The article presents information related to the findings of a survey by the Web security firm Sophos PLC concerning data leakage via electronic-mail (e-mail). According to the findings of the survey, almost three-quarters of firms are concerned about data leakage via e-mail, as half of employees admit to sending e-mails to the wrong person. Sophos holds that the problem potentially caused corporate embarrassment, compliance breaches and the loss of business critical information. Sophos recently announced its e-mail security appliances could now prevent the loss of corporate data through e-mail leaks.
