Hidden Costs of Open Source Email Security to be Highlighted in Commtouch cPanel Conference Presentation
“Open source may seem the most economical solution in many areas, including combating spam or malware,” said Stoney Brooks, director of business development at Commtouch, which presented at the conference. “It’s important to remember that free is not always totally free, and these solutions usually do not provide adequate protection from the growing onslaught of spam and viruses.”
During the presentation in cPanel, Mr. Brooks use case studies to illustrate how open source solutions can seriously impact the costs – both capital and operating – in ways not always obvious. It will also provide a framework for hosting providers to evaluate other ways to reduce costs and provide better protection for email.
