         STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 27, 1998-- 
                 GartnerGroup Research Helps IT Professionals
       Establish Information Security Strategies for the Next Millennium
         Information-security penetration is a rapidly growing problem. Forty
    percent of 400 companies surveyed by GartnerGroup reported recent break-ins
    to their computer networks, even though thirty percent said they were
    protected by firewalls. The FBI has estimated that ninety-five percent of
    unauthorized computer incursions go undetected. An estimated 108 million
    people will be working outside the traditional office by 2002. To meet
    their information needs, companies will need to provide greater remote
    access in the next millennium despite the threat of information security
         To help IT managers establish strategies to meet these challenges,
    InfoEdge has published the first-ever report dedicated specifically to
    Information Security entitled Information Security in a Networked World:
    How Vulnerable Are You? This report, compiled from Gartner Group, Inc.
    research, provides IT professionals with research and advice on
    establishing an Information Security strategy for the next millennium. It
    addresses such topics as: the latest security technologies and products;
    how to handle virus-enabled malicious code; new methods to secure
    application products and their databases; controlling access in a mobile
    world; and the legal implications of doing something (or nothing) about
    information security.
         The revolution of Internet commerce will make information security
    more critical than ever. By 2001, seventy-five percent of intranet Web
    servers will run on Windows NT, an operating system that has not been
    immune to incursions. The Internet networking protocol was developed to
    enable communications, but securing those communications was never
    considered. The unfortunate fact is that hackers have circumvented much of
    today's protection technology.
         Protecting information systems is vital to almost every corporation in
    the world. This report from InfoEdge provides the definitive answers that
    IT managers need to know to protect their systems from unauthorized
    incursions and maintain system integrity and continuity.
