Forrester Research: IT Security Spending To Increase In 2010

“Cambridge, Mass., January 25, 2010 . . . According to a pair of new reports by Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR), approximately 40 percent of businesses will significantly increase their spending on new IT security technologies in 2010. Forty-two percent of enterprises expect to increase IT security spending on new technologies by 5 percent or more this year, and 37 percent of small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) expect to do the same. Forrester’s survey of nearly 2,200 enterprise and SMB business executives and technology decision-makers in North America and Europe is part of Forrester’s Business Data Services (BDS) series, which helps Vendor Strategy professionals profile their target market’s budget allocation and technology adoption.

‘As we move out of the recession, we expect to see security investments continue to grow, although the nature of that investment is changing,’ said Forrester Analyst and Vice President, Jonathan Penn.”
