EMC Announces Results of Global Trust Curve Survey
EMC announced results of its first Global IT Trust Curve survey, an independent study focusing on trust and security issues in companies and governments throughout the world. Administered by independent market research firm Vanson Bourne, the survey spans 3,200 interviews across 16 countries and 10 industry sectors. The interviews were conducted with 1600 IT professionals and 1600 business decision makers, 50% of whom work for organizations of 100-1000 employees, while the other 50% are employed by organizations with 1000 or more employees.
Most notably, respondents cited a startling lack of senior executive confidence concerning readiness around the critical IT requirements of continuous availability; advanced security; and integrated backup and recovery. At the same time, reduced investment in these areas threatens the ability of IT infrastructures to withstand and quickly recover from disruptive incidents, such as unplanned downtime, security breaches and data loss, and underscores the need to adopt progressive strategies to achieve Trusted IT infrastructures.
