China Rates Itself As World's #1 In Deploying Technologies To Establish Trusted IT Infrastructure

HOPKINTON, Mass., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EMC ® Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced results of an independent survey revealing fresh insights about IT strategies and infrastructures deployed within companies and governments throughout the world. Most notably, respondents cite a startling lack of senior executive confidence that permeates organizations globally, specifically concerning readiness around the critical IT requirements of continuous availability; advanced security; and integrated backup and recovery. Reduced investment in these critical areas threatens the ability of IT infrastructures to withstand and quickly recover from disruptive incidents such as unplanned downtime, security breaches and data loss and underscores the need to adopt progressive strategies to achieve Trusted IT infrastructures.

The Global IT Trust Curve survey, administered by independent market research firm Vanson Bourne, spans 3,200 interviews across 16 countries and 10 industry sectors.

China received the top maturity ranking: Chinese IT decision makers reported implementing the highest concentration of sophisticated continuous availability, advanced security, and integrated backup and recovery technologies. The United States ranked second in maturity on the IT Trust Curve. Underscoring swift and aggressive technology investments to solidify their world influence, three of the four most mature countries — China, South Africa and Brazil — are BRICS nations. Japan ranked last on the IT Trust Curve in the 16-nation survey.

David Goulden, EMC President and Chief Operating Officer, said, "The four big megatrends in information technology today are cloud computing, Big Data, social networking and mobile devices. Adoption and maturity of these trends must float upon a sea of trust — trust that my information is secure in the cloud, trust that my data won't be lost or stolen, trust that my IT will be operational when it needs to be — which, these days, is all the time. The more trust that can be earned and guaranteed, the bigger and faster the impact of these trends. Conversely, the less trust that is established, the more limited these trends will be. Where countries fall on the IT Trust maturity curve could affect their overall ability to compete."
