Results of a global study of 3,100 IT managers in 12 countries.
Network security is the bedrock of every organization’s cyber defenses, the foundation on which other protection services such as endpoint, server, mobile and encryption are layered. It’s the trusty work horse that plays a pivotal role in keeping organizations moving.
To better understand the realities of network security today, Sophos commissioned leading research specialist Vanson Bourne to conduct an independent survey of 3,100 IT managers spanning 12 countries and six continents.
The results reveal the day-to-day experiences of IT teams across the globe when it comes to network threats and next-gen firewalls. The survey sheds new light onto the practical reality of today’s network security and the challenges IT teams face. It also reveals the Achilles heel of next-gen firewalls: the struggle to balance performance, privacy, and protection.
U.K.-based research house Vanson Bourne interviewed 3,100 IT decision makers between December 2018 and January 2019. To provide a representative size split within each country, respondents were divided equally between 100- 1,000 user organizations and 1,001-5,000 user organizations.
