The Radicati Group Releases "Survey: Security, Archiving and Compliance, 2011-2012"

In-Depth Survey Which Explores Corporate Deployment, User Behavior, and Future Plans With Regards to Security, Archiving and Compliance

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - The Radicati Group's latest study, "Survey: Security, Archiving and Compliance, 2011-2012," provides an in-depth look at corporate deployments and user behavior of 100 organizations worldwide with regards to Security, Archiving and Compliance. The survey sample represented over 228,068 business users.

Spam, viruses and other malware are a continuing concern with business and consumer users. Respondents indicated on average that about 16% of the email they receive is spam. This is slightly lower than last year when respondents reported that 19% of email received was spam. Considering that overall Internet spam traffic continues to increase, this decrease shows that email security solutions are making headway in keeping under control the amount of spam that reaches end-users' inbox.

Email archiving is gaining penetration across all industries with over half of survey respondents indicating they have an email archiving solution in place. The survey also indicates that eDiscovery and DLP solutions are still lagging behind in adoption as organizations do not always have a clear view of what these services provide.
