The importance of having Web security has grown as the Internet continues to evolve as one of the most beneficiary, yet dangerous, technologies for SMB users. According to the SMB State of Security (SOS) survey of 450 IT managers and employees within the United States, conducted by Dynamic Markets Ltd., and commissioned by Websense, small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) fail to take adequate steps to reduce the risk off data loss from Web-based security threats. The research shows that while 46 percent of SMB IT managers say they have software to protect company confidential data, 81 percent do not use software to block the use of peer-to-peer applications, control the use of instant messaging (76 percent), or stop spyware from sending out information to external sources (47 percent)
