Email, virus, and spam volume continues to increase.  Consider this: in July 2007 ,  5 million messages were being addressed to the over 8,000 CGIAR staff all over the world —by  March-2008,  this had risen to 24 million. This means 32,000 messages per hour are sent to us, a 500% increase over the 6,000 per hour of nine months ago.   Even more interesting, over 80% are spam.

A partnership with CGNET and Symantec avoids these messages from reaching our networks and thus keeping valuable network bandwidth in the many remote locations we work free, so our scientists can concentrate on what really matters: focusing their efforts on the much needed life-saving research.
