NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Evolving IT Security Trends and Challenges Within Today's Organizations
The customer research study investigates the IT security trends and challenges within today's organizations. In particular, it investigates deployment status of a variety of solutions, it explores which security solutions are being outsourced to managed security service providers (MSSPs), and it aims to understand the top security priorities within today's organizations. It appears that firewall/VPN remains the most prevalent security solution, while reduction of customer identity theft and fraud remains the top security priority, followed by reduction of law breaching behavior. Moreover, only one third of respondents report outsourcing IT security to MSSPs, to which firewall/VPN solutions are mostly outsourced.
Research BackgroundAs the sophistication and frequency of cyber threats continues to increase, the information technology (IT) security industry faces the daunting challenge of defending against heterogeneous, complicated attack methods. Protection against data theft and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks remain a top priority within the industry.Businesses of all sizes face unprecedented security risks with the emergence of innovative IT strategies such as the bring your own device (BYOD) trend, social media, and cloud computing. Weak mobile-device management and ineffective security solutions pose a high threat to personal and intellectual property (IP) data through the proliferation of mobile malware.The severity of cyber threats against government systems became clear in light of the increased targeting of key energy and utility systems by supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) attacks. The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported that, in 2011 alone, three U.S. cities experienced SCADA breaches.TABLE OF CONTENTS Research Objectives and Methods 6Executive Summary 11Security Systems' Deployment Status and Importance 13•Currently Deployed Security Solutions: Total Sample 14•Currently Deployed Security SolutionsVertical Market Assessment: Education 15•Currently Deployed Security SolutionsVertical Market Assessment: Government 16•Currently Deployed Security Solutions Vertical Market Assessment: Financial Services 17•Currently Deployed Security Solutions Vertical Market Assessment: Healthcare 18•Currently Deployed Security Solutions Vertical Market Assessment: Retail 19Outsourcing to MSSPs 20•Outsourcing to MSSPs 21•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying Firewall/VPN Solutions 22•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying Anti-Malware Solutions 23•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying NAC Solutions 24•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying DLP Solutions 25•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying IDS/IPS Solutions 26•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying UTM Solutions 27•Outsourcing to MSSPs Among Organizations Deploying SIEM/Log Management Solutions 28Top Security Priorities 29•Top Security Priority: Total Sample 30•Top Security Priorities by Deployed Solution 31Firmographics 32•Overall Workforce Trends 33Appendix 39The Frost & Sullivan Story 41 To order this report: Evolving IT Security Trends and Challenges Within Today's Organizations Contact Clare: email@example.comUS:(339) 368 6001Intl:+1 339 368 6001 SOURCE Reportlinker
