WSJ.com - Laptops Prove Weakest Link In Data Security

WSJ.com - Laptops Prove Weakest Link In Data Security: "In 2005, U.S. corporations spent $12 billion on information security, including antivirus and antispyware software, and systems to authenticate users who sign on to computer terminals, according to IDC, a Framingham, Mass., technology research firm. But companies spent less than $100 million on encryption software for laptops and desktops.
While surveys show that more than 60% of large companies use some form of encryption software on laptops, it is typically installed only on machines used by the highest level employees, like the chief executive and chief financial officer, says Charles Kolodgy, an IDC research director."
