The findings also reveal that only 38 per cent believe that legislation such as the EU directive will reduce spam for businesses.
68 per cent of respondents consider e-mail borne viruses to still be a significant threat to their corporate networks, while 54 per cent also see spam as a major threat to their business. However, only 46 per cent of those surveyed believe that their in-house filters tackle the problem effectively.
Commenting on the findings, John Cheney, CEO, BlackSpider Technologies said: The results reflect that the industry doesn't perceive Microsoft to be a significant security authority. It is going to take more than a single vendor to stop spam. A combination of technology, legislation and a change in working practices is what is needed.
