IT professionals 'deterred by zero data loss costs'

17 June 2010

Cost is still posing an issue for agencies aiming at a figure of zero data loss across their operations.

This is the conclusion of a report by technology solutions specialist Axxana, which has suggested that tools to prevent incidents can be affordable and are gradually becoming within reach of most organizations.

A poll of 200 IT decision makers in the US and UK by Vanson Bourne for the firm found 57 per cent of respondents felt that the level of expenditure required to prevent breaches was inhibiting adoption.

Financial services specialists were least likely to be concerned by cost and those in the manufacturing sector to be most deterred by it, while big rather than small businesses were most worried about spending on zero data loss technology.

"This survey has really shown how today's end users still feel that eliminating data loss though a disaster recovery strategy is still out of their budget," Axxana's Chief Executive, Eli Efrat, stated.

In the UK, the Information Commissioner's Office recently reported that more than 1,000 data security incidents have now been reported to it.
