Software Security and Compliance Among Top Priorities for Businesses in 2007

A New Corporate IT Survey From The Radicati Group, Inc. Explores Corporate Usage, Attitudes, and Procurement Plans With Regards to Messaging, Collaboration, Wireless Email, Security, Archiving, Instant Messaging, Unified Communications, VoIP, and Business Social Software

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - The Radicati Group, Inc.'s latest study, "Corporate IT Survey - Messaging and Collaboration, 2007-2008," finds that Security, Reducing downtime and Compliance are the top priorities for businesses in 2007.

Security has always been a leading concern for businesses. Despite the broad range of anti-spam products available today, 42% of businesses surveyed reported an increase in Spam traffic between 2006 and 2007.

Reducing downtime was another strong priority, indicating that products still have a way to go to meet mission-critical business requirements.

Also demand for Compliance has risen dramatically since the last year, with 68% of Large businesses indicating that compliance is their top concern, while almost 80% of Very Large businesses indicated that compliance is their leading concern in 2007.

While most organizations still deploy insourced email solutions, the study shows that hosted email made up one-third of messaging system deployments surveyed, as 29% of survey respondents outsourced at least part of their messaging system in 2007.
