Google’s paid email plans – Powered by Postini
Google on Tuesday unveiled a new series of “Powered by Postini” hosted email and messaging services that are aimed at simplifying its software-as-a-service offerings and cutting its prices. Google, of Mountain View, California, is reorganizing several of the email security and compliance services from its acquisition last year of Postini into three packages, said Scott Petry, founder of Postini and product management director in Google’s Enterprise Management division.
Postini-based spam filtering is now available (and compatible with all major e-mail clients) starting at just $3 per year per client. Google’s security services scale upwards in price and features from there. The highest tier of service is $25 per year and includes Google Message Security along with a full year of message archiving, retention, and discovery. All of these new services are fully compatible with a number of e-mail systems, including Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Novell Groupwise.
Google’s new “Powered by Postini” product line is also another piece of ammunition in the search giant’s ongoing battle with Microsoft over both online business collaboration and local office application housing. The vast majority of consumers and businesses still rely on Microsoft Office as a solution in both areas, but Google is betting that the combination of an attractive set of features and aggressive pricing can steadily whittle customers away from Redmond.
