TalkTalk finds two-thirds of SME bosses worried about network security
Two-thirds of small business owners have concerns over the security of their computer networks, according to a new study from TalkTalk Business.

Furthermore, three in four respondents admitted that employees who access the internet for work are being subjected to material that could be considered offensive on a weekly basis.

TalkTalk carried out the research to mark the launch of WorkSafe, a security and website filtering system created to meet demand from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for a solution to these problems.

Included at no extra cost with TalkTalk Business' broadband service, WorkSafe is designed to help owners of smaller firms safeguard their employees.

Charles Bligh, managing director of TalkTalk Business, said it is "significant" that so many small business bosses feel their network security poses a problem.

"It's a situation which has the potential to cause real headaches for small business owners, so we felt it was important that we provide a practical tool which empowers employers to tackle the situation," he explained.
