Encryption of Internet data communication is top priority

16.04.2007 - News from secunet.com

Encryption of Internet data communication is top priority Close to 70% of companies intend to have respective projects either completed or in progress by the end of 2007.

As regards IT security in companies, the encryption of data communication via the Internet (VPN) and laptop data security take top priority among German companies. 69.2% of the companies consider the encryption of data communication via the Internet to be the most urgent requirement, closely followed by laptop data security (68.2%). Hence, by the end of 2007, 67.9% of the companies intend to have respective data communication encryption projects either completed or in progress. In addition, 6.1% stated that respective projects are at least at the planning stage. This is the result of the ??Sicherheitscheck 2007?? study carried out by secunet Security Networks AG, Essen, among 1,139 IT decision-makers in various sectors in October 2006.

Over half of the surveyed companies also accorded high importance to central authorisation management (57.6 percent), e-mail encryption (57.5 percent) and securing web portals (56.8 percent). However, only 49.7 percent of the surveyed IT decision-makers saw a need for urgent to very urgent action in the field of intrusion detection systems, only 37.4 percent in public key infrastructure, only 35.6 percent in information security management systems, only 33 percent in single sign-on, only 26.2 percent in thin client architectures and only 24.9 percent in PIM push services. Decision-makers considered multifunctional corporate ID cards to be the least relevant area. Only 16.8 percent of the companies think there is a need for action in this field although such solutions increase process dynamics, security and efficiency in the company as well as reducing administrative expenses.
