The secure content management (SCM) software market is expected to reach $6.4 billion in 2007, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19 percent. Anti-spam products will continue to be an important adoption driver for secure content management technologies throughout the forecast period of 2003-2007, according to IDC.

“Virus infection is still the main concern regarding corporate security, but other factors, such as spam and regulatory compliance (e.g., HIPAA, GLBA, and SEC), are increasingly driving the adoption of secure content management technologies,” said Brian Burke, research manager for IDC’s Security Products service. “Anti-spam will continue to be an important adoption driver in the messaging security market, however IDC believes it will become a feature of messaging security and not a distinct market.”
