PGP Corporation, Palo Alto, Calif., a leader in enterprise data protection, has announced that new research conducted by the TheInfoPro (TIP), an independent research network and leading supplier of market intelligence for the information technology industry, reveals that PGP Corporation is once again the leading provider for secure email and data encryption technologies among Fortune(R) 1000 companies. TheInfoPro's "Wave 9, F1000 Information Security Study (Summer 2007)" indicates that PGP Corporation is the top vendor in use and in plan in both areas, ahead of competitors such as Check Point Software, Entrust, IBM, Microsoft, and many others.

"Over the past few years, there has been a real shift toward protecting the data versus protecting the network as large companies, government agencies, and educational institutions across the U.S. continue to be affected by data breaches," said Bill Trussell, managing director of security for TheInfoPro. "Our survey indicates that IT managers are clearly concerned about protecting their organizations' data and plan to deploy encryption solutions such as those provided by PGP Corporation, if they haven't already done so."

TIP surveyed more than 150 information security professionals from North American Fortune(R) 1000 enterprises about implementation and spending plans, vendors, and products in 43 information security technology categories, including email and data encryption software to provide infrastructure security. The Wave 9 study indicates that encryption is the number one project for IT over the next 12 months and that data encryption is #2 on the Top 10 list of infrastructure security technologies currently in use. The study also found that the application of data encryption for wireless networking is eclipsed by full disk encryption for laptops and workstations as more enterprises realize the potential for data breaches due to loss or theft of disks from these devices. End users cited represent some of the world's most popular brands, such as Cisco Systems, Citigroup, FedEx, IBM, JPMorgan, Microsoft, Oracle, Pfizer, Sprint, and Visa.

"The results of this latest study by TheInfoPro come as no surprise to us because we are continually helping our customers solve their toughest enterprise data protection needs: to keep them out of the headlines and compliant with all relevant regulations," said Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of PGP Corporation. "We take great pride in the fact that our email and data security solutions continue to experience widespread adoption among Fortune 1000 IT managers, and that we are on every IT security and infrastructure security shortlist."

TIP also released its "Wave 9 Midsize Enterprise (MSE) Report (Summer 2007)," which was based on interviews with 69 IT professionals at North American midsize enterprises and revealed the same findings about PGP Corporation's leadership in the secure email and data encryption market. In addition, PGP Corporation is mentioned as one of the most "exciting" information security vendors among midsize enterprises. Copies of the full reports are available by subscription:
