The Radicati Group Releases New Study, "Messaging & Collaboration - Business User Survey, 2007"

A New Business User Survey From The Radicati Group, Inc. Identifies User Attitudes, and Behaviors With Regards to Messaging, Collaboration, Security, Archiving, Compliance, Instant Messaging, and Business Social Networking Software

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - The Radicati Group, Inc.'s latest study, "Messaging and Collaboration - Business User Survey, 2007," shows corporate business usage and attitudes with regards to messaging and collaboration within a broad set of companies across the world.

On average, survey respondents sent 38 e-mail messages per day, compared to receiving 93 e-mail messages per day. Of the 93 daily e-mails received, an average of 18 e-mails included an attachment.

On average, survey respondents indicated that 18% of the total messages received are spam. This is encouraging considering that 75% of all e-mail traffic is spam, as it suggests that anti-spam technologies are keeping up with the latest spamming techniques.

According to study, 77% of respondents at times forward their business emails to their personal accounts. This can be frightening for organizations -- especially those in regulated industries -- as once these emails are forwarded outside of the company's network, they are non-compliant and can potentially be leaked to any number of third-party individuals.
