)-- Glomark-Governan, the leading provider of business case solutions for sales, marketing, product development and IT organizations, has released a preliminary sampling of IT security benchmarks from an IT Security Research Study concluded in the third quarter of 2008.
The Glomark-Governan research study on the benefits and risks of IT Security measures identified a series of actual improvements that have already been achieved with various types of IT Security implementations.
Based on Glomark-Governan’s research—and depending on the type of security solution—the security protection improvements can vary in the following ranges, which can be used as benchmarks:
· Detection of Spyware: 52% to 75%
· Detection of Spam: 82% to 97%
· Detection of Threats/Viruses: 67% to 100%
The complete Glomark-Governan IT Security Research report will be available for purchase in September 2008.
