This is tangentially related to firewalls, so I apologize in advance.
If anyone knows of a more appropriate venue for this, please let me
I have a multi-national customer with approximately 200 sites that will
soon be connected with a WAN and additionally have Internet access
through some yet to be determined firewall.
They would like a mechanism that would allow them to detect
incoming/outgoing Internet mail that did not meet "company policies".
This could be sexual content, frivilous material, trade secrets, etc.
The obvious places to check are the firewall and mail server(s).
I realize that there are still a million ways to get the info out and
it's probably a bad idea, but I'm curious about potential commercial or
custom-built applications and the price.
Thanks in advance for your help.
