SANS - Survey on application security programs

Britain's largest independent ISP, Internet Technology Group (ITG), has attracted more than 150,000 Net users in the last two months, the company said today. Thanks to the recent launch of new branded ISP services, including Waitrose.com and Freenetname, ITG now boasts more than 300,000 Net users. By contrast, Cheshire-based Telinco claims to look after 850,000 Net users in Britain through its branded services including bun.com, strayduck.com and Themutual.net. AOL UK -- part of AOL Europe -- reckons its brands (AOL UK, Netscape Online and CompuServe) amount to one million users. Freeserve still leads the way with a soupcon under 1.5 million. This figure could swell even more after it announced today that it would also support Mac users with the launch of a new software CD. ®
