Firms spend more on printers than security

Monday, 3 May 2004, 12:49 AM EST

IDC's report agreed with research from the DTI that said a greater priority should be put on security, but that companies should move to a more systems-based approach where security is embedded in the network.

In 2003, companies spent £36bn on printers, and £35bn on security. It is well known that the printer market is kept artificially high by the inflated cost of ink and cartridges. In the case of security, however, waste comes through lack of integration, according to IDC's report, which said the figure should go up to £40bn this year, and £65bn by 2007.
