Your organization runs on email. It’s the main way you communicate internally and externally and you rely on it being available all day, every day. It’s a gateway to other critical IT systems and home to a treasure trove of corporate information your employees value. For all it offers, email needs to be protected and managed or it risks exposing your organization and your data to attack. Your customers and your supply chain are far too valuable to take that chance. It also needs to be effectively archived to meet growing compliance, e-discovery and legal obligations.

    Easy Interview


    I was contacted by the recruiter on LinkedIn. After brief phone screens with her and later the hiring manager, I was asked to come in.

    I spoke with four different people. None of them – including a senior recruiting leader – came in with prepared questions. None of them seemed to come in with a particular set of traits, skills, or experiences to screen for. The "looseness" and casualness of these interviews was a troubling sign to me, because no interview prep means lots of room for bias and interviewer subjectivity to come in. So while it was an easy interview and pleasant conversation, the whole time I was thinking about how D&I isn't yet a part of their operating system, and whomever got this role would have their work cut out for them.

    I didn't hear from them for a few weeks and later was told that they went with a candidate in the UK. When I asked for the email addresses of those I spoke with so I could thank them and ask for feedback, I was told I'd get them but never did.
