84% of corporate WLAN deployments have never had a break-in

JupiterResearch reports that employee demand drives many deployments and that while security concerns remain high, 84% of survey respondents have not experienced a security breach due to their WLAN. Deployments are growing in size, but companies are not, for the most part, willing to go completely wireless.

JupiterResearch reports that employee demand drives many deployments and that while security concerns remain high, 84% of survey respondents have not experienced a security breach due to their WLAN. Deployments are growing in size, but companies are not, for the most part, willing to go completely wireless. Just 6% of mid/large-size companies with current deployments have 90% or more of their employees on a WLAN; 22% of mid/large-size companies expect to offer such broad wireless access to employees in 2005.

Number of companies spending more than $10,000 annually will grow from 26% in 2003 to 35% in 2004. Not only are smaller companies spending more, but also as the industry matures, larger entities are beginning to trial and buy large-scale deployments.
