Research Examines Enterprise Collaboration, Disaster Recovery, and Encryption

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2013) - Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its Enterprise Mobility and Collaboration, IT Infrastructure, and IT Security research practices.

"Fostering Innovation, Ideation, and Agility with Enterprise-Grade Collaboration," authored by Andrew Borg, Research Director for Enterprise Mobility and Collaboration, tracks the rise of enterprise-class collaboration solutions that enable organizations to take advantage of disruptive market forces by fostering a more agile, innovative, and ultimately more efficient work culture. The study finds that 39% of top performing organizations, the Best-in-Class, already provide mobile access to secure and compliant collaboration tools -- but even Industry Average and Laggard organizations have aggressive plans to implement secure collaboration in 2013. To obtain a complimentary copy of this report visit http://www.aberdeen.com/link/sponsor.asp?spid=30410182&cid=8510&camp=2

"Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: Mitigate Risk, Engage Technology and Implementation Experts," prepared by Robert Bready, Research Director and Analyst for Aberdeen's IT Infrastructure practice, focuses on the actions, capabilities and technology enablers that Best-in-Class organizations possess, practice and utilize to continue business operations. The Aberdeen Analyst Insight document reviews the high cost of downtime, and reveals how top performing organizations limit those events and the time to recover. Find out how your organization can stacks up and what actions can be taken to accomplish zero downtime.

"Understanding Your Encryption Footprint: Your Reliance on Security and Trust," written by Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for Aberdeen's IT Security research practice, highlights the surprising extent to which encryption has been adopted across the extended enterprise: an increase of nearly 2-times over the last five years, based on Aberdeen's data. The critical implication is that encryption keys and certificates are relied upon not only as the foundation for information security, but also as the basis for trust in critical IT infrastructure. Does your organization have the operational capabilities it needs to sustain security, and the visibility it needs to respond to a compromise in trust?
