Feedsee Storage : Storage Security : Protecting stored data an enterprise priority

A recent study by the Taneja Group revealed storage security as a top-five spending priority among new enterprise security initiatives. Over a hundred large enterprises in financial services, healthcare, and government were examined. Of the respondents, sixty-eight percent rated storage security a top five concern, with nearly thirty percent rating it as a number one priority. In addition, global key management is a concern, with fifty-four percent of users surveyed considering deploying a global key management system in the next twelve months. The survey revealed the forces driving their purchasing and deployment decisions around storage security, how storage security ranked in importance compared to other IT initiatives, and how end users plan to evolve their storage security infrastructure to meet the new realities imposed by compliance and data privacy regulations.
