    The full poll results are:

    What percentage of your security team's time is devoted to supporting
    compliance efforts?
    40% of respondents spend less than 25%
    29% of respondents spend 25 - 50%
    16% of respondents spend 51 - 75%
    15% of respondents spend 76 - 100%
    Total Votes: 103

    According to Elizabeth Ireland, VP of Strategy for nCircle, "Compliance
has become a factor in every business process and it's not a surprise to see
so much focus on compliance. It is surprising, though, to see that one third
of the respondents are spending more than half of their time on compliance.
This is a strong indicator that these teams need to automate their compliance
