Enterprises are using more secure practices when it comes to data communications, according to a security survey conducted by Boca Raton, Fla.-based Amplitude Research Inc., commissioned by Albuquerque, N.M.-based VanDyke Software Inc. Close to two-thirds (148) of 235 respondents are somewhat or very satisfied with the reliability and usability of their secure file transfer solution. However, 163 of 245 respondents said they are likely to purchase a new or replacement secure file transfer solution within the next 12 months.This is the fourth year in a row that VanDyke Software has commissioned an Amplitude Research survey of network and system administrators from a variety of industries, including the insurance industry, on the subject of network security. The questions have remained mostly the same, although minor adjustments have been made to include questions about current industry developments.

When compared to the results from the previous three years, the 2007 results represent a breakout year in the areas of secure file transfer and remote server access as network and systems administrators responded with clear indications that their organizations had increased their commitment in each of these areas, according to VanDyke.
