Security is Asia Pacific's #1 reason for adopting open source

Open source is more secure. Customers say so.

According to a recent IDC report, security is the top reason that companies throughout Asia Pacific are adopting open source.

"The results indicate that organizations perceived open source technology as providing better security compared to proprietary products," said Prianka Srinivasan, Market Analyst at IDC?s Asia/Pacific Software Research team. "Though cost-efficiency remains a key decision factor, the results also suggest that organizations look forward to leverage open source technology to primarily fulfill their requirements for specific functionalities instead of widespread deployment."
