more security for Google Apps, since they've received a "tremendous" response with "over 1,000 small businesses signing up for the service every day."

The Google blog even has a welcome post for the Postini team.  The Enterprise Team at Google also has a bit more of an explanation on their blog too.  And if that weren't enough, there's even an FAQ pdf document that provides even more detail.

Congrats Postini!
