Internet giant Google announced last year that it was shutting down Postini, the email and web archiving and security facility it has owned since 2007, when it was bought for $625mn. These cloud computing services, which filter email spam and malware before it reaches a client’s mail server, also offer optional email archiving.
The internet giant says the process of moving away from Postini will take place throughout 2013, with customers receiving further information about the transition process with a minimum of 60 days’ notice ahead of their migration being scheduled to start.
