    Concerns Mount

    80% of business and 69% of IT decision-makers are very concerned about their organization's ability to protect against a data breach.

As the digital age unfolds, enterprise security threats—and the complexity of threats—continue to grow at an alarming pace. As a result, organizations are looking for new and better ways to protect their data and infrastructure. A newly released IDG Connect report sponsored by Unisys, "Data Security in the Borderless Enterprise," examines issues as well as attitudes about vulnerabilities. It found that concerns over network security, device security, data security and application security are consuming growing amounts of time and resources. What's more, 91 percent of business leaders are concerned about customer perceptions of their ability to protect personal data. "Business and technology decision-makers are seeing threats [coming] from all directions and are looking for new ways to protect their organizations and their clients," says Steve Vinsik, vice president of global security solutions at Unisys. Among other things, the survey found that business and IT leaders are looking for greater flexibility in security solutions and the way they manage costs. "Security is no longer considered only an IT challenge, but a business challenge as well," Vinsik points out.
