Why Read This Report

IT security investment has been faring relatively well through the economic downturn, and budgets appear to be strengthening, most notably in the area of new product purchases. Data security and network security top the technology areas of investment and attention, and application security continues to show signs of maturing in terms of enterprise practices as well as adoption of tools and services. Meanwhile, interest in and adoption of managed security services continues to grow across a broad array of areas, driven more by the improved protection it offers rather than a pure operational cost-savings argument. IT security groups continue to grapple with changing IT infrastructure and evolving business demands — yet, while cloud computing gets a lot of media attention, consumerization of IT registers the highest level of concern by IT security decision-makers. This document gives highlights of an extensive data set collected across North American and European enterprises via our Enterprise And SMB IT Security Survey, North America And Europe, Q3 2009.
