  • So we start with the basics. Data must be: 1. secure, 2. reliable, and 3. adaptable to the business needs. In June 2005, IDC stated that “What both end-users and IT need is stable, secure, and accesible data.” But what does this really mean for organizations?
  • One quarter after GroupWise version 6 shipped, 96.3% of our GroupWise base had migrated from GroupWise version 5.5 to version 6. One quarter after GroupWise version 6.5 shipped, 93.5% of our GroupWise base had migrated from GroupWise version 6 to version 6.5 Lotus Notes has had confusion to work through with IBM's WorkPlace software clouding the migration path An estimated 40% (guess, need backup) of Microsoft Exchange's base is still on version 5.5 and faces an enormous cost to get to 2003.
  • There are as many Notes users as Exchange users. This will refute any points that we have fewer vulnerabilities than Exchange because we have fewer users.
  • Many e-mail clients use SOAP to access mailboxes. Administrators can now configure the Post Office Agent to communicate with SOAP-enabled e-mail clients, as it has been doing for IMAP e-mail clients.

    3. 3. Today's Messaging Environment
    4. 4. The purpose of IT is to support the business.
    5. 5. We understand that the basics matter. 1 2 3 Secure Reliable Adaptable “ What both end-users and IT administrators need is stable, secure and accessible data.” – Robert Mahowald Program Director IDC, June 2005
    6. 6. Upgrade Fidelity <ul><ul><ul><li>93.5 percent within </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>one quarter </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>IBM workplace </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>questions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>5.5 Support </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Extension </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>70 percent of the Microsoft Exchange base is on outdated versions (“Microsoft Exchange and Outlook, Market Analysis, 2005-2009” February 2005, ). </li></ul><ul><li>32 percent on Exchange 5.5: final support ends this year. </li></ul><ul><li>38 percent on Exchange 2000: free support ends this year. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Skipping the basics is disastrous. “ Authorities say unidentified hackers from Asia have been launching a wave of attacks ... The software in the emails secretly installs itself on the computer, typically either when the recipient opens an attachment or clicks on a link to a Web site. Once installed, a remote hacker can gain access to the system to obtain passwords, scan the network or gather information.” – “ Asian Hackers Blamed for Attacks On U.K., U.S. Computer Networks”, The Wall Street Journal, June 20, 2005 <ul><ul><li>“ With our email offline for the foreseeable future, we found ourselves confronting the Ghost of Workplaces Past – depending on age, we were either reaching back more than a decade to remember how offices worked before email became commonplace, or in completely uncharted territory.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>– “ The Day the Email Died,” The Wall Street Journal , June 6, 2005 </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. The problem is this: many IT vendors still skip the basics. “ Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-021 Vulnerability in Exchange Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution (894549)” — Microsoft, April 2005: “ Anti-virus vendor Symantec has released patches for a security vulnerability in several enterprise and consumer products that can be exploited to bypass scanning functionality. ...The affected enterprise products include ... Symantec SAV/Filter for Domino NT and Symantec Mail Security for Exchange . Several consumer products in the Norton suite also are vulnerable, Symantec Corp. said.” — eWeek , April 2005:,1759,1790895,00.asp “ Since Sasser hit in May 2004, (Microsoft) has released 32 &quot;critical&quot; bulletins to fix flaws that could be exploited without any user interaction.” — eWeek , May 2005:,1759,1816530,00.asp
