- 70% of our survey respondents identify security as a very important facet of an application delivery strategy, yet just 33% are very satisfied with the security features in their application delivery products.
- 45% say 26% or more of their business applications are deliverable via alternative (non-local PC client) methods.
- 42% use VMware ThinApp to encapsulate or centrally administer applications, but Microsoft App-V is hot on its heels with 38%.
