Evolving IT Security Trends And Challenges Within Today's Organizations

NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Evolving IT Security Trends and Challenges Within Today's Organizations's-Organizations.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Security_Systems

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.
