Enterprises More Likely to Adopt Online Backup, Survey Says

By Mary Jander, June 19, 2008 4:10 PM

The bigger the company, the more likely it is to procure online backup services.

That's part of what turned up in as-yet-unpublished results of an April 2008 survey of 325 U.S.-based respondents, conducted by research company In-Stat.

"It looks as though as size goes up, so does adoption," says In-Stat analyst Jeff Jernigan. Of respondents surveyed, 7 percent of those from companies with fewer than 100 employees reported using online backup services; 20 percent of those from firms with over 100 reported using them.

Similarly, 20 percent working for companies with 100 to 1,000 employees reported using online backup services, while 23 percent of those from firms with over 1,000 employees reported using the services.
