Until recently corporations have tried to protect confidential company data from unauthorized external users with traditional Internet security, i.e., firewalls, anti-virus software, and proxy servers. With e-business emerging as a critical tool for modern Business-to-Business procedures, there is an increasing need to add additional security measures to the traditional firewall, anti-virus software and proxy server. Content filtering starts where traditional security ends. It protects data from misuse, from both within and outside the corporate entity.

The purpose of attacks has changed. Loss of confidential data remains a significant security concern for most corporations.

Loss of confidential data remains a significant security concern for most corporations. The Department of Commerce reported that US businesses alone incurred a US $ 12.5 billion loss in intellectual property. According to a recent survey conducted by the Computer Security Institute, over 87 percent of information security managers say that current or former employees are the most common cause of data security incidents. Misuse of confidential company information can result in far greater financial loss than for example the breakdown of an entire network. Officially recorded crimes have more than doubled in the last 10 years alone. This is just the tip of the iceberg.Content security solutions are becoming key criteria for determining the future success of a company. Damage caused by the unauthorized transmission of confidential information can in the short term destroy the success of a company.
