Corporate officers responsible for network security do not worry as much as they used to about computer viruses and unauthorised access.
None of the respondents described themselves as “extremely concerned” about the perceived security threat of VoIP or unified comms systems, although 49% agreed that security should be a consideration when implementing IP-based comms.
The survey, conducted by Vanson Bourne at 100 firms employing at least 1,000 people, revealed that viruses, the prime concern of 55% of respondents in 2006, were cited by just 27% this year.
Less than a third of respondents were concerned about unauthorised access to data in 2007, compared with more than 50% in 2006.
