ITtoolbox has released their enterprise spyware survey.

Findings:

Corporations are still underutilizing available solutions for its detection and removal.

88% had detected spyware on their corporate network but only 52% had purchased and were using an anti-spyware software solution.

* Increased spam, network congestion, and network crashes were the top three security issues that corporations face as a result of spyware.
* 63% of respondents stated that their organization had spyware adequately controlled, but would benefit from improvements in spyware detection and removal.
* Pop-up ads, other Web sites, and drive-by downloads were the top three ways spyware gained access to corporate networks.
