It’s no surprise that in a recent survey of 488 IT workers, according to IT PRO, two thirds of them claim that security is not mission critical to their company. Tom Gaffney of F-Secure thinks that desktop security is a non-starter:
Gaffney expressed concerns over whether top level executives will ever recognise how important security is.
“I am very skeptical they ever will. That is the reality we have seen already in the desktop world,” he told IT PRO. “I don’t think it will be just one event that will change things.”
Desktop security IS on the agenda for companies that must adhere to regulatory requirements and for others that understand the key to preventing malware is to eliminate administrative privileges.
