IP Breaches Plague 32%

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Reconnex, the leader in information monitoring and protection appliances, today announced the findings of a new a survey focusing on the importance of protecting Intellectual Property (IP). The research, conducted by the Enterprise Strategy Group and summarized in the brief titled "Intellectual Property Rules," found that
one-third of the enterprises surveyed acknowledged loss of sensitive data in the last 12 months, while another 11 percent were unsure whether a breach occurred.

IP protection, which goes beyond just securing private records, has become such a priority that 90 percent of companies queried plan to deploy new technologies to secure their IP in the next 12 months.
